Second 42-meter sailing yacht E-Volution sold by Perini Navi
In December, 2017 YachtHarbour has reported that Perini Navi ventures into hybrid yachts. In July, 2018 first 42-metre sailing yacht E-volution sold by Perini Navi.
Now, Perini Navi announced the sale of the second 42-meter sailing yacht in the E-volution line. She is the first unit in GTS series, and has been sold to an experienced European owner. She is planned to be delivered in spring 2021. Second E-volution unit will be combined from aluminium and carbon, delivering the superior performance on the technical platform developed for the first 42-meter E-volution, with a concept and styling by Perini Navi and naval architecture by Reichel Pugh.
Her naval architecture has been modified in several aspects, for example the keel and the sail plan. The mast has been increased to “Panamax height” (62.5 meters) and the keel extended to a maximum depth of 7.40 meters. The new sail plan features a square top mainsail, an extended boom and a 4-meter bowsprit to maximise the sail surface. To improve performance still further, a series of changes have also been made to significantly reduce the displacement. They include work on the deck house and the use of carbon for various fittings, as well as the optimisation of the propulsion system and structural features.
The new design combines the characteristics of the 42m E-volution series, including clean lines, ample space and a big stern platform, with a more streamlined deck house as requested by the owner. The interior design will be created by Barcelona-based firm GCA jointly with Perini Navi.
