AROUND THE YARDS
C.2123 Main Characteristics
The Italian superyacht yard in conjunction with Kiwi designer Ron Holland will build another all-aluminium yacht, the eighth in a successful series.
The order for the 56m ketch, hull number C.2123 will be the 48th vessel in the Perini Navi fleet that comprises 40 yachts in commission and eight under construction. This latest contract was signed with the collaboration of Mark Hilpern from the well-respected brokerage house Camper & Nicholsons International.
C.2123 represents a significant evolution of the 56 metre concept, with a sail plan and hull optimisation by the renowned Irish-based naval architect Ron Holland.
This vessel boasts a new appearance, characterised by more angular, aggressive lines and a revised deck arrangement. The owner chose the London-based design studio Foster & Partners for the design of her interior in what will be this company's first collaboration with Perini Navi.
Following the sale of C.2123, the 56 metre series has now reached eight vessels, of which four (Burrasca, Santa Maria, Rosehearty and Selene) are not only in commission, but have also received praise from the international yachting press.
Within the next 30 months, Perini Navi will deliver the remaining eight yachts currently under construction. These comprise two 45m steel-hulled cutters, four all-aluminium yachts in the 56m series (three ketches and one sloop), one
50m ketch, also in aluminium alloy, and one 38m sloop in Sealium alloy.
The 48 blue-water sailing yachts in the Perini Navi fleet are all products of their shipyards. Perini Navi and Cantiere Perini Navi also operate sales and a charter office, Perini Navi USA in Newport, Rhode Island.
