Arcon Yachts has reduced the price of Perini Navi’s ketch sailing yacht Burrasca by $500,000. She is currently based in Monaco and has a new asking price of €16.5 million.

56m Burrasca was built at the Italian shipyard’s facility in Viareggio in 2003. She is one of the first Perini Navi builds to feature the design work of Ron Holland, who since 2003, has gone on to design the interior of two other notable 56m Perini Navi builds, Bayesian and Selene, and the exterior for a further 12 Perini Navi builds ranging from 43.5m to 63.4m.

At 497 gross tons, Burrasca is one of the more voluminous sailing yachts in the fleet. Only 2.3 per cent of the sailing yacht fleet exceeds the 500GT mark. Her capacious interior permits her to sleep 12 guests over a five en-suite stateroom layout; only 2.2 per cent of the sailing yacht fleet can accommodate 12 or more guests on board.

Burrasca is also a more than capable motorsailer; she is fitted with twin inboard Deutz TBD616 V12 engines, with 1,240 hours on the clock since their 6,000-hour overhaul in 2014. She has a fuel capacity of 55,000 litres, allowing a 17 knot maximum speed and a boundless 6,000 nautical mile range at 10 knots under motor. 

Burrasca’s 10-year ABS classification survey was completed in the summer of 2014. Additionally, she underwent extensive servicing and upgrading of all on board systems.

There is a very limited selection of sailing yachts on the market at this size, henceforth their sales are few and far between. Twizzle was sold earlier this month for what was expected to be in the region of the €39.75 million final asking price. However, last year only one sailing yacht above 50m was sold - 51.7m Red Dragon. No second-hand Perini Navi build of this size has been sold since 56m Salute in December 2014.
