Perini Navi 47-M: The making of a modern classic

An evolution of the yard’s 47m sloop, this brand-new yacht heralds a new era for Perini Navi

Currently in build and ready for delivery to her new Owner by late 2024, the futuristic Perini Navi 47-M is a fast displacement sloop, which comes with a new generation of hull lines that will improve both comfort and performance under sails.

The Perini Navi 47-M is a redesign of the pedigree yard’s 47-metre sloop but with some innovative new features, including a carbon fibre mast, a newly engineered keel, and short-handed operation capabilities – making her suitable for both round-the-world sailing and regatta racing.

Her four-cabin layout with a full-beam Owner’s cabin that comes with a convertible studio offers flexible accommodation and makes her a perfect platform for both family cruising and charter use.

This, combined with her easy access to the sea – The Perini Navi 47-M has a draft of just 3.9m when the keel is up – and the trustworthiness of the Perini Navi brand, make her a hugely appealing yacht to Owners who want a brand-new yacht with a short delivery turnaround and the possibility to add their own mark.

The Italian Sea Group, who acquired the build when it bought Perini Navi in late 2021, says: “With her wide-open stern and a generous flybridge, which is unique for a yacht of this size, the Perini Navi 47-M offers an ideal opportunity for Buyers moving from motor yachts to sailing yachts who don’t wish to compromise on volume.”

The process

The original contract for the Perini Navi 47-M was terminated prior to The Italian Sea Group’s purchase of the yard, but The Italian Sea Group invested in the project and decided to keep building the yacht on spec.

The design of both the exteriors and the hull lines are by Perini Navi’s in-house team, drawing on the expertise they have built up over the past 30 years.

The design brief was to custom design a sloop rig Panamax yacht with modern lines that would emphasise the connection between the inside and outside with extensive glazing and up-to-date naval architecture. Finally, it was to be one of the largest flybridges in its category.

The Italian Sea Group says: “Edmiston was appointed as our exclusive partner due to the team’s great and unparalleled experience in the market. Their sales track record in the brokerage sailing market – especially in the Perini Navi fleet – is unprecedented.”

Edmiston is competent and active in every single market region and its marketing and communication coverage is second to none. Having Bruce Brakenhoff as the front man in this operation shows a clear link to the history and success of Perini Navi since the very beginning.

The result

The Perini Navi 47-M heralds a new era for the pedigree brand. The acquisition by The Italian Sea Group has elevated the Perini Navi brand and Owners can look forward to seeing improved comfort and an even higher quality of execution across its fleet.

The new Owner of the Perini Navi 47-M will be able to choose the interior layout and style of the yacht, and full flexibility will be given in choosing accessories.  They will be able to live the experience of being the Owner of one of a new generation of Perini Navis throughout the build.

The Italian Sea Group says: “This is the sole opportunity in the current market to get delivery of a brand-new sailing yacht in such a short time, so don’t let your clients miss out.
