Perini Navi Launch 40m "State of Grace"

Perini Navi have just celebrated the  launching of 'State of Grace' their first yacht in their 40m (131ft) fast cruising series at their yard in Istanbul. Following the 88m (289ft) clipper The Maltese Falcon, she is the second superyacht to be constructed entirely at their yard in Istanbul.

State of Grace was designed in house by Perini Navi naval architects in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland. Both her hull and superstructure were constructed in aluminium, with just 220 tons displacement she is sure to perform brilliantly in all sailing conditions. Watch out superyacht Rolex regatta.

Her 1,192 sq m sail plan can be handled by just one person thanks to an innovative sail control system designed by Perini Navi and built by their Mast Division. She has a 50m (164ft) mast, furling boom and standing rigging all made with carbon fibre materials.

The main saloon spans over two levels and has a comfortable dining room and a spacious living area. Her four cabins, including a full beam owners suite with a gym, have innovative layouts and can accommodate up to nine guests.

The yard in Istanbul is currently working on the first yacht in the 70m (230ft) series, scheduled for 2015, while the third yacht in the 60m (197ft) series could be ready in the next two years.
