Sailing Yacht RIELA, the 56m aluminium ketch, is Perini Navi’s 46th unit in their superyacht fleet.

Both masts, the 58.8m main mast and the 48.26m mizzen, are also in aluminium, while the furling boom is in carbon fibre. Total sail area is expected to reach 1,500 m².

The interiors of sailing yacht RIELA were designed by Remi Tessier. They are based on luxury and elegance combined with contemporary style, which is reflected in the use of a wide and rich variety of precious and refined materials; woods such as macassar, ebony, wengè, teak and leather.

Sailing Yacht RIELA is the seventh 56m sailing yacht launched by Perini Navi with the first being the 56m, Burrasca, which was launched in 2003, and was then followed by Santa Maria (now Zenji), Rosehearty, Selene, Salute and Silvana.

In the next 24 months another 3 units will be built in this same series by Perini Navi, with similar naval architecture and fully customized interiors.

Besides the 56m series, Perini Navi’s production plan will include two 45m steel sailing yachts, a 38m in Sealium an aluminium alloy, one 59m sailing yacht and two motor yachts: a 50m and a 55m in the new Vitruvius series, a project that will re-launch the Picchiotti historical brand in the world of luxury yachting.
