Founder of Perini Navi, creator of "Maltese Falcon", puts personal yacht up for sale / by Ryan


Famed yacht design firm Perini Navi is responsible for one of the most stunning and technologically advanced sailing yachts of modern history, the Maltese Falcon. Most have seen the stunning interior pictures of her online, and some have even seen the nasty pictures of her collision with a smaller sailing vessel. If not, check out the gallery at the bottom of the post! From the Luxist...

The firm [Perini Navi] was founded in the early 1980s by dashing yachtsman Fabio Perini who wanted a large sailing yacht that was modern, stylish, fast and relatively easy to sail. He revolutionized the world of sailing superyachts in the process, and one of the very first Perini Navi yachts he built for himself, in 1987.

You can now own a piece of history, as the owner has put this beautiful yacht, the 80 foot Elettra up for sale for the low price of $3 million. It is offered by Camper & Nicholsons International. They describe her as follows...

Originally built for Mr Fabio Perini - founder of the famous yard - she has recently benefited from a total refit of all sailing systems by the builders and has been the subject of constant upgrades / improvements under current ownership, "ELETTRA" now appears to be in superb condition throughout. A fantastic opportunity to acquire a beautiful/ ready to sail piece of history from the iconic Perini yard and become a part of this elite group of owners.
