Perini Navi Group announced the delivery of SY Clan VIII: 45m sloop, the 53rd unit in the fleet.
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 flybridge 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.
