The Arrival of Hull C.2227

Project C.2227, the first in the new generation Perini Navi 70m (230ft) series has arrived in the Perini yard in La Spezia. SY C.2227 is the second largest superyacht in the Perini Navi fleet after the famous 88m (288ft) clipper, The Maltese Falcon.

Her aluminium hull and superstructure were constructed at Perini's Yildiz facility in Tuzla, Turkey. The fitting and furnishing will be done at the Group's Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia where the she will also be delivered in 2015. She has been designed in house by the Perini Navi Technical and Design office with naval architecture consultation from Philippe Briand so you already know she's sure to have plenty of power and speed.

Her hull and superstructure will have a displacement of 912 tons and a gross tonnage of 850GT. The lifting keel is centralised and has a new shape that will give her speed and stability through the water. Her draft ranges from 4.54m (15ft) to 11.7m (38ft). She will have an innovative Perini Navi sail control system and her carbon fibre masts will measure 72m (236ft) and 62m (203ft).

Her interior will include a large open main saloon/gallery with living and dining areas. The lower deck will include four en suite guest cabins and a full beam owner's suite with his and hers bathrooms, an office and living areas as well as a VIP suite.

"The joy of seeing our new yachts is constantly increasing" says Franco Romani, Director of the Perini Navi Group's Technical and Design Office. "The lines of the new 70m are the result of working in synergy with the owner who has allowed us to preserve unmistakeable Perini Navi style while adding a modern twist. The owner's cultural background and his love for art have given the yacht an innovative touch. Briand's consultation on naval architecture and the sail plan have also contributed to assure performance."
