Peri Yachts have announced that they are the proud winner of the World Yacht Trophies Award 2011 for “Best Design” and “Most Innovative” Fly bridge over 24 meters with the new high-tech Peri 41T motor yacht Bibich Too, the flagship and crowning glory of the Peri range.
The awards were presented at the Gala Dinner organized by Lux Media group during the 2011 Cannes International Boat Show at the famous Hotel Carlton Intercontinental beach terrace, attended by important personalities of the international yachting world. Selcuk Kocak, designer of the Peri 41T and head of Scaro Design received the awards in the name of the shipyard.
Since entering the superyacht arena in 2005, Peri Yachts have gone from strength to strength. The yachts, typified by their sleek racy lines and dramatically spacious decks and interiors, combined with a fanatical attention to detail, express sophisticated modern luxury. Despite their low-lying, aerodynamic lines, Peri’s high-tech composite superyachts are used to enjoying a high profile at Cannes. Peri has already twice carried off the prestigious “World Yacht Trophies” award for “Best interior decoration for flybridge yachts over 24 metres”, for its 29 metre and 37 metre models in previous years.
The 41T superyacht was conceived by a formidable team. Scaro Design, Istanbul’s award-winning design group, created her external lines and her interior, while the UK’s renowned Dixon Yacht Design engineered her V planing hull. The 41T is powered by twin MTU 12V4000 M93L 3,450hp engines to reach a top speed of 23 knots and has a range of 1,250 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 17 knots.
Meanwhile, the Peri shipyard in Antalya has never been busier. There are five of the company’s high-performance, composite superyachts under construction: the second Peri 41T yacht, sistership of the award winning Peri 41T superyacht Bibich Too, will be finished by next year, as will three new examples of the 29-metre, the award-winning entry-level line. Furthermore, the latest 37-metre, also an award-winner and darling of the Côte d’Azur, has just been completed and is offered for sale.
