ear Friends, It is with great pleasure that I present to you the latest issue of our magazine, Stream. As you may know, 2017 has been a year of great news for Perini Navi. First and foremost, the arrival of a new Shareholder. In May, the Tabacchi Family acquired 49.9% of the Company through an investment agreement with Faper Group. This was an extraordinary event, with two Italian Families and two Italian Companies joining forces to develop a leading global brand. On the occasion, I was appointed Chairman and CEO. I am honoured by the trust the two Shareholders have placed in me, and am confident that the fine group of people who are the backbone of Perini Navi will help me rise to the challenge, and that Perini Navi will have many prosperous years of success. It is not by coincidence that in the same month of May S/Y Sybaris was named "Sailing Yacht of the Year" at the prestigious World Superyacht Awards during a splendid ceremony in Florence. O N C E A GA I N , T H E W O R L D O F S U P E RYA C H T S H A S R E CO G N I S E D T H E G LO B A L E XC E L L E N C E O F P E R I N I N AV I A N D I T S C R E AT I O N S . During the Monaco Yacht Show, we are announcing our new “One Company, One Brand” which will be guiding us into the future, with the two current product lines – Sailing Yachts and Motor Yachts – all under the Perini Navi brand. It is a celebration of everything that Perini Navi stands for. Astounding history, award winning design with universal recognition. In this issue of Stream, we present two new projects: a 72m Falcon rig sailing yacht, and our new 50m Explorer, designed by Philippe Briand in the wake of the great success of M/Y Exuma, M/Y Galileo G and M/Y Grace E. We also feature an interview with our new shareholder Edoardo Tabacchi who has been appointed Vice Chairman of Perini Navi together with Faper Group Chairman and CEO Fabio Boschi, and interviews and portraits of success stories from the world of arts, business and architecture. As a tribute to our growing recognition in the Far East, we also present the work of two artists, Bo Bartlett and Zhao Kailin, in an East-meets-West collection of stunning works. We hope you enjoy this issue of Stream.

Bartlett was educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where realist principles must be grasped before modernist ventures are encouraged. He pushes the boundaries of the realist tradition with his multilayered imagery. Life, death, passage, memory, and confrontation coexist easily in his world. Family and friends are the cast of characters that appear in his dreamlike narrative works. Although the scenes are set around his childhood home in Georgia, his island summer home in Maine, his home in Pennsylvania or the surroundings of his studio and residence in Washington state, they represent a deeper, mythical concept of the archetypal, universal home." - Tom Butler, excerpt from the book Bo Bartlett, Heartland The first noble truth is: "there is suffering." The knowledge of this keeps one continuously on their toes. Any sadness or joy is tempered. Knowing that there is suffering grounds us in all of our emotions, even joy. Nothing is permanent. We are lucky and grateful for the time and space to create. One of the great joys of this realm is that we get to work in it. We are creative creatures and no one here knows what's next. My feeling is that we should work hard while we are here. We may not have such possibilities in other realms. How great that we have bodies (which age and creak) with which we can build and paint

“The key to contentment is trust. We have to trust something. We can build our houses (and studios) and fill them with technology (or not) where we can work and live and gather information. But there are natural laws. These win out every time. Things fall apart. Things age, we age, everything new grows old... or dies in the process. Nothing lasts. This isn't depressing; this is a reason to celebrate. Time has its way with us. We don't have to feign humility (there is nothing worse) as we age, we acquire humility naturally. Or rather, humility acquires us. The more time we spend in nature, away from the technology of the "civilized" world, the clearer we will be, the more clearly we will see what is, what the nature of reality is. Information, news, comes and goes, becomes out dated, passé, all the latest, on Facebook and twitter and social media blurs together into blathering babble. But, nature persists, in its ever changing wonder. I trust nature with all it's beauty, splendour and ferociousness.” - Bo Bartlett WHEN I WAS EIGHTEEN IN FLORENCE ITALY, I WAS VISITING THE GREAT ITALIAN FRESCO PAINTER PIETRO ANNIGONI. I ASKED HIM WHO I COULD STUDY WITH, WHO WOULD BE THE BEST TEACHER FOR ME. ANNIGONI LOOKED ME STRAIGHT IN THE EYES, SPEAKING IN ENGLISH BUT WITH A STRONG ITALIAN A CCENT, IN HIS DEEP B ARITONE VOICE, HE SLOWED DOWN A BIT SO AS TO EMPHASIZE HIS POINT AND MAKE SURE I WAS LISTENING, AND HE SAID... ‘LIFE IS THE G R E A T E S T T E A C H E R .’ Y E P

His studio is still in the same building in historic Milan where he grew up and where he lives, upstairs. A mishmash of scale models and shelves filled to the brim with books, from Croatian poetry compendiums to essays on Gio Ponti. And also endless rows of Domus and Abitare, the magazines he edited for such a long time; prints and awards on the wall, and the inevitable Flos Arco lamp to shed light over sketches and sheets of paper spread over his desk. This is Stefano Boeri: a creative powerhouse, whose passion comes in part from his mother, architect Cini Boeri, as well as from several revelations such as his visit, as an eighteen-year-old, to the Salk Institute in La Jolla; all these unusual associations give birth to projects awarded and exported all over the world. For example, “Bosco Verticale” (“Vertical Forest”). Symbol of a new kind of architecture, the project finds its roots in a novel he read in his youth, Calvino’s “Baron in the Trees”, and it is now being relaunched in China in an extra large version. In Milan, the two buildings with vertical gardens redefined the skyline and maybe also the basic principles of modern architecture, but north of Liuzhou it has become what has been called a “forest-city” with 30 thousand residents and most of all 40 thousand trees and almost a million plants. With the aim of absorbing 10 thousand tons of CO2 and 57 tons of particulates every year, as well as producing 900 tons of oxygen. A visionary, and somewhat revolutionary, project. Certainly not the only one.

ON THE CONCEPT OF URBAN FORESTATION”, EXPLAINS BOERI, “SO AS TO DEFEAT OUR ENEMY – POLLUTION – ON ITS OWN GROUNDS”. The “Green River” is just as ambitious: “a continuous system of parks, woods, oasis, orchards and gardens for public consumption, linked by green passageways with cycle lanes, over 90% of Milan’s seven rail yards”, says Boeri, whose idea of architecture as a service to the community is also somehow political – coming from someone who wanted to be Milan’s mayor. Milan, his great love and his city of choice. One of the current projects he is most proud of is for Milan’s Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico. And among the new architectures that contributed in changing the city’s face we should mention the Fondazione Prada by his friend Rem Koolhaas. Leaving the room, we are surrounded by the bustle and chatter of all the young architects crowding his studio, a creative workshop where Boeri, to his own admission, feels like a film director.

In Venice there is an ancient, hidden garden full of wonderful creatures: glass animals, whose twisted shapes shine in the sun with multi-coloured hues; ethereal and luxuriant crystal plants, poking through the flowerbeds. It is an unexpected, surreal yet beautiful landscape. The Deus ex machina behind this parallel universe is Lorenzo Passi, a young Venetian glass artist: in his solo exhibition Kosmos -50 unreleased sculptures which were on display until September 30th in the Loggia del Temanza, inside the garden of Palazzo Zenobio, on the occasion of the first edition of the Venice Glass Week– he imagines a world which has outlived the passage of mankind. “Kosmos” (“order” in ancient Greek) is the metaphor for a planet that we recognize, but which isn’t ours, inhabited by hybrid creatures which make up its flora and fauna,” explains curator Giovanna Maroccolo. “The narrative is inspired by the thoughts of Eraclitus: for the Greek philosopher, the law governing reality is manifest in the harmony of opposites. Here, the dualism between man and nature is represented by glass and metal”.

THE EAST Passi’s exhibition represents the conclusion of a wider project, born with the aim of creating a bridge between Italy and China. As Marco Polo before him, the young Venetian left to discover a new world and a new artistic frontier. The first stage of the exhibition was in Beijing, in July, with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute and AIHV, the International Association for the History of Glass. The artist created 50 works on site: “I stayed for almost a month in Boshan, a town 600 kilometres from Beijing with a four hundred year-old glassmaking tradition” he recalls. “It wasn’t an easy task, not least because of the exasperating heat and the communication barriers with the local people”. The result was worth the effort. The show was set up in an 800 square metre exhibition space, with sand islands, tree trunks and a lighting system designed ad hoc by light designer Michele Piazzi to simulate the alternation of day and night. “The passage from light to darkness reveals the double face of the exhibition”, explains the curator. “In darkness, the visitor has the feeling of being in another place, where the art works aren’t part of the landscape any more, but become the only sources of light, revealing

themselves in all their uniqueness and purity”. The exhibition elicited contrasting reactions in the Chinese public. “Visitors were intrigued by my work, but I don’t think they really understood the poetry behind what I had created, maybe because they are closer to traditional art works”, comments Passi; “most of them don’t even consider glass as an art form, and many don’t even know what Murano is. My challenge is to teach the Chinese how to appreciate contemporary glass art”.

THE WEST In Italy, Passi –who is only 32 years old- is considered a pioneer in the renewal of the Venetian glass tradition. Gallery owner Jean Blanchaert called him “the revelation of glass sculptors”. His artistic path started in 2009 by escaping (not only metaphorically) from the boundaries of classical aesthetic canons in search of “the beauty of imperfection”. After having learnt the secrets of the art of Murano glassmaking by working with the island’s most important masters of the craft, from Seguso to Zanetti, he abandoned Venice to attend the Nuutajärvi School in the renowned Finnish village of the same name. There he started developing his personal vision. “I like to think that traditional aesthetics can evolve in new directions”. His sculptures, where blown glass meets metal in a passionate embrace, earned a place in the Finnish Glass Museum, among other international recognitions. Yet, even in Italy it is no easy living for the young artist. “I’m the kind of person who marches to the beat of a different drum. My work is poised between art and handicraft, and my figure is quite distant from the classical idea of the Italian glass artist,” he admits. Observing the evolution of his work throughout the years, one can see a gradual but clear change. Before, glass was imprisoned in metal frameworks, now it has freed itself: steel structures lie around the sculpture like a discarded skeleton, leaving matter free to expand. “I started thinking bigger: I don’t want to simply create sculptures, but veritable worlds, putting in touch different disciplines such as light and sound design. Maybe the fact of breaking the iron armours that imprisoned my works is the sign of a personal liberation: I am ready for new discoveries. I am ready to overcome my limitations”.

The Rallo family, "wine artisans" as they like to define themselves with great passion, has been capable of trasforming style and public awareness of Sicilian wine in the world, with choices and investments that all point toward sustainability and energy saving. We even owe them the first nocturnal grape harvest. Today the face and voice of this reality is José, daughter of Giacomo and Gabriella.

Do you remember the first time you tasted wine? Of course! I must have been five or six years old. I was at my paternal grandparents' house; they were very proud of the family business and committed promoters of the culture of wine. I was only allowed a small sip though!

When did you understand that this would become your life? When I tutrned 19 I ran away from Sicily to find my own path in life, and fulfil myself as a person and as a working woman. Seven years later I came back for my future husband's sake and it was then that I started working at Donnafugata. It wasn't long since I realized I was deeply in love with wine. It also did not take me long to understand that wine is a whole universe, not only from a sensorial point of view, but also from a professional perspective. From business management to communication, I took care of every detail and I dare anyone to find a more interesting product!

How did you divide the various tasks between the family members? We are pretty lucky, each of us has specific talents different from the others, but this doesn't change the fact that strategic decisions are made together. My father Giacomo has been a man of great vision, an expert in marketing and international markets; my mother Gabriella has been the pioneer of Sicilian viticulture and has inspired and designed the beautiful Donnafugata labels; my brother is an agronomist and oenologist, he is meticulous about details, and today he also takes care of the most delicate commercial aspects; I have been in charge of business management and then shifted to marketing and communication: I also love to sing and set to music my wine presentations around the world: from New York’s Blue Note to Shanghai!

Do your two sons show an interest in the business? I cannot deny it. The wine world attracts them and they even had brief work experiences in our company. The path is still long for them though. They will have to finish their studies for which they have the most talent and spend some years working outside the family business. And at the end of this long ride they will be able to choose if their future is at Donnafugata or not. I believe the best thing is to make an informed choice.

Can you be a nondrinker in a family like yours? It is very hard. I would say almost impossible. My husband was when we first met. Today he is a passionate taster, curious and always looking to learn new things.

Wine isn't your only passion. No, it is not my only passion, but I often manage to combine two passions together. Such is the case with wine and music: it’s beautiful and fun to mix together the rhythm of the songs that I sing with the rhythm of wine: I’m thinking of samba that I love to pair with the fresh and vibrant Lighea from Zibibbo grape, or the sensual bossa-nova of Jobim that I sing and dedicate to the Ben Ryé Passito of Pantelleria, or a jazz ballads to suggest harmony and the embrace of the Mille e una Notte red wine.

Do you plan to introduce a new wine? We have many new wines in preparation! We expanded to the south-east of Sicily, at Vittoria and on the Etna. We completed our first grape harvests in 2016 and not long ago we came out with the Bell'Assai Frappato di Vittoria. A young red wine, to be served even chilled, very fruity with notes of raspberries and violets. In September we will present the Cerasuolo di Vittoria, made from Nero D'Avola grape and Frappato. The wine from Etna will be produced in 2018.

All this while respecting the environment. Where does this awareness, so relevant in our times, come from?

FROM THE VINEYARD TO THE BOTTLE, THERE ISN'T QUALITY WITHOUT SUSTAINABILITY. With this business philosophy, we adopted an integrated production system assuring an eco-friendly and sustainable management of all agricultural activities; we committed ourselves to energy saving and energy production from a photovoltaic plant; we have our carbonfootprint certified along the entire production cycle and we inform our consumers, disclosing this information on all of our labels. We state in a clear and verifiable way our company’s efforts for the continuous improvement of its environmental performances.

RICCARDO GUSMAROLI IS A POSITIVE, SENSITIVE, ORDERLY, INTUITIVE AND GENERALLY FUNNY ARTIST. HE STARTED HIS CAREER IN ART USING THE SIMPLEST OF OBJECTS: AN EGG, A PAPER BOAT, ORANGE WRAPPINGS, STAMPS, NEWSPAPERS. “SIMPLE OBJECTS ARE THE MOST EFFECTIVE”.

This is the underlying principle of his thought process. Art has to be understood at first glance. Simplicity however is open to interpretation and this generates numerous meanings. “The meaning of a painting is for me constantly changing, I can tackle a job one way one day and differently the following day.” Our internal and personal journey can make us be very closed and reserved, seeking the essential, or take us on a journey of discovery embracing people,

knowledge and methods. This is life. Simplicity is the culmination of essence, purity and truth but behind the truth lies a complex thought, idea and dialectic. The evolution of the orange wrappings were the maps, and the first artworks took shape in 1995. “Immigration has always been a theme I very much cared about and one of the first artworks was based on the outlineof a map of Sicily. 71

AND GOLD ARE KEY COLOURS I took it, folded it and cut it. If we were an island how would we be? I would like to understand what would have happened if I had been born in Sicily, or a different part of the world altogether, far away, distant. We are very lucky to be born in the West, where there are no wars. “The understanding or misunderstand of where we are than develops into the idea of people on the move, and transforms into the theme of travel. “Travelling has always been a fundamental part of what I do. Even if alone and from home. All you need is imagination and allowing oneself to be taken away by emotions, colours and places. Red and white are two colours I cannot renounce to because they guard the

72

deepest of meanings. The first is a symbol of love, passion, warmth; the second stands for simplicity and purity. Gold is also a key colour, so regal and historical. In my works, it signifies possibilities and opportunities. In my maps Italy is often in gold, because it’s my country, and even it has its problems, I still want to give it a chance.” My artworks do not have titles. I will not tell you what you are seeing. It’s one freedom you can take. Aesthetics are fundamental as they are the first step to connect with one of my pieces. I don’t enjoy seeing everything, that is why I leave home without my glasses, So I can imagine and fantasize. The less I see the more I can imagine.

STEVE FIRESTONE Learned to be a leader at a very young age. Steve was Captain of an 85-ft. schooner named Vltava, sailing the Seven Seas with the best crew in the world, 11 teenagers aged 14 to 19. By Edoardo Cela

It was 1976 when Steve’s father, Robert W. Firestone, a leading psychologist from Los Angeles, California, and a group of his friends from the area, decided that encouraging this group of teenagers to circumnavigate the globe on their own was the most likely way to turn them into well adjusted, prosperous, connected and caring adults, capable of achieving success, happiness and all the things parents aspire their kids to achieve. The journey took 17 months and by the time Vltava returned home, the ship, but most importantly its crew, had lived through numerous adventures, hardships, beautiful moments and, above all else, an incredible life changing experience and lesson. Fast forward to today and what was then a group of young men and women are now successful businessmen and women, philanthropists, psychologists, interior designers, and parents, who continue to share life closely. They have built lives together and their lives are very intertwined; some of them work together, some live together, and they all still sail together. Yachting and the ocean are two very important aspects of Steve’s life, and he has been the proud owner of his second Perini, Tamsen for quite a while. We spoke to him just after Tamsen’s 10-year anniversary to discuss life, family, growing up and, of course, life on and around his beautiful yacht.

STREAM: Arguably - because of your life experience - you grew into the man that you are today while sailing the seas. Do you feel that when you are sailing or very close to the sea you are in your natural element? STEVE FIRESTONE: I would say that at sea, I feel I am in my natural element. It is the time I am truly happiest and most content. Being in an environment of ever-changing and sometimes challenging conditions, that requires attention to the elements, makes me feel more alive. Additionally, sharing these experiences with close friends and family, working together towards a common goal is personally rewarding. This experience has influenced how I am, who I am, in my daily life.

STREAM: Would it be fair to say that your success in life is determined also by a deep understanding of human nature, which you learned while living in close quarters with other people for a long period of time on Vltava? STEVE FIRESTONE: Yes, unequivocally. Those days on the Vltava had a profound impact on me and everyone involved. Learning to live together at close quarters, communicate, and work well together as a team. So, yes, success in my life, both personal and in business, has been greatly influenced by the experiences from those early voyages.

STREAM: The bonds created in Vltava seem to be still very much part of your life both personal and professional. Do you think it was that experience that bonded you or the lives you built together after Vltava which made you grow even closer? STEVE FIRESTONE: What started with the Vltava became a way of life which has lasted for over forty years and continues on today. Not only do most of the original friends still participate in this life, it also now extends into new generations and people. It is difficult for me to separate the original Vltava adventures and the life we have continued to live together. The adventures that began with our early sailing have extended and evolved over the years through a series of boats, businesses, starting families and raising our children together.

STREAM: Do you consider yourself part of a close community? Is this part of your strength and why you have succeeded in your business and personal life? STEVE FIRESTONE: Yes, I am part of a very close-knit community of family and friends. Sharing life closely, sharing business involvement and traveling together has been extremely fulfilling for everyone. Personally, my participation in this way of living has given me confidence, strength, and definitely influenced my business and personal life in many positive ways.

V O Y A G E 21

STREAM: Is Tamsen a natural evolution from Vltava? STEVE FIRESTONE: Tamsen is the culmination and evolution of so many ideas and dreams from our years of boating and living experiences.

STREAM: How does life on Tamsen compare to life on Vltava? STEVE FIRESTONE: From a boating and sailing perspective, there are so many contrast and differences. On the Vltava, there was no auto pilot and very limited protection from the elements for the crew. Obviously, all sail handling was done by hand. Navigation was strictly celestial and communication consisted of a HAM Radio. We had very limited fresh water, no air conditioning and entertainment consisted of an eight-track cassette player. Tamsen is a truly different vessel and affords us with luxuries, conveniences and technological advances that we could not have even imagined back in the Vltava days. In some ways, we miss those early hardships. But in terms of life aboard Tamsen, with all of her vast improvements, we still have the same sense of adventure, community and sharing we enjoyed on Vltava.

STREAM: What are the favorite destinations you have visited with Tamsen and your favorite journeys so far? STEVE FIRESTONE: This is a question we are asked often and it is difficult to pick favorites as everywhere we go is unique. One area that stands out to me is the South Pacific. We all truly enjoy the variety of going to so many different parts of the world. Whether visiting somewhere we have been many times or exploring a new destination, in many ways, where we are serves as a backdrop for our life aboard the boat which is most important.

STREAM: What places would you still like to visit on Tamsen? STEVE FIRESTONE: There are still many places I would like to visit. Northern Europe, Scandinavia and South America come to mind. I would like to re-visit the Indian Ocean, specifically the Seychelles and Maldives as I have not been there since we were on the Vltava.

STREAM: Is a full ship your idea of happiness and harmony? STEVE FIRESTONE: Yes. In fact, I would say the more friends and family we can have on board, the better. Our experiences on board benefit all of us because we are taken away from the routines of our lives. One of my greatest pleasures is sharing this with my father. He is an inspiration to me and his energy for exploration and sharing adventures was the driving force behind the Vltava. His spirit is contagious to everyone and continues today.

STREAM: Is Tamsen your dream yacht? STEVE FIRESTONE: Tamsen has exceeded all of our dreams. Ten years after her launch I still admire everything about her. Sitting here, I can see her moored in the distance and am still impressed with her beauty - moved by the sight of her. So many aspects of her design are the result of an evolution of our efforts to make our on-board life more comfortable and practical at sea. Of course, It is always fun to think about improvements or bigger, newer, etc. however I would say that Tamsen completely satisfies all of us. She is our dream yacht.

From where did you draw your inspiration for the interior of Sybaris? Inspirations are a funny thing; they can be as distant as a childhood memory or as close as the book on my nightstand. My first source of inspiration for Sybaris came from the many sailing trips and casual conversations I had with Bill. He described his vision as a ‘floating’ art gallery and I used that concept as my jumping-off point. A distant influence perhaps came from my boyhood fascination with Jules Verne’s ‘Voyages Extraordinaires’ and the imagery those books conjured. My goal was to combine these various influences into a design that was both modern and slightly nostalgic.

What was the most challenging aspect of the Sybaris project? My biggest challenge? That is difficult to say but, being new to the world of yachting, there were regrettably many. My biggest hurdle perhaps was simply gaining the confidence to immerse myself in the process. Funnily enough I started by googling nautical terms. Words like: forecastles and midships, gunwales and lanyards were all new to me; I had heard them before, but I never really knew what they meant… still don’t probably.

What is the most different aspect of designing the interior of a sailing yacht compared with the interior of a home? The biggest difference between designing a yacht and a home is that one ‘moves’ and the other doesn’t. It is the difference between dressing a store mannequin and dressing Gisele Bundchen; the notion of movement or travel heightens the design experience. The dynamic nature of sailing impacts everything one designs whether it is lighting, bed orientation or stair direction; these were all new considerations for me.

What's the significance of the 'submarine' style doors to the cabins? The submarine doors are part of the steampunk subtext that runs throughout the interiors. For example, the large round rotating spoked handles are echoed in all the bathroom hardware. Do you have any new yacht projects on the drawing board? Nothing on the drawing board yet, but we are happily fielding several promising prospects. Please could you describe your first experience sailing onboard Sybaris – was it how you envisioned it would be? My first sailing experience onboard Sybaris was absolutely incredible. I was bombarded with a barrage of emotions. I experienced for the first time the sheer power and grace that Sybaris exudes. She’s fast, faster than I had imagined, and agile for her vast size. The truth is I was speechless, all I could do was to hold on and laugh… If you had to chose one word to describe Sybaris, what would it be? ‘Passion’ is the word I would use to describe Sybaris. 91

The winners of the World Superyacht Awards 2017 were announced at a glittering ceremony held at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence in May. S/Y Sybaris won awards for the Best Sailing Yacht over 40m and was crowned Sailing Yacht of the Year. At 70m in length, S/Y Sybaris was deemed by the World Superyacht Awards’ panel of judges to be, “designed to cruise the extremities of the world in comfort… a ground-breaking, world class sailing yacht, S/Y Sybaris came out on top,” when the judges counted the ballots. These are the words behind the motivation to the award: “S/Y Sybaris not only impressed the judges with its sailing ability – particularly in light airs when many yachts of this size resort to mechanical power – but also with its supreme comfort and optimum division of internal volume that entirely suits the owner’s needs. Some technical innovations have already been mentioned, but there are more: the sail plan, rig and underwater appendages were subjected to extensive CFD testing, which allowed detailed optimisation ... Beautiful, capable, comfortable and technically advanced, this is a yacht that was considered supreme for its purpose.”

A 72M BEAUTY WITH THE REVOLUTIONARY SAIL PLAN THAT POWERS THE MALTESE FALCON 110


N E W P R O J E C T 21

When the 88 metre Perini Navi yacht The Maltese Falcon was launched in 2006, her patented Falcon Rig, with its freestanding, rotating spars and rectangular sails, was revolutionary. Research showed that it could be easy to use and efficient, but it was only when Tom Perkins and Fabio Perini decided to use it to power The Maltese Falcon that the concept took off. The Falcon Rig was designed by Dykstra Naval Architects, Damon Roberts of Insensys and Perini Navi. Fabio Perini himself designed the concept to unfurl and tension the sails and wind them back into the masts. With carbon fibre and fibre optic sensor technology, roller furling sails, computer optimisation of sailing angles and reliable hydraulics, this rig allows safe, high average sailing speeds, excellent boat handling and easy instrument panel operation. Over a decade from her launch, The Maltese Falcon continues to turn heads wherever she goes. Perini Navi is pleased to present the design of a new 72m sailing yacht with two Falcon rig masts boasting a large aft beach deck with an opening transom as well as side platforms that make the entire aft section an open-air paradise from which to enjoy the sea in comfort and privacy.

THE OCEAN

IS SUFFERING IT IS TIME TO TAKE ACTION BY CLARE MAHON

As many of you may already know, the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda has recently launched a new project, the One Ocean Forum. Perini Navi is proud to be a corporate sponsor of this important initiative and has recently had the opportunity to speak with YCCS President the Princess Zahra Aga Khan and Commodore Riccardo Bonadeo about it. One Ocean Forum has been conceived as a moment for sharing, cooperating and raising awareness about environmental sustainability in the marine environment. Its aim is to open a dialogue on ocean sustainability by creating an international network of experts and identifying practices to help solve issues affecting the marine ecosystem. With Princess Zahra Aga Khan as President, Commodore Riccardo Bonadeo as Vice President and Jan Pachner as Secretary General, it’s easy to see how important this project is for the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda.

figures: anyone interested in creating an innovative and collaborative alliance in support of the environment. “Perini Navi supported One Ocean right from the start. Their corporate philosophy has always been open to innovation and new ideas and as an ‘ocean going’ company they know just what we’re talking about,” says Bonadeo. “Perini Navi’s support has been especially appreciated because their name gives extra impact to any project they are associated with.”

“People like us, sailors and yacht owners who live and work on the sea, know how threatened the marine environment is,” says Commodore Bonadeo from his YCCS office overlooking the beautiful waters off Porto Cervo. “We would like to give the oceans back some of what she has given to us. The enthusiasm that has greeted the launching of this project is proof of how many people have these issues at heart.”

The One Ocean forum is a series of conferences and workshops to address four main themes: global warming, pollution from plastics and microplastics, the marine ecosystem and acidification of the seas. The round tables are key to drafting the Carta Smeralda, a guideline of eco-sustainability principles that will be signed and lived by at the YCCS. “Our Carta Smeralda is an invitation to yacht clubs the world over to do as we have done,” says Bonadeo, “to study and implement the points in their day to day running that could be improved to reduce their impact on the environment around them. If all the yacht clubs in the world were to adopt these guidelines, it would be a huge step towards making an active contribution. We hope to spread our commitment to other yacht clubs, ambassadors and international figures.”

Sustainability has become one of the guiding principles of the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. “As a yacht club, we have had Milan’s famous Bocconi University do an in-depth study of our energy and materials consumption to draw up guidelines for best practice to improve our environmental model.” After the audit and the evaluation of current practices a sustainability report was consigned that showed the Club the best practices to adopt in terms of environmental protection throughout its various sectors and activities. But the YCCS has taken things a step further. With the SDA Bocconi Sustainability Lab as Scientific Partner, the YCCS has created a forum on marine conservancy: One Ocean. The One Ocean Forum promotes cooperation, awareness and knowledge sharing and will be held yearly. Participants will include scientific and nonprofit organisations, businesses, media, influencers and international

President of the YCCS Board, Princess Zahra Aga Khan, is a strong supporter of the project: “It’s time to add our voice to the global conversation on ocean conservancy and protecting the seas of our world. All of us who’ve lived on the sea and around the sea have noticed massive changes in the last 50 years: increases in pollution and plastics everywhere, flora and fauna being affected by a degrading marine habitat. We have to do something now to allow our children to inherit seas and oceans that in any way resemble those that we knew as children.” “But every yacht owner can make a difference,” adds Bonadeo. “The larger the yacht the bigger the difference I’d say. From deciding which materials to bring on board, how and where to dispose of solid waste, how to treat waters aboard. Even little things make a difference and setting a good example with best practice will have a positive effect on everyone.” 125

EDOARDO TABACCHI "The ocean is a magical place where man’s passion encounters nature. It is precious. For this reason we have a moral obligation to protect it".

LAMBERTO TACOLI “Perini Navi has always lead the way when in comes to research. From the design of our yachts, to attention our detail as it relates to environmental sustainability and we will continue to invest considerable resources in these areas.  It is fundamental to work together to find technological solutions to protect the marine environment”.
