Italian shipyard, Perini Navi has launched the 38m sloop yacht, C.2130, known as Dahlak.
Launched on 5th March, the yacht is the sister ship to the P2 sailing yacht, launched in 2008. Dahlak features a 51.4m carbon fibre mast, with a 14m furling boom, as well as composite standing rigging for a sail plan surface area of over 1,870sqm.
Burak Akgul, managing director of sales, marketing and design at Perini Navi commented, “The owner was insistent that Dahlak is a family boat in every sense of the word. By that he meant not only his own family, but also the Perini Navi family.”
With the same rig configuration and basic naval architecture as sister P2, Dahlak’s hull lines have been designed by Philippe Briand and were entirely built at Perini Navi Group’s Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia, Italy. The yacht is designed for “fast and easy sailing”, and is constructed entirely of Sealium aluminium alloy.
Dahlak also offers “several technical innovations”, according to the brand, “that illustrate Perini Navi’s commitment to providing owners with the latest technology that enhances performance, sail handling and onboard comfort, including electric captive winches engineered in-house and a Lithium polymer battery system for silent running.”
