The Perini Navi Group will inaugurate the nautical New Year by presenting Seahawk, the first sailing yacht in their new generation 60m line, and State of Grace, the first sailing yacht in their new 40m line, in a world premiere at the 23rd edition of the Monaco Yacht Show that will be held from the 25th to the 28th of September, 2013.
The 60m Seahawk is an important innovation both in project lines and in on board technology that guarantees speed, performance comfort and abundant space. Her sleek hull lines and hull and superstructure in aluminium allow for a gross tonnage of less than 500 GT and an optimized displacement of 570 tons. This ketch, designed by Perini Navi naval architects in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, has a total sail plan of 2.125 square meters mounted on main and mizzen masts that are 62 and 52m high respectively. Her boom, spreaders, headsail stay foils, diagonals and standing rigging are all in carbon fibre. A new generation of headsail furlers, designed and created by the Perini Navi Mast Department, have been mounted flush to the deck. The winches also are new generation for greater power and faster manoeuvring speed. Her interiors have been designed by the French designer Christian Liaigre who has created a refined and contemporary ambience with strong marine accents aboard Seahawk.
The 40m State of Grace has also been designed by Perini Navi in collaboration with Ron Holland. Her sleek hull lines and hull and superstructure in aluminium make for a displacement of 220 tons which will assure brilliant sailing performance in all sea states. Add to this the comfort, build quality and seaworthiness that have always distinguished Perini Navi sailing yachts.
Her sail plan counts 1.192 square metres and is mounted on a 50m mast equipped with a furling boom and standing rigging, both of which are in the most innovative carbon fibres. The fast cruiser State of Grace has laminated sails for top sailing performance. Her interiors have a pared down classical style enriched with contemporary design accents. Her interiors were designed by Perini Navi architects.
