Fabio Boschi Appointed Chairman of Perini Navi


None of us is getting any yonger and that includes those great names at the very pinnacle of the superyacht industry.

Highlighting that fact, the Shareholders of Perini Navi have appointed Fabio Boschi to the post of Chairman of the Board of Directors, moving company founder Fabio Perini up one notch as Honorary Chairman.

Previously in charge of investment banking for a major Italian bank and, for a decade, the 43 year old Fabio Boschi, worked in strategic consulting and corporate finance with KPMG in Italy and the United Kingdom before becoming CEO of Perini Navi’s holding company Faper Group a post he has held since 2009.

Faper controls a group of companies that operate in paper machinery, real estate, and various other industries including the Perini Navi Group

With a fleet of 59 yachts on the water, 56 sailing yachts and 3 motor yachts, it is one of world leaders in the design and construction of large sailing yachts.

In 2007 the Group also began to build motor yachts with the brand name Picchiotti, thus re-launching the historic Picchiotti shipyard acquired in the early 1990’s.

The Group is made up of the Perini Navi shipyard in Viareggio, founded in the 1980’s by Fabio Perini who invented and developed a revolutionary automatic sail control system, and the Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia where the Group constructs its motor yachts and concentrates most of its refitting and repairing work.

The Perini Istanbul-Yildiz shipyard in Turkey is where the Group’s hulls and deck structures are produced. Additionally, Perini Navi USA is a commercial division of the Group through which owners of Perini Navi Group yachts can arrange charters and find brokerage services for both new and previously owned Perini Navi Group yachts.
