Perini Navi

Heading through Italy on my way to watch the Vendee Globe in November... stopped in Viareggio to look at a boat, unbeknownst to me the town was home to Perini Navi as well as Azimut boatyards... good LORD what beautiful boats!

Just managed to get this one shot. Ciao!

Re: Perini Navi

Perini Navi has always been a Dream Boat for me. So many of them are stunnng to see.

I shared an outstanding video of one on my Facebook stream. It shows a large beautiful boat from all angles with cool drone or aerial flyovers. Very cool video I really enjoyed. Watch it if you can. Here is a link.

Re: Perini Navi

Wouldn't want to own one (would love to have the cash it takes), but instead crew for a bit. Something like a quick jump from the Med to the Caribbean

A good friends son had a year after graduating from college before his Air Force pilot training slot began and was trying to figure out whether to begin a masters degree program or what other options he might pursue. I suggested that he should temporarily become a boat bum and he liked that idea so headed for the Caribbean, where wandering the docks/pubs of Antigua he met the first mate of Berlusconi's Perini Navi and as luck would have it, they needed a deck hand and he got the job. As the junior member of the crew it was his responsibly to be in charge of the "toys" so that meant that when Berlusconi's daughter (working as a model at the time) and her friends showed up for a vacation aboard he was the one who had to take them waterskiing, etc. and when they went into town he was the dinghy driver so had to go along too. Contrary to what you might expect, the Berlusconi's were very nice people and rather than expecting him to cool his heels at the dock when ashore would invite him to join them for dinner or whatever else they were doing. And when his year ended and he had to leave, Berlusconi had him flown back to New England in his private jet. He had a VERY good year!

Re: Perini Navi

Floating wardrobes but truly nice finish. Sort of like Harley Davidson bikes - extremely high bling factor.

I like them too but very many are too stacked up. Like you took a beautiful motor yacht and added masts.

Great luxury statement objects. Probably equivalent to the Dutch jewels.

Re: Perini Navi

They are sail boats. They heel. They race. They are elegant designs.
