The Perini Navi Group, one of the world leaders in the design and construction of large motor and sailing yachts, will be present for the first time at the Singapore Yacht Show with their 50m M/Y Exuma, the first Picchiotti motor yacht from the Vitruvius® series.
The yacht show will be held from 10th April to 13th April 2014 at the One 15 Marina Club, Sentosa Cove, Singapore.
Exuma, the first Picchiotti motor yacht in the Vitruvius® series, created through collaboration between the Perini Navi Group, Vitruvius Ltd and French naval architect Philippe Briand, has been designed for maximum efficiency and for navigating in total autonomy. Her sleek aluminium hull follows BOS® Hull (Briand Optimised Stretched Hull) guidelines that make for a GT of 497 tons and a full load displacement of 400 tons. Her draft is just 2.3m so that she can enter shallow waters and her autonomy is 6.500 nm at12 knots.
Since her delivery in 2010, Exuma has embarked on a round the world tour leaving her Mediterranean home port, crossing the Atlantic and touring the Caribbean and from there off to the Pacific Ocean where to date she has navigated approximately 44.444 nautical miles.
Widely recognised as one of the best motor yachts of her time, Exuma has won a variety of prestigious international awards such as "Motor Yacht of the Year" and "Best Displacement motor yacht of below 500 GT".
She has been awarded Rina Green plus Platinum certification, considered to be the highest recognition for respect of the environment. She also won Most Innovative Yacht of the Year at the 2010 World Yacht Trophy and “Asia-based Charter Yacht of the Year 2012” at the Asia Pacific Awards 2012.
