Perini Navi, the world's leader in the design and build of sailing and motoryachts, announces the sale of the second 42-meter sailing yacht in the E-volution line.

The new 42m S/Y, the first unit in the GTS series, has been sold to an expert European owner and will be delivered in spring 2021.

Based on the platform developed for the first 42-meter E-volution, with a concept and styling by Perini Navi and naval architecture by Reichel Pugh, this second unit combines aluminium and carbon to deliver superior performance.

Several aspects of the naval architecture have been modified, including 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 four-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 by Barcelona-based firm GCA jointly with Perini Navi.

"We are extremely excited by this new sale, which completes an important year for our shipyard," says Perini Navi Chairman and CEO Lamberto Tacoli. "We have a lot of confidence in the 42m E-volution GTS project because it represents the perfect synthesis of comfort and performance and we are pleased that the line is having so much success in this important market segment."

The shipyard, which at present has the highest number of sailing yachts over 40 meters under construction in the world, has drawn up production plans to build seven yachts, four under sail and three motor yachts. In detail:

  • 42 m sailing yacht E-volution
  • 42m sailing yacht E-volution GTS;
  • 47 m sailing yacht E-volution;
  • 60 m sailing yacht;
  • 25 m motor yacht "Eco-tender";
  • 53 m motor yacht Voyager;
  • 56 m motor yacht Voyager.
