When it comes to sailing yachts, there aren’t many names better recognized than Perini Navi. Founded in 1983 by Fabio Perini, an Italian entrepreneur and visionary, this innovative company created a revolutionary sail handling system that enables a single person to control the sails of a large yacht. In the following years, Perini also introduced the captive reel winch, an automatic reel system guided by a system of electronically controlled electric motors, and other inventions that have changed the look, shape, function, and feel of modern sailing yachts. The shipyard has a reputation for building some of the world's largest and most luxurious sailing yachts, attracting discerning clients who seek the perfect blend of performance, comfort, and style.
Over the years, Perini Navi has built an impressive portfolio of remarkable yachts that have explored the world's oceans. From the iconic 88m Maltese Falcon, a revolutionary sailing superyacht with its unique DynaRig system, to the graceful 60m Perseus^3, known for its impressive sailing performance, the shipyard's creations have captured the imagination of yachting enthusiasts worldwide.
