Hull turning operations completed for Pichiotti-Vitruvius' first motor yacht, the aluminium 50m currently under construction at the Perini Navi Group shipyards in La Spezia.

Hull turning operations completed for Pichiotti-Vitruvius' first motor yacht, the aluminium 50m currently under construction at the Perini Navi Group shipyards in La Spezia.

The 50m aluminium hull for the first motor yacht in the Vitruvius series – code name C.2134 – was turned upright yesterday at the Cantieri Navali Beconcini premises, the Perini Navi Group facility in La Spezia. The difficult operation was successfully completed in front of the shipyard workers and the Group management.

The metalwork on the hull blocks was executed using the overturned construction technique, a manufacturing method which allows for greater precision in all hull sheet welding and finishing activities, an important aspect in the construction of yachts with complex shapes.

Last Thursday the hull, which had been removed from the shed the previous day, was raised by powerful cranes and was subsequently turned. During the different stages in the aerial handling of the hull it was possible to see in great detail the design and style peculiarities of this innovative motor yacht series: extremely streamlined features and rake of the stem. Philippe Briand, designer and creator of the Vitruvius concept, deliberately drew inspiration from the hydrodynamic rules of sailing yacht hulls, whose lines, distribution of volumes and weights are optimized in order to reach the highest efficiency. All motor yachts in the Vitruvius-Picchiotti series feature hulls able to minimize drag thus reducing fuel consumption, with close to 50% energy savings compared to motor yachts in a similar range currently available on the market.

C.2143 is an Explorer, a vessel conceived for long crossings. Once completed, her displacement will be optimized at 430 tons, with a range of app. 4,500nm at a cruising speed of 12 knots. Delivery is expected for spring 2010.

Perini Navi recently announced the sale of a second Vitruvius unit, a 55m steel Explorer classified ICE CLASS for navigation in Arctic waters. Delivery of the 55m will take place in 2011.

According to Giancarlo Ragnetti, CEO of the Perini Navi Group: “the motor yachts in the Vitruvius® series mark the return of the Picchiotti brand in the motor yacht industry. With two units sold and currently under construction, the Vitruvius® project is the crowning achievement in the product differentiation strategy pursued by the Perini Navi Group. Today we can boast two important product brands - Perini Navi for sailing yachts, Picchiotti for motor yachts- and a strong production activity, spread through three different premises: Viareggio, Istanbul and La Spezia, which enable us to build up to 4 sailing yacht units and 2 motor yacht units per year”.
