  1. 2015 Launch For Perini Navi 70-meter Ketch "Sybaris"
    Yes that is correct, the 70-meter Perini Navi sailing yacht "Sybaris" will be launched and delivered in 2015. The ketch-rigged super-sailing yacht will be a significant launch for Perini Navi as she will be among their largest (second largest) sailboats launched by them in a while. Of course "Maltese Falcon" still holds the largest build title for Perini. The design of Sybaris is inhouse by Perini Navi with collaboration on Naval Architecture and sail-plan work with Philippe Briand. Interior work is by the United States based firm PH Design.
  2. As large as she is, her profile offers a sleek appearance. Don't allow the well-cloaked lines fool you, Sybaris is a sailing beast. Her sail plan will eventually be around 3,000 square meters hanging from her two masts. The masts are built in carbon fiber by Rondal and measure 72-meters for the main and 62-meters for the aft. The yacht is manufactured in full aluminium, both hull and superstructure. Sybaris hosts hidden environmentally friendly technologies onboard. One of the highlights is perhaps the presence of three Variable Speed Generators that supply electrical power via a DC Bus to the yacht’s total electrical grid. The potential is there to gather and store excess power to Class-Approved lithium polymer batteries. This would make Sybaris the first to utilize this technology on a Perini Navi sailing yacht. A big yacht carries a number of tenders and Sybaris carries three tenders, a rescue tender as well as the two guest 7-meter tenders made by Cockwells. One of the tenders is open and the other a limousine and both are stored in wells below the foredeck. Sybaris is being built at the La Spezia yard of Perini Navi and will be finished in 2015.
