Luxury Charter Group attended the MYBA Genoa Charter Show, April 27 to 30, and spent time aboard PERSEUS^3 (pronounced “Perseus Cubed”), noting her as one of the standout yachts, among over 50 superyachts on show, ready for the 2015 summer Mediterranean charter season.
Measuring 60m (197ft), she's the second of Perini Navi's 60M Series, created with Ron Holland Design. The series was created to boost both volume and performance, characteristics which won't be wasted on her connoisseur clientele.
The interiors were designed in house by Perini interior design and the décor is a stimulating blend of traditional timber with sophisticated urban details.
The spacious main saloon comprises a theatre-screen lounge area, formal dining for 12 around a magnificent table featuring patterned inlay, and even a piano for accompaniment.
Guests will enjoy sumptuous dining and entertaining on deck as well. The undercover aft deck is ideal for informal meals and cocktails, and there are sun lounges on the transom to take advantage of the Mediterranean and Caribbean climates. An extended aft platform gives easy access to the water.
On the flybridge, there's more seating and sun pads for soaking up the rays by the Jacuzzi.
PERSEUS^3 can accommodate up to 12 charter guests in sheer luxury within five or six staterooms and marble ensuites. One of the interior highlights is the convertible master suite. The full-beam stateroom contains a sliding wall that can split it into two cabins. It boasts a king sized bed, lounge area, desk and ensuite Jacuzzi bath and steam shower.
Both VIP staterooms have queen beds. The starboard queen includes a bath and the port side queen stateroom includes a shower. Both twin staterooms have two singles and one pullman in each, with the opportunity of combining both of the twin cabins beds into queen beds. Adding to the feeling of space and elegance, ceiling heights area generous 2.15m or 7 feet in most areas.
Amenities include Italian cotton linens, safes and hairdryers and bathrobes in all staterooms, as well as various toiletries and skincare.
PERSEUS^3 is remarkable for her series of "firsts", which include a 248'7" (75.8m) mast height, among the tallest in the world, 76'8" (23.4m) boom, 111,342-square-foot (10,344-square-meter) sail area, 30 percent larger than the ketch-rigged SEAHAWK, the first of the 60m Series that launched before her, and a 19,418-square-foot (1,804-square-meter) Code Zero, on the biggest torque cable TDF that Future Fibres has manufactured!
As for performance, on sea trials PERSEUS^3 clocked just over 16 knots in 21-knot winds. Also on the technical side, PERSEUS^3 features a carbon fibre, rather than aluminium, bowsprit, which is a first for Perini Navi.
Along with various board games and electronic games, guests can access movies and music with the Kaleidescape and Apple TV Entertainment system, plus iPod and iPad connectivity throughout the yacht. PERSEUS^3 even offers her own newspaper printing service!
For fitness, there is a 5.5m Endless Pool Spa on the foredeck with Jacuzzi, stationary bike, weights and yoga mats. Massage can be arranged on request.
PERSEUS^3 carries two custom designed and built 6.2m carbon fibre Custom Constellation tenders, a speedboat seating five, and a Utility Tender seating 12, as well as a compliment of water sports gear and toys for the active charter guest: stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, wakeboards, water skis with slalom, a 6-person banana and other inflatables, 6m waterslide and snorkelling equipment. In addition, there are eight sets of dive gear and a fully equipped dive compressor with Nitrox. PERSEUS^3 offers charter guests rendez-vous diving with local operators only.
Captain David Hutchison, chef Raya Hutchison and crew are eager to welcome her first guests aboard this summer to experience what will be a truly unique luxury charter experience.
PERSEUS^3 is now accepting bookings for charters June- September in the Mediterranean, in the Caribbean from December 2015 – March 2016, and again in the Med during the Summer of 2016.
