Less than a year after the acquisition of the historic Perini Navi and Picchiotti brands, The Italian Sea Group, a global operator in the luxury nautical sector, hosted the territory’s leading authorities at a cocktail party celebrating both the first Perini Navi refit at the Viareggio headquarters and the restart of all production activities at the site.
The 53-metre sailing yacht Jasali II launched in 1998 and is one of the most iconic in the Perini Navi fleet, will remain at the Perini Navi site in Viareggio until April 2023 for a general survey and redesign of the exterior, activities carried out by NCA Refit brand of the TISG Group and supervised by the yacht’s Captain Danilo Lo Bianco, a historical figure in the Perini Navi fleet.
Production of the S/Y 60m Katana, whose activities resumed immediately after the brand’s acquisition, also proceeded quickly and in accordance with the Group’s high-quality standards. In addition to Perini Navi activities, the Viareggio site will also see the return of the Picchiotti brand with the production of the Gentleman’s yacht fleet, in addition to the facility’s production capacity for Perini Navi orders.
Work is also being finalised on the new Perini fleet, completely innovative in terms of both style and sailing, in line with the plan for the continuity and development of sailing yacht production at the Viareggio site. The new fleet will be made official in February 2023.
“I am very proud to have here today an icon of Perini Navi history, the 53mt Jasali II, an important return to the territory and a tangible sign of continuity,” says Giovanni Costantino, Founder & Ceo of The Italian Sea Group. “In 2023 we will complete the refurbishment and rebranding of this site by completing the TISG 4.2 investment plan, which also includes the expansion and renovation of the Marina di Carrara headquarters and the La Spezia site, where the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 production has been completely transferred.”
