  1. 73-meter Picchiotti superyacht "Grace E" completes sea trials

    The third and largest member of the Picchiotti superyacht series, "Grace E", has now successfully completed sea trials. Grace E achieved excellent results in all of the tests scheduled for her sea trails: range, maximum speed, fuel and power consumption, Dynamic Positioning system. Her quietness and lack of vibration have especially pleased the technicians aboard. Ideal for cruising on the high seas, Grace E has exterior spaces spread over five decks. The upper deck, or Wellness Deck, is entirely dedicated to care of the person and wellness with a gym, sauna and hydrotherapy equipment. The interiors, designed by Remi Tessier, are elegant with strong contemporary accents.
  2. Grace E has a different diesel-electric propulsion system compared to her predecessors "Exuma" and "Galileo G", an advanced system that runs on two Azipods, electronically activated propellers mounted on a guidable support. Yacht captain Eddie Cooney commented: “Recent sea trials have confirmed that the use of electrical Azipods for the propulsion of Grace E has made for exceptional quietness and comfort while navigating. This result is due to the fact that the yacht does not have traditional shafts but a system that does not create propeller noise. There is little evidence that the boat is underway unless you are looking out the windows and actually witnessing the changing landscape. We expect that this will be a very much appreciated asset to guests cruising aboard.”
