The Perini Navi Group, world leader in designing and constructing large motor and sailing yachts, is pleased to announce delivery of the the 180-foot superyacht GALILEO G, the second of three motor yachts sold to date by the Perini Navi Group’s Picchiotti division.
The delivery took place at the Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia in the presence of representatives of the company that owns the yacht and the shipyard’s team. After formalities, Galileo G’s crew proceeded with the flag changing ceremony.
The Picchiotti Galileo G from the Vitruvius® series has been designed and built according Ice Class classification rules for navigation along the Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans through Canada’s Arctic Archipelago.
The fundamental concepts behind the yacht project were born from a collaboration between Vitruvius Ltd, Philippe Briand and the Perini Navi Group. These are expressed mainly in the hull and superstructure, in the arrangement of on-board spaces and in the abundance of tenders and toys for the exploration and discovery of the yacht’s environment.
The third motor yacht in the Picchiotti Vitruvius series, the 240-foot MY C.2189 is scheduled to arrive in La Spezia in early 2012. Here it will be finished after initial hull construction is completed at the Perini Istanbul-Yildiz shipyard. The yacht is scheduled to be consigned in the first half of the year 2013.
The Perini Navi Group will be presenting Sailing Yacht P2, a 38m sloop from their Racing Line, and Sailing Yacht Antara, a 46m ketch at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 27th to 31st.
