Ron Holland and the Perini Navi in-house architectural team are working together on this latest project, which has a launch date of spring 2008. The aluminum yacht will have a 233-foot aluminum mast with carbon-fiber spreaders, a carbon boom with in-boom furling, plus 12 captive winches to handle its 31,000 square feet of sail area.
The owner’s cabin will be spacious, extending across the full beam of 38 feet. There will also be three VIP staterooms and two smaller guest staterooms. In addition to the flying bridge, there will be a foredeck cockpit and the usual collection of tenders and personal watercraft at the stern. After the hull has been finished at Perini’s Turkish yard, it will be shipped to Perini’s Italian yard in Viareggio where the systems and interior will be installed.
