We share information with readers in our blog the key reasons to consider a sailing yacht for their next yachting holiday.  Several customers agree.  They love that sailboats offer a tranquil, more relaxing experience than a cruise on a motoryacht.

Just as there are “brand” aficionados with powerboats, it turns out the sail yacht enthusiasts have a favorite manufacturer as well:  Perini Navi.

The Perini Navi Group builds superyachts under two specific brand names: Perini Navi for the sail boat division, and Picchiotti for the motor yacht division. Founded in 1983, Perini Navi Group has operations in five market sectors:

  • Large sailing yachts that range from 40 to 60 meters
  • Large sailing yachts over 60 meters and custom projects
  • A racing line of sailing yachts
  • A fast cruising line of sailing yachts
  • Picchiotti motor yachts from the Vitruvius® series

It is in Viareggio, Italy, where the world’s premier brand of sail yacht projects are draw, developed and constructed.

From master Italian craftsmen, to the use of the finest materials and amenities, these sailing vessels have garnered critical acclaim, and a dedicated following of repeat charter customers.
Over a dozen yachts by this storied manufacture are available in the luxury sailing charter marketplace.  Among the standout vessels are sail yacht MALTESE FALCON, sail yacht MELEK, sail yacht SALUTE, and sail yacht PANTHALASSA.

Les Voiles de Saint Barth to Attract Perini Navi Yacht Charter Sailboats

Posted on


Sailors come to the Caribbean every year.  For the Perini Navi yacht charter aficionado, that lure continues to this day.  Superyacht builder Perini Navi can proudly boast that a large number of Caribbean yacht charter megayacht vessels were launched from their acclaimed Italian shipyard.



Perini Navi has a new sail event in 2010. The yacht charter experience is an opportunity to participate in a superyacht race event.


A new regatta, “Les Voiles de Saint Barth,” is from April 6 and April 11th, 2010. The event organizers are the Saint Barth Yacht Club and Comité Territorial du Tourisme, with the support of Saint Barthélémy’s Collectivité.

While classic boats and multihulls will race in this new event, the undoubted stars of the show will be in the superyacht category.  The megayacht Caribbean yacht charter vessels, will be led by a flotilla of Perini Navi sailboats.

Expected to participate are MALTESE FALCON, SALUTE, and SELENE.

Up to 10 more Perini Navi sailboats are considering participation.


There is an inspiration for “Les Voiles de Saint Barth.”  In specific, to create a regatta for beautiful sailboats.  They navigate in the local waters in a festive spirit.  This happens in the idyllic setting of Saint Barth Island.  Everyone gets involved.  For instance, residents, storekeepers, and water sport professionals.  All get ready to welcome megayachts and their crews.  Fortunate Caribbean yacht charter customers also participate.  That could be you!  Spring is a wonderful time to plan sail boat charters in the Caribbean.  A St. Barts yacht charter during “Les Voiles de Saint Barth” brings memories to last a lifetime.



In conclusion, charter a yacht and enjoy the sailboat race in St. Barts. Exhiliaration and excitement await.

Luxury Sailing Yacht Builder In A Class Of Its Own

Posted on


Was it really ten months ago that nearly two dozen of the largest luxury sailing charter vessels gathered in Porto Cervo, Sardinia for one of the most popular yachting events in the Mediterranean, the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta?



This past week, 28 superyacht vessels converged at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda base in Virgin Gorda for the third “Caribbean” edition of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, sponsored by luxury Italian brand Loro Piana.



If there is one yacht builder that stands out among all others at these events, it has to be Perini Navi.  Since the early eighties, Perini Navi has built luxury sailing charter vessels in a class of their own. To date, the company has built 52 yachts, measuring up to 88 meters in length.

Flagship of the fleet is the Perini Navi yacht MALTESE FALCON, delivered in 2006. A masterpiece of technology and design, the 88 meter yacht MALTESE FALCON is without equal.  At the 2013 Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta, Perini Navi will be represented by 38m cruiser/racer sail yacht P2, as well as the sleek and stylish 54m yacht PARSIFAL III


Other Perini Navi yacht charter vessels are often available in the Caribbean. For instance, 56 meter yacht SALUTE and the 50 meter yacht BARACUDA.
