Felci 65 sailing yacht is born from the needs expressed by an owner to create a unique yacht able to participate with great potential for high-altitude racing and at the same time to be perfect for comfortable and relaxing cruises.
“These are the inputs that led our new Felci 65 project,” says architect Felici, named Umberto Felci, a prominent name in the design of the “fast sails” that together with the now consolidated worldwide excellence in the construction of technologically advanced Persian yachts Marine they are about to create one of the most advanced sailboats in the world.
From the sleek design Felci 65 is an innovative fast high tech cruiser featuring Italy. In fact, it is the first time that Persico Marine is building a yacht designed entirely by an Italian. Two Italian excellences that have been found to make this yacht really special. The 20 meters long boat is the result of a compromise between resistance and stability of shapes for a certain displacement to 18.5 tonnes.
The hull is very fashioned to achieve the best performance,with lifting kell in stainless steel with the draft ranging from 2.75 to 4.4 meters.
The bridge is characterized by maximum ergonomics. The shaft is in high modulus carbon, along with almost all sail equipment. The interior is bright thanks to the low profile windows in the deck. To ensure maximum privacy on a cruise, when you do not compete, the cabin and guest cabin are separate from those reserved for the crew.
The owners of this boat issued the following statements: “We started off with a white sheet of paper, so we could really develop something special, which could bring technologically and aesthetically innovative elements to the cruiser racer “I am very excited about our new project,” says Marcello Persico, Persico Marine’s CEO, as the perfect DNA expression of Persico Marine. We have been working for several months with Felci to get the highest level of performance, along with the unmatched elegance and comfort on board. Years of yacht construction, this is the first boat we have built with an Italian designer and we are absolutely confident that our Italian collaboration has created a super-sexy sailing boat. Our goal is to blend the racing experience with the luxury elegance of the Yacht that’s what gives the Persico Marine team the greatest motivation. “
“Bring a light, fast, comfortable and elegant boat to life – this is the concept that drives us in our project. Combining these input functions is one of the things we do best.
