Future Fibres standing rigging comprises Carbon fibre for the laterals, while the fore and aft stays are made of a combination of Carbon, PBO and Kevlar.

Luxury yacht PERSEUS³ will feature an exclusive Rig Load Monitoring System that through a series of strain gauges constantly detects the loads acting on the rig components.

The Sail wardrobe of Perseus 3 yacht, in the words of Robbie Doyle, founder of Doyle Sail Maker: “is one of the most unique and challenging ever created”.

The dimensions of the asymmetricals and the Code 0 are such that the fabric available on the market was not capable of providing the necessary characteristics of strength and lightness, therefore special new fabrics were created after extensive R&D activities.

The complete sail set exceeds 10,000 square metres, among which the A2 with its 2,602 square metres is the largest sail ever built.

For the handling and control of the impressive sailing system, Perseus^3 features the new generation of Perini Navi captive winches and furlers. The Jib winches pull a maximum load of 30 tonnes and have a maximum line speed of 40 metre per minute. Electric variable speed motors and furlers, duly synchronised and monitored by the Perini Navi Automated Sail Handling System, dramatically improve furling and deploy times while speeding the tacking and jibing time by over 75% compared to vessels of the previous generation.
