3rd Sep 2013

Camper & Nicholsons' impressive sailing yachts, the award-winning 50m (164') Silencio came in first and the 56m (183'7) Parsifal IV finished third position overall at the recent biennial Perini Navi Cup.

The fifth edition of the biennial Perini Navi Cup took place from 28-31 August off the breath-taking coastline of Sardinia.

Hosted by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, this year’s event featured an impressive line-up of a selection of 18 of the best sailing yachts ever built by the renowned Perini Navi builders. Displaying the latest in technological innovation and unbeatable sailing performance, Camper & Nicholsons were proud to represent the award-winning 49.80m (164’) Silencio who came an impressive first in both races. Silencio whispers exclusivity throughout her elegant exterior and interior, and sparked a buzz during the three days of intense racing, beating her own record with excellent sailing performance due to a recent refit and brand new sails. Available both for sale and charter with Camper & Nicholsons, she brings yet another award to her existing sailing accomplishments.

Also to make the podium in third place was the fourth ketch in the Perini Navi 56m series, the award-winning Parsifal IV.
