Na­vi is re­no­w­ned for its ex­clu­si­ve all round me­ga sai­ling crui­sers whi­ch are fai­th­ful to Fa­bio Pe­ri­ni’s vi­sion - the ori­gi­nal foun­der of this fa­mous shipyard and to Fran­co Ro­ma­ni in char­ge of all the en­gi­nee­ring whi­ch has go­ne in­to as ma­ny as six­ty Pe­ri­ni Na­vi ran­ging from the 25 me­tre Elet­tra to the 88 me­tre Mal­te­se Fal­con at the top end pas­sing via the family of 46 me­tre ya­ch­ts to the 52 me­tre ran­ge and to Sy­ba­ris.this spec­ta­cu­lar 70 me­tre ya­cht boa­sting won­der­ful li­nes and an im­pres­si­ve gra­ce­ful silhouette was of­fi­cial­ly pre­sen­ted at the re­cent Mo­na­coya­cht Show. Fa­bio Pe­ri­ni’s pas­sion and que­st for in­no­va­tion are as mu­ch as his dri­ve, whi­ch trans­la­tes in­to not on­ly buil­ding captive win­ches to the con­trol sy­stems in hou­se. It is thanks to the­se that Fa­bio Pe­ri­ni sai­led a 25 me­tre sai­ling ya­cht by him­self out of Viareggio’s port. The­se lar­ge sai­ling ya­ch­ts ha­ve all been de­si­gned from the dra­wing board, to sail eve­ry­whe­re, whi­le in­no­va­tion has been li­be­ral­ly de­ployed to en­han­ce ma­noeu­vra­bi­li­ty, sa­fe­ty and com­fort. Per­for­man­ce has always been trea­ted as the na­tu­ral re­sult of the equa­tion gi­ven the leng­th of the wa­ter­li­nes in­vol­ved, the si­ze of ge­ne­rous sail plans and to ket­ch rigs. But in spi­te of this, in 2008 the yard in La Spe­zia whi­ch al­so car­ries out re­fi­ts be­gan to build an alu­mi­nium hull wi­th su­per­struc­tu­re in com­po­si­tes - an in­te­re­sting mix - na­med P2, whi­ch Phi­lip­pe Briand de­si­gned and soon be­ca­me a fi­ne blue wa­ter sai­ling crui­ser. In fact P2 did ve­ry well in all the ra­cing even­ts she com­pe­ted in, wi­thout ha­ving to do away wi­th any com­fort be­low decks, the­re­fo­re wi­thout be­tray­ing the shipyard’s re­pu­ta­tion whi­ch gai­ned fur­ther po­pu­la­ri­ty in the glo­bal char­ter mar­ket. Soon enou­gh gi­ven the re­sul­ts ob­tai­ned, a se­cond sai­ling ya­cht li­ke the pre­ce­ding one in terms of de­si­gn was built in the sa­me yard but wi­th a dif­fe­ren­ce, this ti­me the choi­ce of the con­struc­tion material dif­fe­red in as mu­ch as the hull and the su­per­struc­tu­re we­re all in Sea­lium alu­mi­nium al­loy. The hull, co­de na­med C. 2130 has been na­med Da­hlak, whi­ch is the name gi­ven to a group of islands in the Red Sea dear to the ow­ner around whi­ch he had sai­led as a boy.the ya­cht’s sleek and ele­gant ex­ter­nal li­nes dra­wn up eight years ago by Phi­lip­pe Briand still look good in the wa­ter and at­trac­ted mu­ch at­ten­tion in the cour­se of the re­cent Ya­ch­ting Festival held in Can­nes (Festival de la plai­san­ce) where Da­hlak was ex­hi­bi­ted for the fir­st ti­me mar­king Pe­ri­ni Na­vi’s fir­st vi­sit to the Can­nes Ya­ch­ting Festival whi­ch has al­so be­co­me one of the mo­st im­por­tant in the Me­di­ter­ra­nean. To the new ow­ner Da­hlak is a con­si­de­ra­ble step for­ward and up in terms of si­ze, po­wer and com­ple­xi­ty when com­pa­red to his pre­ce­ding ya­cht whi­ch was a 60’ ca­ta­ma­ran. The ow­ner is a ve­ry ca­pa­ble sea­man who’s poi­sed to ex­pe­rien­ce what it is li­ke to sail a 38 me­tre

sin­gle han­ded, whi­ch is not ea­sy to do on a nor­mal ya­cht, but is con­si­de­ra­bly ea­sier on a Pe­ri­ni Na­vi. The ow­ner is pro­fes­sio­nal­ly qua­li­fied wi­th RYA Ya­cht­ma­ster cer­ti­fi­ca­tion an unu­sual qua­li­fi­ca­tion even for sai­ling ya­cht buffs. “The ow­ner re­pea­ted­ly in­si­sted that Da­hlak be abo­ve all a family ya­cht in eve­ry sen­se of the word – is what Bu­rak Ak­gul Pe­ri­ni Na­vi’s Sa­les & Mar­ke­ting Director re­por­ted – wi­th the­se words, the ow­ner al­so wi­shed to in­clu­de Pe­ri­ni’s family and not on­ly his own. We’re ho­nou­red the ow­ner cho­se us to build his new sai­ling ya­cht wi­th whi­ch he’s plan­ning to sail across oceans in com­fort and sa­fe­ty”. Da­hlak and P2 sport the sa­me sail plan, car­bon ma­st and rig and the sa­me na­val ar­chi­tec­tu­re whi­ch fea­tu­res al­mo­st ver­ti­cal bo­ws to ex­tend the wa­ter li­ne leng­th ac­com­pa­nied by a po­wer­ful sail plan to en­han­ce wind­ward per­for­man­ce. An in­no­va­ti­ve elec­tric bus sy­stem wor­king off li­thium po­ly­mers can de­li­ver 136 Kw/hr of elec­tric ener­gy where the bus con­duc­ting sy­stem in DC ef­fi­cien­tly di­stri­bu­tes con­stant ten­sion or “clean” ener­gy th­rou­ghout the ya­cht. Ac­cor­din­gly, whe­ther sai­ling or ly­ing to an an­chor wi­th eve­ry fa­ci­li­ty tur­ned on, the on board bat­te­ry banks can sup­ply ener­gy for up to 8 noi­se free hours, wi­th the gen. se­ts in “off” po­si­tion whi­ch al­so con­si­de­ra­bly re­du­ces ex­hau­st emis­sion. Ju­st as on board of P2, Da­hlak’s ex­ten­da­ble bulb keel whi­ch va­ries from 3.50 to 5.50 me­tres that is set on the ver­ti­cal pla­ne to the bat­te­ries abo­ve whi­ch are sto­red un­der the floo­ring on the hull.their weight is su­ch that there’s no need to car­ry wa­ter bal­la­st con­tai­ners. To fur­ther sa­ti­sfy the ow­ner’s re­quests to ef­fec­ti­ve­ly sail the ya­cht ef­fi­cien­tly and ea­si­ly, Da­hlak has been equip­ped wi­th Har­ken win­ches on deck wi­th an ad­di­tio­nal th­ree se­mi au­to­ma­tic elec­tric captive win­ches en­gi­nee­red by Pe­ri­ni Na­vi plus a car­bon park ave­nue ty­pe boom in­to whi­ch the main furls. Da­hlak’s boom and captive win­ches work in sync. thanks to Pe­ri­ni Na­vi’s Au­to­ma­ted Sail Hand­ling Sy­stem whi­ch speeds up fur­ling and un fur­ling speed no­ta­bly as the main­sail is hoi­sted. The sa­me au­to­ma­ted sy­stem is al­so de­ployed on the fo­re­sails whi­ch in­crea­ses per­for­man­ce, speed and ea­se of ma­noeu­vra­bi­li­ty at all ti­mes but mo­re so when going about or in a gy­be and in any sea sta­te when com­pa­red to the pre­ce­ding sy­stem in­stal­led on P2. Ma­nual sail con­trols in­stal­led on P2 we­re si­tua­ted bet­ween the two helm sta­tions at the cen­tre of the coc­k­pit, whi­le the au­to­ma­ted sy­stem in­stal­led on Da­hlak has been in­stal­led in­to bo­th car­bon built helm sta­tion con­so­les for ea­se of hand­ling so that they are mo­re rea­di­ly avai­la­ble when sai­ling

alo­ne or shor­than­ded.the ya­cht fea­tu­res a light di­spla­ce­ment by com­pa­ri­son thanks to am­ple use of com­po­si­tes, among whi­ch a Sou­thern Spars 51.40 me­tre ma­st wi­th EC6 rig­ging gear whi­ch trans­la­tes in­to a di­spla­ce­ment of 162 tons and 171 GRT. Phi­lip­pe Briand’s li­ve­ly gra­ce­ful li­nes are plea­sing to the eye. Pe­ri­ni Na­vi has wor­ked clo­se­ly wi­th the de­si­gner to co­me up wi­th a 15 cms hi­gher su­per­struc­tu­re to de­li­ver ad­ded com­fort and bright­ness to the in­te­riors wi­thout al­te­ring the ya­cht’s sleek pro­fi­le. The ac­crued sen­se of spa­ce has al­so been ob­tai­ned by a sky­light whi­ch runs along the leng­th of the coa­ch roof top floo­ding it li­te­ral­ly wi­th plen­ty of na­tu­ral light. All the ya­cht’s cut glass pa­nels ha­ve been trea­ted to com­bat heat pro­du­cing IR and da­ma­ging UV rays.the coc­k­pit of­fers a cer­tain de­gree of ver­sa­ti­li­ty in that it can be de­ployed as di­ning area or loun­ge from whi­ch to en­joy the sur­roun­dings whi­le being pro­tec­ted by a bi­mi­ni top and a fol­ding spray hood. Fur­ther astern there’s a ge­ne­rous ga­ra­ge/han­gar whi­ch can sto­re up to a 4.80 me­tre Ca­stol­di jet ten­der whi­ch is an in­te­re­sting re­sult ne­ver­the­less con­si­de­ring the leng­th of the sai­ling ya­cht. Da­hlak’s in­te­rior lay­out is ve­ry si­mi­lar to P2’s. There’s ac­com­mo­da­tion for eight guests: the ow­ner’s ca­bin runs full beam across, two dou­bles are equip­ped wi­th pri­va­te ba­th­rooms whi­le a fur­ther gue­st ca­bin ideal for chil­dren, is equip­ped wi­th fol­da­way ber­ths and a sin­gle bed whi­ch can con­vert in­to a dou­ble one. Se­ve­ral other chan­ges we­re ma­de ac­cor­ding to the ow­ner’s wi­shes li­ke the gal­ley whi­ch sports a ser­ving hat­ch, and bo­th the di­ning and li­ving areas whi­ch ha­ve been de­co­ra­ted wi­th light cot­ton fa­brics by Zim­mer and Roh­de are now se­pa­ra­ted from the in­ter­nal helm con­trols sta­tion by wai­st hi­gh set­tees.the crew’s quar­ters are spa­cious and well fur­ni­shed and can ac­com­mo­da­te up to six in th­ree ca­bins wi­th pri­va­te ba­th­rooms. The in­te­rior de­si­gn work was

car­ried out by Pe­ri­ni Na­vi’s uf­fi­cio sti­le.teak ta­kes the lion’s share, it is bo­th whi­te­ned and glos­sy and is de­ployed wi­th bru­shed stain­less, whi­le the floo­ring is in egg­shell fi­ni­shed teak wi­th white strips.the cei­ling’s sur­fa­ces ha­ve been lac­que­red to con­tra­st white skin­ned fur­ni­tu­re in­stal­led in the main sa­loon whi­ch con­veys ai­ry bright­ness to the area. The gue­st ca­bins sport pearl grey skin bul­kheads whi­le the beds’ head­boards are li­ned wi­th blue hand craf­ted skins whi­ch blend well wi­th the ash wood ca­bin cei­lings and Lo­ro Pia­na uphol­ste­ry. The Pe­ri­ni blue of the hull wi­th the white mo­ther of pearl su­per­struc­tu­re en­sem­ble, con­vey a so­phi­sti­ca­ted and so­ber ove­rall ef­fect th­rou­ghout whi­ch is si­mul­ta­neou­sly plea­san­tly fa­mi­liar and wel­co­ming. The ow­ner de­scri­bed his new ya­cht as fol­lo­ws: “Da­hlak blends per­for­man­ce and speed wi­th beau­ty and com­fort and ma­kes our dream co­me true. We’re hap­py to ha­ve had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to work in clo­se con­tact wi­th Pe­ri­ni Na­vi’s team whi­ch has well in­ter­pre­ted our re­quests and has grea­tly con­tri­bu­ted in de­fi­ning eve­ry de­tail and in de­ve­lo­ping eve­ry technical in­no­va­tion. Da­hlak has tur­ned out to be a uni­que and th­ril­ling ya­cht to sail”.
