Industry News

She was successfully delivered on her own bottom from the Perini Navi Group shipyard Yildiz in Istanbul, Turkey, where she was fabricated and had her machinery installed, to the group’s Beconcini Shipyard in La Spezia, Italy.


The journey began on November 16 for the steel hull and aluminium superstructure of the ‘C2156’. Her average speed was 10 knots; the voyage was in light northerly winds. She reached the Gulf of La Spezia in the early afternoon of Sunday, November 22, two days ahead of schedule.
Initially she anchored off. The next day she went alongside the Beconcini Shipyard wharf, where she waits to be transferred inside one of three new 3,200m² (34,400ft²) sheds of the facility with the yard’s 820-ton travel-hoist.
She is being built in compliance with Ice-Class standards with the purpose of transiting the Arctic Ocean’s famous Northwest Passage which runs from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.
This Picchiotti-Vitruvius 55m (180ft), the second motoryacht to be sold by Perini Navi Group, will be delivered in 2011.
In another Beconcini shed, the first Picchiotti-Vitruvius 50m (164ft) motoryacht nears completion, she should be ready for launch in the spring of 2010.
Perini Navi Group, recently signed its third Picchiotti-Vitruvius motoryacht – a 73m also designed by French naval architect Philippe Briand. She is due for delivery in 2013.
