The Perini Navi Group has launched Perseus³, the second yacht in their new generation 60m series. This series has important innovations in hull lines and on board technology.
Perseus³, designed by Perini Navi naval architects in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, has a Perini Navi sail control system and a lifting keel with a draft that varies from 4.30 to 12.30m. The 75m mast and 23m long boom are constructed in carbon fibre as is her standing rigging. Perseus³ is also the first Perini Navi yacht to have a carbon fibre bowsprit.
The bowsprit was an owner’s request and will allow for fast sail changes and a larger sail plan. The impressive sail set includes two gennakers, one Code 0, one reacher, one blade, one spinnaker stay sail, one working jib and an imposing main sail for a combined area of 10.000 square meters.
The Perseus³ has an innovative deck layout with six winches for fast tacking and easy handling of halyards and lines. The jib is new generation maneuvered via new generation captive winches that can reel in 35 tons at over 110m per minute.
The sloop has two helms rudders for top performance and agile maneuvering, with a sail plan of 10,000 square meters. The aluminum hull and superstructure were constructed at the Perini Navi-Yildiz shipyard in Turkey and make for a GT of less than 500 tons and an optimised displacement of circa 570 tons.
The interiors were designed in house by Perini architects and can accommodate twelve passengers in five cabins, one of which has sliding beds. The owner’s suite is full beam and can be divided by a removable wall. Two 6.20 custom tenders, two opening beach platforms and an infinity pool on the fore deck compliment the exterior layout.
A third yacht in this 60m series is scheduled to be delivered in 2015.
