Currently under build at the Italian shipyard, the magnificent 70-metre sailing yacht SYBARIS has come out of hiding and is ready to show herself in full splendour to the yachting community. SYBARIS by Perini Navi, boasts innovative styling with powerful and dynamic lines, designed by Perini Navi Technical and Design office with naval architecture and sail plan optimisation from Philippe Briand.
Boasting hull and superstructure in aluminium, rig in carbon fibre with two Rondal masts of 72 and 62 metres in height, Sybaris hosts an impressive sail plan of more than 3000 square metres.
Her displacement is 927 tonnes and the gross registered tonnage is 870grt, making her the second largest Perini Navi sailing vessel constructed to date. Her centreboard keel has a variable draft going from 4,54 to 11,74 metres.
SYBARIS has also two carbon-fibre Cockwells tenders of 7 metres, one of which is a limo-tender, and are recessed below deck forward along with the 4,5-metre rescue tender.
Amongst her new and innovative features including an innovation on the sail handling system an the new electrical generation system. Both have been added to improve the overall operational efficiency and performance of the yacht under sail.
She is fitted with carbon fibre spars and Carbo-Link rigging by Rondal. She will also feature a Rig Load Monitoring System. The North Sail SDL wardrobe includes: reacher 1070m2 , Jib 632m2, main 770m2, mizzen 570m2. For Sail Handling Control, the sailing system boasts the latest generation of Perini Navi captive winches and furlers. Electric variable speed motors and furlers, duly synchronised and monitored by the Perini Navi Automated Sail Handling System, dramatically improve furling and deploy times while speeding the tacking and jibing. The reacher/blade winches pull a maximum load of 35 tonnes and and have a maximum line speed of 75 metre per minute. The reacher/blade furlers have a line speed of 75 m/min.
Variable Speed and DC Bus Electrical Generation System A first aboard a Perini Navi Sailing Yacht, 2 Variable Speed Generators supply electrical power via a DC Bus to the vessel’s main electrical grid with the potential to store excess power in Class-Approved lithium polymer batteries.
The exceptional advantage of Silent Running modes together with Peak and Trough Shaving during generator operations allow for unparalleled efficiency as well as reduced emissions.
The Class-Approved lithium polymer batteries located in the vessel bilges – in an easily accessible location for maintenance and replacement – provide a total power of 136 kW/h with a recharge time of less than 1 hour. Furthermore power distribution via a DC Bus allows for renewable energy sources or increased battery capacity to be added as additional generating capacity at a later date.
System advantages includes:
• No energy waste
• Lower fuel consumptions and lower CO2 emissions (-25%)
• Higher system quality
• Lower maintenance
• Lower weight
• Easier delivery of high quality and clean DC electrical power (Elimination of AC filters)
Compact permanent magnet generator-ends allow for higher efficiency and longer life cycle. As a further development of the electrical distribution system, Perini Navi engineers have worked hard at rationalizing the system architecture to reduce the lengths of wiring runs. With some 100+ km of cable laid in a typical vessel of this size, this efficiency is of great importance.
Noise and Vibration Reduction
One of the most important contributors to the great results in the reduction of noise and vibration levels is achieved by the adoption of double mounted engine-gearbox sets. Each engine-gearbox set it elastically mounted to a high mass vibration damping cradle which is then elastically mounted to the hull superstructure as a whole set.
The extensive main deck boasts a large 30-metre long guest area, with a 4-metre wide sliding door. This allows for an easy flow between the vast cockpit and the main saloon. The saloon boasts fabulous panoramic views thanks to the newly designed windows.
The 18-metre long fly bridge offers a fantastic outdoor area for guests to unwind, socialise or sunbathe.
Interiors of SYBARIS were designed by PH Design and feature custom-designed furniture and an overall luxurious contemporary allure with a use of top-quality materials and accessories.
