Sybaris is the second largest sailing yacht the Italian yard has built to date.
Last week the 70-metre sailing yacht Sybaris made her debut in Italy. She features an aluminium hull and superstructure and is waiting for her carbon fibre rig to be fitted – a 62-metre mizzen mast and a main reaching a height of 72 metres will soon be stepped. Together they will host a sailplan of over 3,000 square metres.
Responsible for her lines is the in-house design team at Perini Navi, along with naval architecture consultation and sailplan optimisation by Philippe Briand. US-based design house PH Design are in charge of the interiors, which will feature high-end materials such as titanium and plenty of bespoke furniture. Peter Hawrylewicz of PH Design describes the concept for Sybaris as “spatially open, with clean lines and intense detailing. A large variety of natural
materials all held to a subtle muted palette”. Sybaris will also boast an interior “that will show a modern art collection to its greatest advantage”.
The main deck boasts a 30-metre-long guest space from the aft cockpit to the wheelhouse. A large sliding door allows easy movement between the exterior cockpit and interior main salon, which enjoys uninterupted views out of the large windows. Up top, there is an 18-metre flybridge that affords all manner of lounging and entertaining spaces for guests.
Forward on the bow will be two 7-metre carbon fibre Cockwells tenders, one of which is to be a limo, and a 4.5-metre rescue tender.
