The best “supersailyacht” of the year? Your votes are clear: the winner of our poll is Perini Navi Perseus 3. Second place for Claasen Shipyards Atalante, at third place Vitters Shipyard Unfurled.
Second 60m of the series, built for yet another Perini Navi owner who chose to create his own Perini, the design brief called for Perseus^3 to feature the tallest carbon fibre mast ever built, and – thanks to its unique bowsprit – the biggest downwind sail area ever seen on a yacht.
With interior design by Perini Navi, classic contemporary interior, and superlative performance, Perseus3 was built for fast cruising and racing.
The sloop-rigged Perseus 3 has been equipped throughout to offer sailing performance at the highest levels including an ultra-lightweight 78m carbon fibre mast for a vast sail area, a carbon fiber bowsprit, and twin rudders along with an intelligent deck layout.
Her sophisticated and comfortable interior design boasts large and numerous locales for dining, lounging and entertainment areas in the aft cockpit, flybridge and main salon; a player piano in the main salon; Out on deck are two opening beach platforms both stern and port side, easy access to her two 6.2m unique custom tenders as well as a large endless lap/jacuzzi pool on the foredeck. Her list of thoughtful amenities will delight charter guests.
