Perini Navi has announced the sale of a 60m ketch, hull number C.2232. This aluminium sailing yacht will be the third in the most recent series of Blue Water Sailing Yachts created by Perini Navi.
The latest contract was signed with the collaboration of Fraser Yachts. For the first time, the interior will see the collaboration between Perini Navi and Italian architect Michela Reverberi, whose timeless elegance and style will complete the innovative design of this 60m hull.
Following on from the recently delivered Seahawk and the soon to be launched sloop Perseus3, C. 2232 has a sleek hull and superstructure in aluminum with a gross tonnage of under 500 GT and displacement of approximately 570 tonnes.
Her innovative hull lines and technological solutions guarantee speed and performance under sail, along with uncompromised comfort and safety. At the yacht’s racing debut in the recent St. Barths Bucket, Seahawk’s performance amply exceeded her predicted performances, much to the joy of her owners.
Created by Perini Navi Design Team, the vessel naval architecture is optimised in collaboration with Ron Holland and her two Panamax aluminum masts – dressed with carbon fiber rigging, booms and spreaders – carry over 2000 square meters of sail area. Sailing performance is enhanced by the unprecedented power and speed built into the latest Perini Navi sail handling technology.
Highly optimised performance-oriented centerboard keel affords typical Perini Navi accessibility to shallow waters.
Delivery of C.2232 is scheduled for 2016. In the meantime the Perini Navi has several other yachts under construction at various stage of completion: the sloop Perseus3, the 2nd yacht in the 60m Series; the 70 m ketch Sybaris; the recently contacted 38m sloop C.2130, second yacht in the Perini Navi racing line and the 73m Picchiotti motoryacht Grace E.
