Persico Marine customer’s input was a unique yacht with great potential in long-distance offshore races combined with luxurious comfort for relaxing cruises. They launch the streamlined all-Italian Felci65 merging high performance with exclusive comfort and elegance.

Persico Marine started with a blank sheet of paper to reconceptualize the cruiser racer and develop a special sailing yacht incorporating advanced technology and innovative aesthetics.

The Felci65 achieves high performance thanks to state-of-the-art technology, construction and equipment:

  • Extensive hydrodynamic research to select the ideal canoe body offering the best compromise between resistance and form stability for a given displacement.
  • Streamlined, powerful hull with low free board and reduced displacement, as well as cup-shaped sections providing great stability at high heel angles and less wave resistance at lower angles.
  • Lightweight construction and furniture combined with a deep lifting keel to realize a 20-meter yacht weighing only 18.5 tons.
  • Ergonomic deck layout and high quality deck equipment, ideal both for offshore racing and a short-handed crew.
  • High modulus carbon mast, boom and bowsprit; carbon rigging; high performance stainless steel lifting keel.
  • All of these functional elements are enhanced with the highest level of style and comfort:
  • Dynamic sleek design – offering aerodynamic advantages – characterized by a fixed bowsprit faired into a reverse bow, a very accentuated chamfer in the bow area and a distinctive coachroof shape.
  • Innovative low coachroof windows providing remarkable interior brightness.
  • Private, well-appointed owner’s and guest cabins – almost complete separation between guest and crew areas.

Marcello Persico, CEO, Persico Marine: "I’m very excited about our new project, as it is the perfect expression of Persico Marine’s DNA. We’ve worked for several months with Felci to achieve the highest standard of performance, together with unsurpassed elegance and comfort on board. After 10 years of yacht building, this is the first boat we’ve built with an Italian designer, and we’re absolutely certain our Italian collaboration has created a super-sexy sailing craft. Our goal to merge the racing experience with the elegance of a luxury yacht is what gives the Persico Marine team the greatest motivation.”

Arch. Umberto Felci, Felci Yacht Design: “To bring to life a boat that’s light and fast, yet comfortable and elegant: that was the concept guiding us in our new project. Blending these input features is one of the things we do best. With the new Felci 65, I can confidently say that we have succeeded in creating an exclusive yacht for performance sailing yacht lovers.”
