“The one over there is a Perini. I am sure!”
practical to put into practice, have been installed in the recent 42 metre project E-volution which while representing state of the art electric propulsion, is nevertheless within Perini’s logic. The logic – if we have not misunderstood – also aims to satisfy potential clients that come to you not looking for just a marvellous yacht, but ‘just’ want a marvellous Perini yacht. Yes that’s exactly it. According to me there are two ways of handling the issue: the first one is that you go off to a shipyard to have a yacht built exactly as you have envisaged it. The second way is that you go to that specific yard because you want that kind of product, that style, that name. There are few companies that have managed to impose themselves like this and anyway they generally build substantially small yachts. I’m thinking Riva, with the famous Aquarama. I‘m thinking about Pershing, but setting modesty aside for a moment, in the large yacht segment – there’s no doubt they call us Perini Navi (Navi means Ships edn.) perhaps we’re the only ones. Si in actual fact what you were saying earlier is perfectly correct: you notice a boat on the horizon and you can say without question or even a shadow of doubt ‘that is a Perini’. Best proof of what I’m saying is, can be found black on white among the specifics written by our clients’ surveyors, when on the theme of certain details concerning a new project, they jot down notes ‘like the Perini Ashi’, ‘like the Perini Maltese Falcon’, ‘like the Perini Such and Such’. That’s the unequivocal sign that our yachts teach, and each one becomes a point of reference. All this surely makes your relationship with visiting parties at a venue for example at the MYS (Monaco Yacht Show)when you are literally surrounded by the competition. Well I want to tell you about what actually happened in Montecarlo one year. It is a true store I was eye witness to and it made me understand a lot about this world. At the time this episode took place I had been in the company for only four months and while we were having lunch at the Yacht Club, the day before the official opening, the restaurant was packed to the hilt, also because many people wanted to watch the yachts as they came in port for the MYS. A lot of big important brands went by – Dutch, German ones, and Italian ones obviously – and we were trying our best to catch comments. At a certain moment the room went dead quiet. Everyone literally stood up and dashed off to the terrace to take pictures. Sybaris was making her entry, our 70 metre ketch. As it slipped by showing her stern, there was a real ovation. I wouldn’t have thought it possible hadn’t I seen it with my own eyes. After having recovered from the surprise I asked several people the reason for their spontaneous enthusiasm. The words they used more often were the following: elegance, design, cleanliness, beauty.
