Perini Navi Group, world leader in the construction and design of large sailing and motor yachts, has proudly announced today the launch of their 10th vessel in the 56 metre series, the sailing yacht Fidelis.  Superyacht Fidelis is the 51st yacht in the groups fleet.

The launching will be strictly private and will be held Saturday April 16th at the Perini Navi shipyard in Viareggio.

Designed by the Perini Navi Group’s Technical and Design Department in collaboration with the New Zealand yacht designer, Ron Holland, S/Y Fidelis has a hull and superstructure in aluminium with an optimised displacement of 545 tons and a tonnage of 497 tons.

The ketch sail plan, designed and engineered by Perini Navi’s Mast Division measures 1,500 square meters. Both the main and the mizzen masts are in aluminium and are respectively 58.37 and 47.97 meters high. The booms are both in carbon fibre and have in-boom furling systems.

Fidelis yacht has especially ample areas for enjoying life on deck with two cockpits, one fore, one aft, which allow owners and guests to enjoy generously comfortable outdoor spaces.

The fore cockpit is arranged around the main mast and has two “L” shaped couches that can seat up to twelve and two removable tables. This area also has a waxed canvas awning for protection from the sun and built-in lighting for evening enjoyment.

The aft cockpit has a well-protected dining area with a table for twelve and a lounging area with three couches, two armchairs and a coffee table. There is also a guest head and a semi-circular staircase, protected and embellished by a custom-built glass wall, that leads up to the flying bridge. This bridge area has been completely re-modeled compared to her sister ships in that it has a wide sunning and lounging area aft with two central seats from which to enjoy the view, a dining area and the steering stations with sail and engine controls.

Sailing Yacht Fidelis’ interiors were designed in-house by Perini Navi’s architects and have a contemporary, refined style with simple, clean lines combined with the use of materials such as stained walnut, wenge, parchment, maple, teak, steel, marble and leather.

The main saloon, designed as a light-filled open space, is divided into two areas by an unusual central element that houses both the steel and wenge staircase that leads to the lower deck and two elegant sliding glass doors that separate the living and dining areas.

Fidelis’ lower deck has a large, full-beam stateroom with a double bed at the center, an office starboard and a couch port. The four guest cabins all have queen-sized beds and two of these also have retractable pullman berths and wide couches that can become beds.

Perini Navi’s first 56 mt sailing yacht Burrasca, was launched in 2003 and since then she has been joined by sister yachts Santa Maria (now Zenji), Rosehearty, Selene, Salute, Silvana, charter yacht Asahi (formerly Riela), yacht Panthalassa and Melek.
