In a few days, the world’s finest sailing yacht fleet will gather in the pristine waters of St. Barthélemy to participate the St. Barths Bucket Regatta 2015.
Started over 25 year ago as weekend party in Nantucket, over the years the Bucket has grown into the most prestigious Corinthian spirited superyacht regatta in the world. Perini Navi together with Royal Huisman, Vitters and Rybovich are now the stewards of the Bucket and this year’s edition will have 36 participants divided into four categories: les Gazelles des Mers, les Grandes Dames des Mers, Les Mademoiselle des Mers and les Elegantes des Mers. Perini Navi fleet will be represented by 6 yachts: the 38m sloop P2 in the Gazelle des Mers category and the 54m ketch Parsifal III, the 56m ketch Rosehearty, the 60m ketch Seahawk, 40m sloop State of Grace and the 56m Zenji in the Grand Dames class.
With a fleet of 59 yachts on the water, 56 sailing yachts and 3 motor yachts, the Perini Navi Group is the world leader in the design and construction of large sailing yachts. In 2007 the Group also began to build motor yachts with the brand name Picchiotti, thus re-launching the historic Picchiotti shipyard acquired in the early 1990’s. The Group is made up of the Perini Navi shipyard in Viareggio, founded in the 1980’s by Fabio Perini who invented and developed a revolutionary automatic sail control system, and the Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia where the Group constructs its motor yachts and concentrates most of its refitting and repairing work. The Perini Istanbul-Yildiz shipyard in Turkey is where the Group’s hulls and deck structures are produced. Additionally, Perini Navi USA is a commercial division of the Group through which owners of Perini Navi Group yachts can arrange charters and find brokerage services for both new and previously owned Perini Navi Group yachts.
