Perini Navi and their design innovations are principally responsible for revitalizing large sail. Their invention of the captive reel winch and computerized sail handling systems has made it possible to handle a 150' to 300' world cruising sailing yacht with a relatively small crew. These developments have sparked a revolution in the modern sailing yacht and made superyacht sail a reasonable alternative to the power yacht equivalent.
Perini builds custom one-off designs as well as semi-custom series designs. Working closely with Ron Holland they have become one of the most prolific builders of world cruising sailing yachts. It is difficult to know where Holland's aesthetic leaves off and Perini's begins but it is clear that this marriage of design concepts works and has produced a plethora of designs which are at the forefront of superyacht sail.
