Perini Navi Sybaris launched

The technical launch of the 70-metre Sybaris has taken place at the Perini Navi yard – the yard's biggest and most technically challenging sailing yacht since the iconic Maltese Falcon.

The Perini Navi Sybaris benefited from the yard’s ongoing research into new technical solutions as well as her experienced owner’s input and insistence on excellence from the beginning of the project. The yard says that the original design was revisited and underwent significant upgrades throughout the build. Exterior design – by Perini Navi’s Technical & Design Office with input from the owner’s team – is sleeker and more sculptured than previous models, with a less pronounced sheerline and a more vertical bow. The contribution of Philippe Briand, who optimised the naval architecture and sailplan was fundamental in integrating high performance with luxurious comfort at sea, the yard says.

The owner’s team introduced a dynamic, wave-like design of the steps on both sides of the cockpit to create a flowing connection with the open aft deck, while the overhang of the superstructure brow above the windows has also been eliminated to present a flush surface. Two carbon fibre tenders (a Limo and a Sport version) were custom-built by Cockwells of Falmouth, and these – along with a 4.5 Zodiac rescue tender – live in the recessed foredeck.

Her battery banks offer the advantage of a ‘silent running’ mode at anchor and while sailing. The owner brought in PH Design to create the refined interior design and décor, but their brief also extended to the open-air living areas. The Miami-based studio introduced the sculpted railings and other fixtures milled from solid titanium that appear throughout the yacht. The lustrous alloy is notoriously difficult to work and Perini Navi had to seek out specialist craftsmen accustomed to working on components for Formula 1 racing cars.

The open-plan layout, clean lines and custom-designed furniture provide a crisp and contemporary style that acts as a muted backdrop to the bold works of art from the owner’s private collection. Inside there is an open-plan, full-beam owner’s suite flanked by a study space and day lounge. Sybaris is named after the ancient Greek settlement in southern Italy whose population was renowned for its pursuit of life’s pleasures.

The Pereni's are not to everyone's taste. It's nice that she can run silent, the one my friend runs has to run a generator at the dock, because shore power cannot keep up with the electrical demand

Does absolutely nada for me. Just inventing more ways to spend lots of money to produce a really conspicuous mediocre yacht.

I still prefer skiff sailing:D

Just don't get it, never will. Are people going to do serious crossings in this? Do 'the rich' spend 2-3 months at sea? With 40 guests? Is it just for hopping about the islands? If so, with a minimum of 4.5 M draft, where can they get into? Why be so isolated with all that unneeded titanium?

A friend of mine who's worked building such yachts once told me 'more than three spreaders is just optimistic'.

I'd enjoy strafing one with a WWII fighter plane.

i seriously doubt that the boat can operate with stored energy for more than a few hours.

How does that big red crane mounted on the foredeck affect performance?:D

Lots of spreaders...

Probably room for half a dozen of them in the hold for 'toys'. :ycool:

Biggest spreaders I have ever seen.

more mega marinas = less anchorages for small vessels
