The World’s Sleekest Sailing Charter Yacht: Seahawk from Perini Navi
There is nothing more beautiful to an ocean lover than a vision of silver sails against the blue, and Perini Navi never lost sight of this vision. The Italian yacht makers, working alongside Christian Liaigrie created a sailing yacht that is truly a masterpiece – the 60m Seahawk.
Boasting 5 cabins and a crew of 11, this striking vessel has been hailed as one of the sexiest yachts in the world and for good reason. Externally she is an architectural delight with two aluminium masts, carbon fiber booms, and rigging that lights up the horizon with its bright red coloring. Yet, Seahawk is more than just a pretty face, her captive reel winches, strong yet light aluminum hull and new flush deck furlers showcase a new era in innovative superyacht construction.
Spacious outdoor decking offers lots of lounging space bedecked in cream and nautical blue, the ultimate marine inspired design. The foredeck is an endless array of sofas for soaking up those impressive vistas, and the aft deck is equally wide open for guests to feel the sea air touch their skin. The swim platform is also the perfect diving off point for morning saltwater swims or returning from an afternoon taking the water skis or paddleboards out to play.
Despite the slender hull, Seahawk feels beautifully light and airy, a feeling that seeps into every aspect of her stunning design. There is a touch of warmth and French finesse woven throughout the interior, with an open plane salon, glass walls, dark and natural touched tones and oversize sink down sofas as the key feature. Large windows invite the light to soak into the wooden floors and ensure that sea views are accessible from every angle.
The central staircase leads down to the guest cabins comprising of two doubles and two twins along with the impressive master suite. All cabins are sleek and sumptuous offering tempting white beds set against darker hues and rich materials. The master cabin is by far the most masculine affair with contrasting wood tones filtering throughout the sleeping, lounging, vanity and office areas. All rooms boast their own ipad minis, crew call buttons, lavish entertainment features, and lighting and window shade control.
Overall, Seahawk has all the makings of being a regatta star – her external prowess married with the contemporary design ensures that she stands up to her award-winning name. Sailing the kiss of the Caribbean or the sultry shores of the Mediterranean on the world’s sexiest yacht is surely something to write home about. Summer and winter charter rates start at $286,000 per week plus expenses,
