Perini Navi's latest 50m sailing hull is turned

Less than five months after the first plate was cut, the 73 tonne Perini Navi C.2173 is rotated.

As soon as the hull is fixed to the sailing yahct’s superstructure outfit work will continue in Yildiz, with the hull and superstructure set to depart Istanbul at the end of the summer for final commissioning in Viareggio.

This 50 meter yacht designed by Perini Navi in collaboration with Ron Holland, will be ketch-rigged with a swing keel and centralised servo-assisted sail-plan controls.

The hull and superstructure will be built in aluminium with a mixed longitudinal and transverse structure. Main propulsion will be provided by twin diesel engines.

Perini Navi C.2173 delivery is planned for 2012.
