The third time is the charm for Perini Navi. It has sold a 47M E-volution sailing superyacht, the largest of three contracted yachts in this new range. Since the hull started on spec, delivery will be relatively quick, in the summer of 2021.
As a reminder, the Perini Navi E-volution series features both sailing superyachts and tenders with hybrid propulsion. Buyers are not obligated to purchase a tender, though. The two previous contracts are for 138-footers, a 42M E-volution and 42M E-volution GTS.
This new yacht measures 154 feet. Both styling and naval architecture come from the shipyard’s in-house team, blending modern lines and strong performance. To that end, the sail area is 13,723 square feet (1,275 square meters), complemented by a 205-foot-high (62.5-meter-high) carbon fiber mast. Sloop-rigged, the 47M E-volution should be relatively simple to handle. When under power, with the system including a single Caterpillar diesel engine, the yacht should see 3,500 nautical miles at 10 knots.
The European owner has turned to Marco Costanzi Architects for interior design. Unfortunately, no details are available on the woods, stones, or other materials the yacht will show off. Regardless, Perini Navi does say that the 47M E-volution can have four staterooms, with an optional fifth converting from an office or gym. To take advantage of the 34’5” (10.5-meter) beam, the master suite sits aft below decks.
The master and other areas onboard make use of much larger glass panes than other Perini Navi deliveries so far. The main-deck saloon is one such area, although its biggest attraction is its space utilization. In fact, when the sliding doors to the aft deck are open, it becomes an extra-light and bright, 66-foot-long (20-meter-long) social space. Further attractive social spaces aboard the 47M E-volution include the beach club, accessible via a fold-down platform, and the 969-square-foot (90-square-meter) flying bridge.
Since Perini Navi started the hull on spec, this 47M E-volution should be ready for outfitting next spring. On a related note, another 42M E-volution is in build on spec and therefore available for sale.
