WHAT’S SO SPECIAL?

When it comes to luxurious sailing yachts, one name has dominated the industry for years. The name is Perini Navi.  A Perini Navi yacht charter is the fusion of the luxury of a motoryacht. Specifically with the exhilaration and performance of a wind-powered sailboat. Sailing is ultimately eco-friendly. It is the superyacht experience™.

For the past decade, the 64 meter Perini Navi sail yacht SPIRIT OF THE C’s cruised the warm winter waters of the Caribbean.  Now, the yacht owner’s office has contacted us to promote a special rate for the remainder of the season.

ABOUT THE YACHT

One of the largest and fastest aluminum sailing yachts in the world, SPIRIT OF THE C’s (ex- FELICITA WEST) is currently available for charter in the Caribbean.  After an extensive refit which included a sundeck extension, a complete rebuild and refurbishment of her interior, and the remodeling of the guest cockpit area, she is ready to welcome up to 10 guests in five well-appointed cabins, including a full-beam width master stateroom.

Her new brighter and slightly more minimalistic interior creates a sense of space and an easy flow throughout the yacht.

As for the outdoor spaces, on the main deck, the dining and lounging areas are well-protected from the sun and the wind, while the flybridge is the perfect location for all’aperto (outdoor) dining — the views from here are stunning.   With a dedicated crew of 12 professionals, this is an ideal yacht for island hopping throughout the Caribbean, and we highly recommend this yacht for Virgin Island yacht charter holiday, as the winter breezes are ideal for spirited sailing.

Posted on

STUNNING SAILING YACHTS HEAD TO CARIBBEAN

As the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season draws to a close, a number of sleek, stylish, and modern sailing charter vessels are making their way from ports around the world – to take their positions in the islands for the upcoming Caribbean yacht charter season.

November is the month many yachts make the “Milk Run,” sailing across the Atlantic Ocean from Europe to the Caribbean.As in years past, the Virgin Island yacht charter fleet is expected to dominate the market in terms of the number of available yachts for hire, especially in the category of crewed catamaran charters.  Yachts such as Lagoon 620 catamaran yacht

 

ST. THOMAS WELCOMES THE YACHTS

THE CURE, and Sunreef 62 catamaran, TAHAA II are already in position to accept reservations (how does a Welcome to 2014 yacht charter vacation sound???).While the St. Thomas yacht charter market in the USVI, and the Tortola yacht charter market in the BVI are quite sizeble in terms of small to mid-size yachts, a large contingent of sail superyachts will choose the deeper water of the Leeward Islands for their winter base.  The St Martin yacht charter fleet and the St Barts fleets are expected to include the following mega yacht charter stalwarts.  For instance, 203 foot sail yacht ATHOS – 198 foot sail yacht KOKOMO – and 183 foot Perini Navi yacht PANTHALASSA

WHEN IS THE CARIBBEAN SAILING FLEET ARRIVING?

The Caribbean sailing yacht fleet will be in place from early December, 2013 through April, 2014.

Superyacht Builder Takeover of Perini Navi

Posted on

PERINI NAVI ON THE ROPES

Milano Finanza, Italy’s financial newspaper, reports yacht builder Perini Navi has filed for bankruptcy protection.

The move is hardly surprising, or unexpected.  The company has negative EBITDA of €25 million.  Debt between banks and suppliers is estimated at €55 million.

What is a bit of a surprise?  A buyout might be cultivated with rival local yard, Sanlorenzo.

 

ENTER SAN LORENZO

The newspaper states Sanlorenzo seeks a 70% controlling stake in Perini Navi.  To achieve this, the majority shareholder (the Tabacchi family) will dilute their ownership.  Their stake will drop from 74% to 30%

 

THE ARRANGEMENT

To begin with, a new company will be created.  After that, a cash infusion of €40 million will be needed.  Simultaneously,  Sanlorenzo will inject €30 million, and the Tabacchi family will put up €10 million.

 

 

NOT SO FAST

Perini Navi Chairman Edoardo Tabacchi is probably eager to close a deal.  However, there are many hurdles.

First, the Italian courts must formalize the bankruptcy. Second, the deal requires the consent of creditors.  Third, the deal could be challenged as a local monopoly.

Both yards are based in Viareggio.  Local union FIOM Tuscany is concerned about the plan.  In particular, the union questions the impact of such a monopoly within Viareggio.  They want a review of local concessions.

 

THE FUTURE:  SAIL VS POWER

It’s hard to challenge the success of Sanlorenzo.  In 2019, they went public with an IPO.  Year end reports were strong. New motor yacht sales up 39.3% compared to 2018.  EBITDA up 73.4% compared to fiscal 2018.

Even so, can Sanlorenzo succeed in the sailing yacht sector?  Consider Perini Navi is ranked #1 in the top 5 sailing superyacht builders.  Traditionally, in the superyacht market, 5 times as many motoryachts are built as compared to sailing yachts.

 

THE CHAIRMAN COMMENTS

Even so, Chairman Massimo Perotti remains positive:

“Sailing yachts are the sustainable future…the wind is completely clean and completely free.”

Perotti might be correct.  According to Boat International,

“(in 2019) We also recorded some welcome news for the sailing sector this year, with the numbers of 24-metre-plus sailing yachts ordered or under construction increasing by 15.7 per cent over last year. The number of projects – 59 – is still way down on the 10-year high of 95 in 2014, but any uptick in interest in sailing is welcome.”

 

HISTORY

Perini Navi defines private luxury yacht charter for sailors.  For instance, sail yacht SELENE, and sailing vessel PERSEUS 3, and BRAVO’s Below Deck’s sailboat, PARSIFAL III.  Of course, there is also the most famous sail yacht on the planet, the superyacht MALTESE FALCON.

Hopefully, the name will live on…
