Perini Navi Deliver 60m Seahawk

The Perini Navi Group has just delivered "Seahawk", the first superyacht in their new generation of 60m (197ft) sailing yachts. With innovative hull lines and technological solutions, these superyachts guarantee speed and performance under sail along with even more volume and comfortable interior.

Seahawk has a sleek hull and superstructure in aluminium with a gross tonnage of under 500 GT and a displacement of 570 tons. The variable keel length allows for a draught that goes from 4.30 to 12.30m. The ketch, designed by the naval architects at Perini Navi in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, has a total sail plan area of 2.125 sqm featuring two aluminium masts of 62 and 52m. The booms and spreaders are in carbon fibre as are the foils, head-stays and diagonals. And, for the first time on a Perini Navi ketch, carbon fibre has also been used for the standing rigging. On the foredeck a new generation of fully recessed furlers for the head sails has been created by the Perini Navi Mast Division which has also developed the new captive winches installed onboard which increase manoeuvring power and speed.

The interiors, that have been designed by the French designer Christian Liaigre, have an extremely elegant contemporary look with traditional maritime elements. The three principal areas on Seahawk’s main deck, dining room, living room and office are planned around a staircase, an element that unites the three levels. The lower deck has four en suite guest cabins and a full-beam owner’s suite which features two double beds placed diagonally across from each other and sliding walls that can be closed to divide the suite into two for charter use.
