Perini Navi Group recently launched the 73-metre motoryacht Grace E at its La Spezia facility. She is the new flagship of the striking Picchiotti range.

The third superyacht of this range, Grace E is part of the group’s project for the re-launching of the historic Picchiotti brand name in the world of large motoryachts.

She sports the same hull and superstructure design elements as the rest of the Picchiotti Vitruvius series, which ensure efficient and easy handling and navigation. Grace E boasts an advanced diesel-electric propulsion system with two Azipod propellers. There are electronically activated propellers mounted on a movable support called a pod that allows the yacht to reach a cruising speed of 16.5 knots. She also comes equipped with a variety of tenders for the exploration of the surrounding environment.

Grace E is designed for autonomous and energy efficient cruising in both comfort and safety. Her interior is divided over five decks. The upper deck, or “wellness deck”, has an area that is entirely devoted to well-being with a gym, a sauna and an assortment of hydrotherapy equipment.

The interiors, designed by Remi Tessier, are elegant and very contemporary.

She is due for delivery towards the end of the year. 

While Grace E is the latest achievement from the Italian facilities, Perini Navi’s Turkish facility is constructing the first sailing yacht in their new 70-metre series and the third in their 60-metre series.
