Perini Navi Group announces the delivery of superyacht Clan VIII

Perini Navi Group announced the delivery of the sailing yacht Clan VIII, the 45 m sloop launched on September 6th. Clan VIII, the result of a collaboration between Perini Navi’s Design Team and Ron Holland, is the fourth of the steel-hulled 45-metre series delivered by the Perini Navi Group.

This sloop features all the hallmarks of Perini Navi yachts, including a spacious fly-bridge and the opening stern which reveals a structural staircase that descends to a 7m2 swimming platform which complements a lateral opening shell door on the yacht’s port side.

The Perini Navi-built mast rises 52 metres above the waterline and the vessel carries an upwind sail area of almost 900 m2. The centreboard affords a draft of 3.9 m with the board up to 8.75 m down and in conjunction with her efficient appendages - including a rudder with a relatively high aspect ratio - and large sail area provides the best possible sailing performance for this ocean cruising yacht boasting a particularly large internal volume.

The midship machinery space includes a single Caterpillar C32 820kW diesel main engine, which gives Clan VIII a 13.5 knot speed under power.

The interior of Clan VIII, designed in-house by the Perini Navi Design Department, is inspired by a classical yet contemporary allure where ebony and teak combine to create a truly elegant marine ambiance, thanks to the unmatched quality of the execution.
