Since its establishment in the early Eighties, Perini Navi has always built sailing yachts in a class of their own. Italian entrepreneur Fabio Perini, unable to find the boat that he wanted for himself – a large sailing yacht which could be handled by one person – decided to create one from scratch. To date, the company has built 52 yachts – up to 88m in length. Flagship of the fleet is the iconic The Maltese Falcon, the revolutionary clipper delivered in 2006. With over 50 percent of the world market for sailing yachts over 45m, Perini Navi’s track record is impressive. In-house design has allowed Perini Navi to implement its own systems and innovations. All sail controls, as well as masts and rigging, are developed and manufactured internally. Yet the style and flavour of the yachts are truly classic – and have become a reference for all those who dream of luxury yacht ownership. Perini Navi is recognized around the world as the first true brand in the world of large sailing yachts. Today Perini Navi Group is involved in the luxury yacht industry with 2 specific brands: Perini Navi for sailing yachts and Picchiotti for motor-yachts.
