The Perini Navi shipyard in Italy, long renowned for its sailing yachts, has announced a Heritage line of motoryachts designed with Zuccon International Project.
Three models are part of the initial offering, in lengths overall of 180, 213 and 246 feet. All three designs were presented at the recent Monaco Yacht Show.
“The new projects are each intentionally driven by Perini’s experience in the world of sailing yachts,” Bernardo Zuccon stated in a press release. “The very name of the range, Heritage, clearly signals our desire to draw on the culture of the shipyard, not least through the recovery of various style elements and by respecting a particular concept of life on board.”
Those style elements include an emphasis on outdoor spaces, Zuccon added.
“We’ve taken various elements from the world of sailing and transferred them to the motoryachts, not least the distribution of the spaces and their function,” he stated. “The hull’s lines and powerful styling are therefore what define the architectural object, as is the case on a sailing boat, where the hull is the key feature and the superstructures are seen almost on a par with accessory components.”
Inside, guest spaces will allow indoor areas to “come into contact” with natural elements including plants and water, the yard says. Showcases will contain bamboo plants, pools and waterfalls.
Why does the name Zuccon International Project sound familiar? The design firm has worked with motoryacht brands including CRN, Custom Line and Ferretti Yachts.
