Perini Navi signs two new contracts
Published: Monday, 18 July 2011
The Perini Navi Group has launched a new series of 60 metre sailing yachts and has already signed two sales contracts for a total value of more than 70 million Euro. The two yachts – a ketch and a sloop – will be delivered in 2013 and 2014 respectively. The new line of 60 metre sailing yachts – created and designed by the Perini Navi Group – represents the natural evolution of the successful 56 metre series that has already seen ten yachts launched.
The Perini Navi Group closed the 2010 fiscal year with an order portfolio of 126 million Euro, while by June 2011, thanks to the sales of these two new yachts, the volume is currently of 140 million spread over seven yachts. This represents a year-on-year growth of 10.6% in value of production from 2009, according to the firm.
In the year 2010, Perini Navi launched four yachts – three sailing yachts and one motor yacht. These were the 56-metre ketches Panthalassa and Melek, the 45-metre sloop Fivea, and Exuma, the revolutionary 50-metre Picchiotti from the Vitruvius® series motor yacht, the first motor yacht produced by the Perini Navi Group. In August 2011, the second Picchiotti motor yacht of the Vitruvius® series, a 55 metre, will be delivered.
