The talk of the luxury sailing yacht market these days is the 197-foot Perini Navi Seahawk, the first in the Italian builder's 60-meter series. She was delivered to her owners in November, and Perini Navi now says the yacht will go into charter in the Caribbean starting in mid-February.

Seahawk is the second new Perini Navi to go into charter in about a year's time. Also now accepting inquiries in the Caribbean is the 131-foot State of Grace, also a 2013 launch, listed with YCO.

Bookings for Seahawk are being done through Perini Navi. The yacht will be available in the British Virgin Islands and northern Caribbean, particularly around Antigua and St. Barth's. Available dates will be February 20 through March 10, give or take a few days depending on delivery times. The next opportunity to charter Seahawk will be this summer, when she is expected to have limited availability in the Mediterranean.

The lowest weekly base rate is €225,000 (about $307,000 with the conversion rate as of this writing) for as many as 12 guests aboard Seahawk. Learn more at www.perininaviusa.com.
