In a mix of announcements at the Monaco Yacht Show, Italian superyacht-builder Perini Navi gave details of new orders, a rebranding and new co-operations with leading designers.
The company highlighted the new 60m (197ft) sailing superyacht Seven, which is the third example of the range of 60m superyachts after Seahawk and Perseus.
Perini Navi also announced the sale of an additional sailing yacht of 60m, which will become the fourth vessel of the series, and the signing of a letter of intent for a 42m (138ft) sailing yacht.
