Italian Super Yacht Builder Gains Two Orders

Perini Navi tops off bumper year with two new orders

Claiming to have weathered the recession and posting a turnover for the year 2008 of 94 million Euros with pre-tax profits of 7 million Euros Perini Navi has added cream to the pudding by announcing it has signed orders for two new superyachts.

Among the orders are the third in the Picchiotti-Vitruvius series designed by Philippe Briand with this one being 73.3 metres overall for completion in 2013. The first two yachts in the series of 50 and 55m, are already currently under construction. The second new order is for 50 m sailing yacht, designed by Perini Navi in collaboration with Ron Holland, and is planned for delivery in 2012

The new yachts, one for the Far East and another for the American market, means the builder now has seven superyachts under construction for delivery in the next few years.
