Perini Navi Deliver 52nd Superyacht 'Enterprise'

This week Perini Navi handed the keys over to the owner of the 50m (164ft) ketch Enterprise. She was launched on the 2nd of April this year where she became Perini's 52nd Superyacht to join their ever expanding fleet of yachts. She was designed by Perini Navi’s in house naval architects in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland who lives in West Cork, Ireland.

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

The hull has an aft opening that becomes a beach platform, where beach clubs are vastly becoming part of every Superyacht design. The 19ft main tender is stored under the fore deck in a flush tender well that also stores a catamaran that can be quickly rigged for day sailing. The superstructure has been completely redesigned with two large skylights in the roof.
