Perini Navi Cup 2013 Overall

Sunshine and a light breeze helped the superyachts around the course on the final and decisive race of the fifth edition of the Perini Navi Cup. The event, organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda for superyachts produced buy the infamous Italian shipyard Perini Navi, saw victory go to the 50m (164ft) Silencio. Second place went to the 38m (124ft) performance cruising sloop P2 while the 53m (174ft) Parsifal IV claimed the final spot on the podium.

Silencio's owner was understandably delighted with the result of his first participation in the Cup: "We've got an amazing crew, an amazing spirit on board, thanks to the captain and the tactician Dawn Riley and all the crew we did a great job, but above all we had a lot of fun. Six months ago we had never raced and we were unlucky at the Bucket but now you are going to start hearing more about Silencio. This is the start of a love story between the Cup and us, I'm very proud of the crew."

The owner of P2 was pleased with his yacht's performance, commenting on his return to the docks: "It was a well-run and enjoyable regatta and I certainly appreciate Perini Navi's innovative spirit in building a fast, competitive boat."

The final results were as follows:
  1. Silencio
  2. P2
  3. Parsifal IV
  4. Zenji
  5. Tamsen
  6. Jasali II
  7. Panthalassa
