The Italian Perini Navi Group, the world-known large sailing and motor yachts builder, is happy to announce the delivery of the 45m sailing yacht Clan VIII, the result of a partnership between Perini Navi’s Design Team and Ron Holland and the fourth of the steel-hulled 45-metre series. Clan VIII superyacht was launched on September 6th.
Perini Navi luxury yacht Clan VIII features all the hallmarks of Perini Navi yachts, including a spacious flybridge and the opening stern which reveals a structural staircase that descends to a 7m2 swimming platform which complements a lateral opening shell door on the yacht’s port side.
The Perini Navi-built mast rises 52 metres above the waterline and the super yacht Clan VIII carries an upwind sail area of almost 900 m2. The centreboard affords a draft of 3.9 m with the board up to 8.75 m down and in conjunction with her efficient appendages – including a rudder with a relatively high aspect ratio – and large sail area provides the best possible sailing performance for this ocean cruising yacht boasting a particularly large internal volume.
The midship machinery space includes a single Caterpillar C32 820kW diesel main engine, which gives Clan VIII yacht a 13.5 knot speed under power.
The interior of the sailing yacht Clan VIII, designed in-house by the Perini Navi Design Department, is inspired by a classical yet contemporary allure where ebony and teak combine to create a truly elegant marine ambiance, thanks to the unmatched quality of the execution.
The delivery of the 53rd yacht in the fleet confirms the continued strength of the Perini Navi Group which, in 2011, has also delivered the 10th 56-metre sailing yacht Fidelis and the 55m motor yacht Galileo G, the second Vitruvius® series yacht built by the Picchiotti brand.
Earlier this summer, two contracts for a total value of over 70 million Euro were signed – one for a sloop and one for a ketch from their new line of 60 metre yachts, further expanding the production plan of the group that today includes 7 yachts: one 50m sailing yacht (to be delivered in 2012); one 40m sailing yacht (to be delivered in 2012); one 38m
sailing yacht from the Racing Line (to be delivered in 2013); one 73m motor yacht (to be delivered in 2013); one 60m ketch (to be delivered in 2013); one 60m sloop (to be delivered in 2014) and another 60m ketch (to be delivered in 2014).
