Perini Navi Debuts in Singapore with 50m "Exuma"

The Perini Navi Group will be present for the first time at the Singapore Yacht Show with their 50m (164ft) M/Y Exuma, the first Picchiotti megayacht from their Vitruvius series. The Yacht Show, which is in its fourth year will be held from April 10th to 13th at the ONE 15 Marina Club, Sentosa Cove in Singapore.

Exuma, was created through a collaboration between the Perini Navi Group, Vitruvius Ltd and French naval architect Philippe Briand. She was designed for maximum efficiency and for navigating in the globe to uncover the earths best kept secrets. Her sleek aluminium hull allows for a GT of 497 tons and a full load displacement of 400 tons. Her draft is just 2.3m so that she can enter shallow waters and her range is 6,500nm at 12kts.

Since her delivery in 2010, Exuma has embarked on a round the world tour leaving her Mediterranean home port, crossing the Atlantic and touring the Caribbean and from there off to the Pacific Ocean where to date she has navigated for approximately 44,444 nautical miles.

She is widely recognised as one of the best megayachts of her time and has won a variety of international awards such as motor yacht of the Year and Best Displacement motor yacht below 500 GT. She has also been awarded the Rina Green plus Platinum certification, considered to be the highest recognition for respect of the environment. The list goes on as she also won most innovative yacht of the Year at the 2010 World Yacht Trophy and "Asia-based Charter Yacht of the Year 2012" at the Asia Pacific Awards 2012. Now that is a world class resume!
