Perini Navi is one of the biggest names in top-quality sailing yachts, and several of the builder’s best-known launches have just announced open calendars for holiday bookings this winter in the Caribbean.
One is the iconic 289-foot Maltese Falcon, which takes 12 guests with 18 crew and is being advertised for “long-term Caribbean charters to include holidays.” In industry-speak, that usually means something along the lines of a two-week minimum to secure the coveted Christmas and New Year’s dates.
Another is the recently launched 196-foot Seahawk, taking 12 guests with 11 crew. She’s been making a name for herself on the regatta circuit, and I hear that her Christian Liaigre interior decor is among the nicest on the water right now. That means a combination of great sailing and comfort at night.
Yet another noteworthy Perini Navi option is the brand-new, 196-foot Perseus3, which also takes 12 guests with 11 crew. She is fresh from the shipyard and being on display at this month’s Monaco Yacht Show, which means you literally cannot get a Perini any newer than her for the winter holiday charter season.
Perini Navi is not publicizing the weekly base rates for these yachts, but any reputable charter broker can give you details.
