Perini Navi wins two awards at the 2017 World Superyacht Awards


Superyacht Sybaris has won the ‘Sailing Yacht of 40m and above’ and ‘Sailing Yacht of the Year’ awards at the 2017 World Superyacht Awards.

The Perini Navi 70m yacht won at the Sala dei Cinquecento at Palazzo Vecchio in Florence on Saturday.

Sybaris was designed by Perini Navi and French Naval Architect Philippe Briand.

“We are proud of the passion and dedication of our team. Our management, employees and suppliers have dedicated their utmost to this outstanding yacht,” commented Fabio Boschi, chairman of Perini Navi.  “Each year, the World Superyacht Awards recognise distinctiveness, creativity and innovation – qualities that characterise Sybaris, the jewel of our fleet, and all of the yachts we have delivered to date. Perini Navi’s focus is on excellence particularly as it relates to technology, presentation, design and comfort. Likewise, we are very pleased with the success that we have achieved and will continue to aim higher, also in the light of the recent agreement we have signed with our new shareholders.”

“These awards are the symbol of a wonderful collaboration of passionate dreamers, artists and artisans who created a work of art and engineering,” added Bill Duker, owner of the Perini Navi 70m S/Y Sybaris.
