Luxury sailing yacht Felicita West, built in 2003 by Italian shipyard Perini Navi is one of the world’s largest and fastest all-aluminium sailing yachts. Her naval architect was Ron Holland Design, while she features interior and exterior design by Nuvolari & Lenard.
This comfortable and modern superyacht measures 64 metres and can accommodate up to 12 guests.
Sailing yacht Felicita West is the second sailing yacht built for her owner who previously built a 43 metre Perini ketch and is a personal vessel in every aspect, designed specifically to cater for the owner’s family cruising requirements. A desire for size and sailing speed within a traditional-looking yacht was expressed and the result is a spacious sailing yacht with an emphasis on outdoor spaces.
The vessel lacks the trademark dark-blue hull most Perini yachts carry but sports main and mizzen masts that tower some 60 and 51 metres respectively above the waterline that more than draw the eye. She underwent an extensive five year refit which now sees her proudly exhibiting new sails, paintwork and a whole range of technical improvements.
