73m Grace E Launched from Picchiotti Shipyard

The Perini Navi Group has launched Grace E, the new 73m Picchiotti motor yacht that is the third motor yacht sold by the Perini Navi Group, at their Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia, Italy.

Grace E, like her predecessors Exuma and Galileo G, is part of the Group’s project for relaunching the historic Picchiotti brand name in the world of large motor yachts.

Grace E has the same hull and superstructure design elements that both characterize the rest of the Picchiotti Vitruvius® series and assure efficient and autonomous navigation. Grace E has an advanced diesel-electric propulsion system with two Azipod propellers, electronically activated propellers that are mounted on a movable support called a pod, that allow the yacht to reach a cruising speed of 16.5 knots. Grace E is also equipped with a variety of tenders for the exploration of the surrounding environment.

The 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.

The 73m yacht will be delivered by the end of the year 2013.
