Perini Navi Launch New 50m 'Enterprise'

Perini Navi have just launched their 52nd yacht in their sailing fleet, the 50m (164ft) ketch Enterprise. She was designed by the naval architects at Perini Navi in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland. She has an aluminium hull with sleek and aggressive lines which, combined with a longer waterline make for improved sailing performance.

The interior was designed by Hong Kong’s Edge Design Institute who have taken the yacht’s various spaces and combined them with a well planned choice of materials and colour tones to give the yacht a new and innovative style.

Her sail plan, designed and built by the Perini Navi Group’s Mast Department, totals over 1,400 square meters and is handled through 11 reel captive winches. The main and mizzen masts measure 56.7 m and a 43 m respectively, and are in aluminium while the furling boom and spreaders are in carbon fibre.

Some of the main features on board are, the opening transom that reveals a beach club and swimming platform, the tender and catamaran storage under the fore deck in a tender well and the two large skylights above the main saloon. The below image shows how elegant she will look like under full sail.

The delivery date is scheduled for May.
