The Perini Navi Group


Our hosts for the 2015 edition of the Perini Navi Cup were the Perini Navi Group without whose generosity we would not have been able to attend and report on the events as they unfold.

This is a public thank you to the entire Perini Navi family for making such a wonderful event run so smoothly and thank you again for inviting us.

With a fleet of 59 yachts on the water, 56 sailing yachts and 3 motor yachts, the Perini Navi Group is the world leader 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 com- mercial 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.
