Perini Navi have just stepped and launched Seahawk, the first superyacht in their new generation 60m (197ft) series at their yard in Viareggio. Seahawk has new innovative hull lines designed by the New Zealand designer Ron Holland and modern technology that will enhance her speed and performance through the water.
To enhance her performance even more her two aluminium masts measuring 62m (203ft) and 52m (170ft) have been fitted with a carbon rigging package from Future Fibres. This carbon package is some of the largest carbon rigging produced by Future Fibres to date and could be the start of a long relationship between the two companies.
On the foredeck she has new generation of furlers that are fully recessed for the furling of the head sails and have been created in-house by the Mast Division of Perini Navi which have also developed the new captive winches installed on board, increasing the manoeuvring speed.
Her contemporary interior has been designed by the famous French designer Christian Liaigre. The new series is moving along quickly at the Perini yard in Viareggio as they are currently working on their second. C.2218 is going to be a 60m (197ft) sloop with a carbon fibre mast measuring 75m (246ft), and is scheduled for delivery in 2014. The third in the series C.2232 will be another ketch just like Seahawk and will be delivered in 2015.
The order books are looking pretty full for the Perini Navi Group.
