Italian boatbuilder Perini Navi has issued an update on the construction of the fourth hull in its 60-metre ketch series. Work is reportedly proceeding at full speed at the Italian Sea Group’s Marina di Carrara facility in northern Italy, with the vessel on track for an August 2024 launch.

The yacht, originally known as Project C2239, has been developed in collaboration with Ron Holland, who also oversaw its naval architecture. Perini Navi says the superyacht is designed for those who want to sail in “total safety and in comfort and efficiency”.

With an aluminium hull and superstructure, a gross tonnage of less than 500 and a displacement of about 570 tons, the yacht will feature carbon-fibre masts, booms and rigging once complete.

The yard says the yacht’s sailing system has been redesigned to increase the vessel’s ease of handling and to ensure speed and better performance.


A state-of-the-art dynamic positioning system helps keep the yacht’s position and direction independently, without the use of an anchor.

“The lines of this 60-metre yacht are the result of constant efforts that allowed us to preserve the unmistakable Perini Navi style and, at the same time, create a more modern yacht,” says Giovanni Costantino, founder and chief executive of The Italian Sea Group.

Interiors aboard Project C2239 are designed by the French designer Rémi Tessier, who has overseen the owner’s suite and the five guest cabins.

Details are to be confirmed, but the yard promises an “elegant and comfortable setting,” where “luxury and refinement are experienced ostentatiously.”

Engine power aboard the yacht comes from twin MTU diesel engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots. Perini Navi says newly completed work on optimising the facilities will be followed by outfitting and masting operations.

Delivery of the yacht is scheduled for the end of 2024. Once delivered, it will join sibling ships Perseus 3, Seahawk and Seven on the water.
