"Seahawk" Wins at Showboats Design Awards

"Seahawk", the first superyacht in the Perini Navi 60m (197ft) series, won the holistic design award that was presented during the Showboats Design Awards 2014 ceremony hosted by Boat International at the elegant Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, Austria last week.

The holistic design award is awarded yearly to the superyacht that represents "the finest example of a harmonious combination of interior and exterior design." The jury of experts saw that Seahawk had the perfect combination amongst spaces, functionality, practicality and innovation.

Seahawk has innovative hull lines to guarantee speed and performance while under sail. These are combined with even comfortable interior volumes that make this first superyacht in the new generation Perini Navi series really stand out. She has new and improved furlers designed by the Perini Navi Mast department and new winches that are faster to manoeuvre and more powerful than ever before on a Perini. The interiors, which are contemporary in style with maritime influence were designed by the French designer Christian Liaigre.

She is also a finalist in the Sailing Yacht 40m+ (131ft) size range category at the ninth edition of the Boat International World Superyacht Awards that will be held in Amsterdam on May 3rd. Another Perini "State of Grace", the first superyacht in the new Perini 40m Fast Cruising series is also a finalist, this time in the Sailing Yacht in 30m to 40m size range.

  1. the exterior look of the trawler into a modern day explorer. The design needed to incorporate modern exterior lines and curves to soften the harsh rugged appearance of the trawler.
