Adding to their fleet of 54 yachts on the water, Seahawkthe first yacht in the new Perini Navi 60m series, has been delivered to her owners.
She made an impressive debut at the Perini Navi Cup in August while still in the builder’s ownership her innovative hull lines and technological solutions, catching the attention of journalists like us who were invited to join the company in their exclusive regatta.
With improved speed and performance under sail along with even more ample and comfortable interior volumes she and he sister ships in build will set an even higher bench mark for the Italian super yacht builder.
With her sleek hull and superstructure in aluminium she manages to keep the gross tonnage under 500 GT and has a displacement of just 570 tons.
The variable keel length allows for a draught that varies from 4.30 to 12.30m.
The ketch, designed by the naval architects at Perini Navi in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, has a total sail plan area of 2.125 sqm featuring two aluminium masts of 62 and 52m.
The booms and spreaders are in carbon fibre as are the foils, head-stays and diagonals.
For the first time on a Perini Navi ketch, carbon fibre has also been used for the standing rigging.
On the foredeck a new generation of fully recessed furlers for the head sails has been created by the Perini Navi Mast Division which has also developed the new captive winches installed on board which increase manoeuvring power and speed.
The contemporary interiors, by the French designer Christian Liaigre, focus on three principal areas on Seahawk’s main deck- dining room, living room and office.
Each are planned around a staircase, an element that unites the three levels of the yacht.
The lower deck has four en suite guest cabins and a full-beam owner’s suite whose original layout features two double beds placed diagonally across from each other and sliding walls that can be closed to divide the suite into two for charter use.
