2014 Monaco Yacht Show Debut for S/Y ‘Perseus 3’

The recently launched 60m/197ft Perini Navi sailing yacht ’Perseus 3’ will be making her show debut at this year’s upcoming Monaco Yacht Show.

The eagerly awaited ‘Perseus 3’ was launched from the Perini Navi Viarregio shipyard at the end of June, representing the second vessel in the acclaimed Italian builder’s new generation 60m series. Her predecessor, the award-winning luxury charter yacht ‘Seahawk’ was one of the most talked about superyachts at last year’s event, and she looks set to follow in her footsteps for the Monaco Yacht Show 2014.

Reaching the highest levels of design, construction and engineering, ‘Perseus 3’ is the result of a collaboration between Perini Navi and Ron Holland and shows a significant step forward in cutting-edge technology following the success of the builder’s 56m series.  Ensuring outstanding performance on the water, she features an ultra-lightweight 75m carbon fibre mast as well as the new generation of captive reel winches and furlers.

Her interior was designed in-house and offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in five staterooms including a full-beam master suite. ‘Perseus 3’ also includes a full range of facilities to include two opening beach platforms, an infinity pool and two custom tenders. It is not yet known whether ‘Perseus 3’ will be made available for charter, in the meantime take a look at the fantastic Perini Navi-built charter yachts that are.

	From ancient Greek times to the end of the Roman era, the rocky promontory and natural harbour of Monaco have adorned the pages of history books. The palace was built shortly after Monaco became established in the 12th century, beginning as a fortress to protect itself against pirates.</p>
<p>
	On Monaco&#39;s return to the Grimaldi family later in 1814, the palace was in dire need of restoration - a task which Prince Rainier expertly handled, restoring its lost glory to its current state, admired by many from near and far. From June to October you can visit the palace and marvel at is royal courtyard, paved with 3 million white and coloured pebbles which create beautiful geometric patterns. 16th century frescoes depicting scenes from mythology adorn the walls, surrounded by tall columns and a double-revolution staircase which create a sight which is truly not to be missed.&nbsp;</p>
