The Perini Navi Group, world leaders in the design and construction of large-sized sailing and motor yachts, has announced the launching of a 50 m ketch, Enterprise, the second vessel in their new 50 m aluminium hulled series.
Enterprise is scheduled for delivery in May.
S/Y Enterprise, designed by the naval architects at Perini Navi in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, has an aluminium hull with sleek and aggressive lines which, combined with a longer waterline and strongly vertical appendages, make for improved sailing performance.
The ketch sail plan, designed and built by the Perini Navi Group’s Mast Department, totals over 1,400 square meters and is handled through 11 reel captive winches. The main and mizzen masts measure 56.7 m and a 43 m respectively, and are in aluminium while the furling boom and spreaders are in carbon fibre.
The hull has an opening transom that becomes an ample beach platform. The 19’ main tender is housed under the fore deck in a flush tender well that also houses a catamaran that can be mounted for day sailing. The superstructure has been completely redesigned with two large skylights.
The interior design is by Hong Kong’s Edge Design Institute and has a brand new conception for the spaces. Flexibility in the use and division of the yacht’s various spaces combined with a well-planned choice of materials and colour tones give this yacht an absolutely new and innovative style.
