[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he hull of S/Y 42m GTS, the second vessel in the E-volution Gallery, has arrived in Viareggio from the Perini Navi yard in Tuzla, Turkey, for fitting.
Developed on the same platform as the first 42m E-volution, this second vessel is built from a combination of lightweight aluminium and carbon-fibre and the propulsion system has been optimised to deliver superior performances to meet the needs of her owner. This yacht is crafted to maximise performance under sail while guaranteeing stability and comfort on long passages.
The S/Y 42m E-volution GTS has a Panamax mast (62.5m), square top mainsail and a 4m bowsprit to accentuate the power of her 1,250 sqm sail area. The keel has a maximum draught of 7.4m.
Designed in-house by Perini Navi’s Style & Design Director Franco Romani, and by Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design, this particular vessel pairs the E-volution series’ features, clean lines, generous spaces and a large stern, with a sleeker, sportier deckhouse profile.
The interior design will be created by GCA of Barcelona. Delivery is scheduled for spring 2021.
“It is always a huge pleasure to see a new yacht,” comments Perini Navi Chairman & CEO Lamberto Tacoli. “This second S/Y 42m E-volution, which is also the first GTS version in the series, is the perfect symbiosis of comfort and performance, and we are receiving a very positive response to it. Thanks to the E-volution, Classic and Falcon Rig galleries, we now finally have a complete range of sailing yachts capable of meeting our clients’ different requirements”.
The yard’s production plans currently include seven yachts: five are sailing and two motor yachts.
