Perini Navi has presented its new Falcon Rig Gallery, a range of models from 56-92m inspired by the iconic 88m clipper Maltese Falcon that the Italian yard launched in 2006. A letter of intent has been signed for the 92m, while the other options are 56m, 64m, 72m and 80m.
The 92m model has carbon-fibre masts, a 2,400sqm sail area and an innovative arrangement dominated by a master suite that takes up the entire upper deck. Extensive use has been made of glass including for the main staircase which links all four decks, creating bright interiors.
Throughout the range, the cockpit and saloon are on the same level and flow into one another to create a single open-plan area, aft areas offer comfortable spaces that open onto a large beach area, while automation includes new-generation winches for simpler operation and easier handling.
Lamberto Tacoli, Chairman and CEO of Perini Navi, said: “Created in-house in Perini Navi and inspired by the iconic Maltese Falcon, the new Falcon Rig Gallery is a complete product range that hails a new opportunity for the sailing superyacht world, thanks to its cutting-edge new generation technologies, contemporary styling cues and unprecedented volumes.”
Perini Navi revealed that letters of intent were also signed for a 47m E-volution sailing yacht and a 74m motoryacht, and that the shipyard’s order book was worth €160 million. After delivering a 25m Eco-tender in August, the yard had seven yachts under construction: two motor (53m, 56m) and five sailing (47m, 60m and three 42m).
The yard also plans to boost its coverage of international markets by opening operational bases in Hong Kong and Monte Carlo.
Edoardo Tabacchi, Perini Navi’s majority shareholder, said: “We are here after two years of enormous transformation and major investment in R&D, in our staff and in upgrading our production sites. And we will continue investing over the coming years.”
