“I am very proud of the new Perini Navi fleet and of the progress made so far over the last year” commented Giovanni Costantino at the presentation of Genesis. “By transferring the comfort of motor yachts to sailing yachts, we have managed to create a harmonious synergy thanks to our already strong expertise expanded through the acquisition of Perini Navi. The nautical world is showing itself to be particularly sensitive to Perini Navi and our consolidated reputation in terms of design, quality and innovation will contribute to strengthening the expansion and growth strategy of the Group”.

Three models for Genesis

Genesis was born with the aim of creating a fleet of sailing yachts that maintains the elements that have made the fortune of Perini Navi, a shipyard founded in 1983 by Fabio Perini and which has marked the development of yachting. The development is due to the Centro In The Italian Sea Group style and developed over three models starting with a 48-metre sloop with double rudders and drift in the Regatta and Cruise versions. Second model of the Genesis fleet, a 56-metre ketch, the classic size of Perini Navi and which today boasts 14 units built.

The “blue file” of Genesis

The third model is a 77-metre ketch equipped with a Falcon Rig which will repeat the success of the 88-metre Maltese Falcon launched in 2006. The Genesis 77M Falcon Rig will have a spa-beach with folding terraces connected to the stern beach. For all models, alongside the clean lines and large windows, Perini Navi sail handling system navigation systems and a blue leather handrail, a real “blue file”, an element that will be the leitmotif of the Genesis fleet.
