Perini Navi 125ft (2 yachts)

Built in aluminium sealium by Perini Navi. The first Perini Navi 125ft, P2 was launched in June 2008. The second yacht will be launched in 2015.

For Philippe Briand and Perini Navi, this yacht is the first of a line of very fast sailing yachts. Her American owner insisted on an outstanding performance. She is of medium to light displacement at less than 140 tons. Waterline length has been stretched to the maximum, as her bow is almost vertical. For upwind sailing, she has a sail plan with a high aspect ratio. This version has a lifting keel. The boat’s interiors are designed by Perini Navi, and include a very spacious master suite, two to four guest cabins (depending on the version) and a spacious deck saloon. The aesthetic roof design accentuates the yacht’s dynamic character. It houses an extremely spacious and well sheltered cockpit. The vast aft deck houses a 5 m tender.

Awards

P2 received a number of awards in 2009, including 3 World Superyacht Awards.

Best sail boat 30 – 40 m”, “Best styling” and “Best sail boat 2009 overall” in May. She was also awarded the Showboats International Award for “Best sail boat under 45m” in October.

After a second place at the St Barth Bucket Regatta in March 2009, she won the Newport Regatta Bucket in July 2009.
