The Perini Navi superyacht sloop Fivea was launched yesterday during a private ceremony
A selected group of people gathered at the Picchiotti site for the launch of the 48th yacht in the Italian yard’s history and the third in its 45 metre (148 ft) series created by Ron Holland.
All three yachts in the 45 metre series have a steel hull with fine entries, however there are also differences among all of them. The superyacht launched in 2007 under the name Helios, includes a sunbathing area aft on the flying bridge and helm forward. The 2006 launched superyacht Heritage, for example does not have the sunning spot, so her twin helms are aft.
On the other hand the latest superyacht of this series FIVEA is modified in two ways. First, she contains twin Caterpillar C18 ACERTs in her engine room. Heritage and Helios both have a single Caterpillar C32 diesel engine. In addition, Fivea’s superstructure has a few more modern touches, for looks and aerodynamics.
The sail area, encompassing nearly 1,200 square meters (almost 13,000 square feet) is impressive, as is the 51-meter-high (167-foot-high) mast. Perini Navi made the seven captive reel winches controlling the sail and the electric furlers for the in-boom furling system for the main sail. Fivea is expected to achieve a 13-knot cruise speed. Scaled back to 10½ knots, she should see a range of 4,000 nautical miles.
Fivea will keep her owner and guest comfortable, given her 9.73 metre beam, as well as her traditional interior decor created in-house. Although we don’t know yet the exact number of the stateroom sand capacity of this wonderful superyacht sloop, the yachts Heritage and Helios can accommodated up to 12 people.
Among other statements, the yard did state that yacht Fivea‘s staterooms are set up in a flexible arrangement, permitting for example use as lounges adjacent to another stateroom.
