Italian yard Perini Navi has announced the sale of its 42-metre (138.5-foot) hybrid sailing yacht in its E-volution line, representing a “fresh departure” for the shipyard.
Sold to an Italian owner, the new vessel was first announced at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show. The in-house styled yacht is built entirely from aluminium, with naval architecture by the Reichel-Pugh studio. The yacht’s exterior styling comes from Perini Navi’s head of design Franco Romani.
The innovative yacht’s standout features include a lifting keel, powerful sail plan, carbon fibre rig and sail drum storage, along with large, open-air deck spaces. The interior “oozes airiness and light”, according Perini Navi.
The yacht is the first unit from Perini Navi’s E-volution line, with the ‘E’ standing for electric. She features an eco-friendly hybrid propulsion system that combines a main diesel engine and an electric motor as part of the shipyard’s commitment to environmental sustainability.
The diesel-electric operation allows for quiet cruising and a range of 3,200 nautical miles at 10 knots thanks to a total fuel capacity of 20,000 litres.
Moving inside, she will boast accommodation for up to 10 guests with a master suite aft, two guest cabins and a fourth cabin forward of the engine room. The interior model has been fitted with an extra bonus room that can be used as either a cinema or even a fifth cabin.
The edgy design includes a folding transom door, which provides a sea-level alcove with staircase access on both sides. There is a flexible foredeck located forward with a clean, modern, Japanese-style dining pit.
Perini Navi chief executive Lamberto Tacoli stated, “The quality, style and performance of our ships captivate and satisfy even the most knowledgeable and demanding customers.
“The 42-metre E-volution forms part of a new range of products that we’ve been working on over the last year and is reporting notable market success.”
