Perini Navi Turn The Hull Of New 70m

The aluminium hull number C.2227 is first superyacht in Perini Navi's new generation 70m (230ft) series and the second longest superyacht in the Perini Navi fleet after the 88m (288ft) clipper The Maltese Falcon, has just been turned at the Perini Istanbul-Yildiz shipyard in Turkey.

Franco Romani, Director of the Technical and Design Office at the Perini Navi was present at the turning operation, along with the whole staff of the shipyard. The momentous turning operation needed four cranes and only lasted for about 30 minutes, quite a short time for something so big don't you agree? Romani commented saying, "It was a thrill to see the lines and shapes that I had worked on finally come to life. It was a very special moment where I also was impressed not only by the hull's beauty but also by the high quality of the construction standards. I’m sure that this project is a real step forward in the evolution of design and technological innovation."

Her hull and superstructure are in aluminium which will make for a displacement of 912 tons and a gross tonnage of of approx. 850 grt. The keel will be retractable and varies from 4.54m to 11.7m. She will be a ketch with her two masts measuring 72m and 62m in height and will have a sail control system designed in house by Perini Navi. The whole project has be designed by the Perini Navi Technical and Design office with special consulting for the naval architecture and sail plan provided by the renowned Philippe Briand.

The interior layout was designed in house by Perini and decorated by the American design studio PH Design. It will have an open space main saloon that combines both living and dining areas. The lower deck will have four guest cabins, all en suite, and a full beam owner's suite with double baths and office and lounging areas. She is scheduled for delivery in 2015.
