Perini Navi Launch 2nd 60m Sloop "Perseus3"


The Perini Navi Group have launched "Perseus3" the second superyacht in their new generation 60m (197ft) series, at their Viareggio shipyard. This series has sleek innovative hull lines and on board technology.

Perseus3 is designed by Perini Navi naval architects in collaboration with legendary New Zealander Ron Holland. She has a Perini Navi sail control system and a lifting keel whose draft varies from 4.30m to 12.30m. Her 75m (246ft) mast and 23m boom are in carbon fibre as well as her standing rigging. She is also the first Perini Navi superyacht to have a carbon fibre bowsprit. The bowsprit was a request of the owner's that will allow for fast sail changes and a larger sail plan. The impressive sail set includes: 2 Gennakers, 1 Code 0, 1 Reacher, 1 Blade, 1 Spinnaker Stay Sail, 1 working Jib and an imposing Main Sail for a combined area of 10.000 sqm.

She has an innovative deck layout with six winches for fast tacking and easy handling of halyards and lines. The jib is manoeuvred using the newest generation of captive winches with a pulling load of 35t and a speed of 110m per minute. She also has two rudders for top performance and agile manoeuvring. It looks like she is set up for some serious racing on the superyacht circuit.

Her hull and superstructure are built in aluminium were constructed at the Perini Navi Yildiz shipyard in Turkey and give her less than 500 GT and a displacement of 570 tons. Her interiors were designed in house by Perini architects and can accommodate twelve guests in five cabins, one of which has sliding beds. The owner's suite is full beam and can be divided by a removable wall. Some of her other features include two 6.20m carbon fibre custom tenders, two opening beach platforms and an infinity pool on the fore deck.

The third superyacht in this series is scheduled to be delivered in 2015.
