[dropcap]P[/dropcap]erini Navi has announced the sale of the S/Y 47m E-volution, whose construction was begun on spec. Sold to a European owner with delivery scheduled for summer 2021, the yacht is currently in build at the Perini Navi yard in Tuzla, Istanbul, and is expected to arrive at the Viareggio shipyard next spring for completion.
After the S/Y 42m E-volution and the S/Y 42m E-volution GTS, this is the third vessel in the series sold by the yard in the last 15 months, and is a testament to the success of this modern and high performance new line.
“The S/Y 47m E-volution – comments Edoardo Tabacchi, Perini Navi Vice Chairman & Majority Shareholder – is a project we believed in strongly from the very start. This is why we accepted the challenge of starting construction on spec and we are very happy that the market has proved us right”.
“The sale of the S/Y 47m E-volution – continues Lamberto Tacoli, Perini Navi Chairman & CEO – is also a testament to the market’s appreciation for these contemporary new products which meld powerful performance under sail with a unique standard of comfort. Thanks to the E-volution Gallery, the Classic Gallery and the recently-presented Falcon Rig Gallery, Perini Navi can now offer the market a complete and unprecedented range of sailing yachts to meet clients’ differing needs”.
Built from aluminium with a carbon-fibre boom and rigging, this sloop has naval architecture created entirely in-house by the Perini Navi team and a 1,275 sqm sail surface. Performance and innovation lie at the very core of this project which includes a sail plan designed to optimise sail use and easy handling.
Perini Navi has evolved its classic keel design and this new version offers superior performance in addition to delivering a shallow draft to allow the yacht venture closer to the coast. A sophisticated swing system also guarantees optimal safety in the event of a collision.
The S/Y 47m E-volution’s exterior lines, penned by Perini Navi Style & Design Director Franco Romani, innovate tradition and are strikingly sleek and elegant, very much in line with the yard’s signature style. Like the other vessels in the E-volution series, the S/Y 47m introduces a whole new concept of space, while extensive glazing draws exceptional light into the interiors.
The transom has been radically innovated too and now opens to the sea through a large beach area with a generous sunbathing area. Accessing the water is easier than ever, thanks to a fold-down platform. The saloon on the main deck feels like an effortless extension of the cockpit and aft deck with which it creates an open-plan space of around 20 metres in length.
The S/Y 47m E-volution has three guest cabins in addition to the master suite aft and a versatile cabin which can convert to an office or a gym depending on the owner’s needs. A very large flybridge of around 90 sqm offers uniquely generous space for a craft of this type.
The yacht’s interior design will be developed by Perini Navi in collaboration with Marco Costanzi Architects, who is also responsbile for the interiors of the first S/Y 42m E-volution.
