The hull of the first S/Y 42m E-volution has arrived in Viareggio from the Perini Navi yard at Yildiz in Turkey. Part of the series created by Perini Navi's in-house designers in collaboration with renowned American performance yacht specialists Reichel/Pugh, the yacht will be delivered in summer 2020.

As the first hull in the E-volution line, the 42m performance cruising yacht represents the beginning of an exciting new era for Perini Navi. Sloop-rigged, it is built from aluminium with a carbon-fibre mast, boom and rigging.

In terms of aesthetics, the crisp exterior styling by Franco Romani, Perini Navi's Style & Design Director, breaks with tradition, while the terraced aft deck introduces more space and improves functionality in addition to bringing guests into closer contact with the water.

The naval architecture and sail plan by Reichel/Pugh offer the ideal compromise between cruising comfort and performance. Equipped with a lifting keel, the yacht will be powerful and easy to handle.

Reflecting the yard's commitment to sustainability and protecting the marine environment, the 42m E-volution is the first sailing yacht by Perini Navi with hybrid propulsion. The latter uses an eco-friendly e-motor to offset the use of the main diesel engine. The diesel-electric drivetrain delivers silent cruising and a range of 3,000 nautical miles at nine knots, in diesel mode.

"It is always big news to see yet another yacht taking shape at our yard," commented Perini Navi Chairman and CEO Lamberto Tacoli. "The 42m E-volution is part of a new product range that we have invested heavily in and is enjoying notable success on the market. We sold the second 42m unit last November, in fact, and its hull is now building in Turkey. There are also interesting developments in the pipeline for the future".

Perini Navi currently has the largest number of over-40m sailing superyachts in build in the world. Its production plans span seven craft, four sailing and three motor. Specifically:

  1. 42m E-volution sailing yacht
  2. 42m E-volution GTS sailing yacht
  3. 47m E-volution sailing yacht
  4. 60m Classic sailing yacht
  5. 53m Voyager motoryacht
  6. 56m Voyager motoryacht
  7. 25m Eco-tender motoryacht
Lastly, the 25m "Eco-tender" motoryacht was launched on Saturday, March 2, at the La Spezia yard and will be delivered in May 2019.
