SPOTD: Perini Navi Launches the Grace E Superyacht

Perini Navi Group Grace E Picchiotti

Perini Navi’s latest beauty, the 73 meter Azipod-powered Grace E was launched today from their Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia.  She shares the same hull and super structure design elements that characterize the rest of the Picchiotti Vitruvius-series yachts such as the Exuma and the arctic-ready Galileo-G.

With features more suited for cruising in the Mediterranean or in the Caribbean, Perini Navi notes this new motor yacht has been designed for autonomous and energy efficient cruising in comfort and safety. Exterior spaces are divided over five decks. The Upper Deck, also called the Wellness Deck, has an area that is entirely devoted to wellness with a gym, a sauna and hydrotherapy equipment. The interiors, designed by Remi Tessier, are elegant and contemporary.

Perini Navi notes the Grace E is equipped with a diesel-electric propulsion system including two Azipods that allow the yacht to reach a cruising speed of 16.5 knots.
