Welcome some of the world’s largest yachts to the Mediterranean. They gather next week, and they will race off the coast of Sardinia. It is the fourth edition of the Perini Navi Cup.
The race is limited exclusively to Perini Navi sailing yachts. Nineteen yachts participate in three days of racing. It takes place in beautiful Porto Cervo, Sardinia, September 1 to 4.
Regatta organizer is the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. Major sponsors include international brands, for instance, Audi, Champagne Pommery, and Rolex.
The fleet gathering in the waters of Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda will range from the 33.5m sloop Heritage M to the 88m sail clipper THE MALTESE FALCON. Some of the Perini Navi Group’s most recently launched yachts, including the 2011 56m ketch sail yacht FIDELIS, will also be present.
Perini Navi has a fleet of 51 yachts on the water. They are the world leader in the design and construction of large sailing yachts. The Group includes the Perini shipyard in Viareggio, the Picchiotti yard in La Spezia, and the Perini Istanbul shipyard in Yildiz, Turkey.

Every few weeks we like to glimpse into the future of sustainable yacht design. We’ve profiled designers who tout a future of green superyachts and builders who hope to lead the way with zero-carbon emission mega yacht charter vessels.
German grad student, Stefanie Behringer, is getting notice. Stefanie designed a hybrid propulsion trimaran motorboat. It is powered by diesel and electric jet skis. Behringer’s creation, if it makes it off the drawing board, would be the ultimate James Bond boat. The sleek, futuristic design is a real head-turner! The green-designed vessel is simple and efficient. A jet ski attaches to each side of the hull. While the jet skis are electric-powered, the 49 foot yacht is also powered by two Audi turbo-charged diesel engines. Audi’s concept design team assisted Behringer on the project.
The motoryacht is designed to cruise above 20 knots, with a top end of nearly 30 knots. The vessel can be operated using just the jet skis for a 100-horsepower emission-free cruise. At high speeds, the diesel engines will kick in as well as recharge the jet skis’ batteries.
Twelve passengers can move about comfortably on the deck, designed to feel like a lounge. A tinted glass panel above will shield passengers from the wind and sun.
Alas, don’t expect to see this vessel pop up anytime soon in the Mediterranean yacht charter market. Audi has not announced any plans to move the multi-hulled motoryacht beyond the concept phase. Still, innovative designs like this bode well for the future of the yachting industry and talented young designers like Stefanie Behringer.
