Phryne sleeps eight (8) guests in four (4) double staterooms, all with ensuite and an additional two (2) to four (4) guests or children in the owner's sitting room to starboard of the master stateroom and in Pullman berths in two of the guest staterooms. Nine (9) crew are accommodated in three (3) double cabins and one triple cabin.
Phryne represents one of the most traditional and detailed 50m sailing yachts to be delivered from Perini Navi. Her design provides all the features of her larger 56m Perini sisters including a large protected cockpit, main deck pilothouse, expansive fly bridge, side shell boarding platform and sophisticated sail management system allowing one person to control all aspects of normal sail handling. Wide teak decks allow easy access forward and aft and a huge foredeck provides deck space for two 5m tenders. Phryne’s main accommodation deck features large and comfortable spaces appointed with parquet inlaid floors, polished mahogany paneling and beveled glass doors. For dinning and entertaining there are both formal and informal areas allowing for comfortable seating for 10. Also on the main deck she has a game room, day head and crew pantry. The owners stateroom below is full beam and very spacious featuring mahogany and fabric wall panels accented with gold fixtures and marble counters. The three guest staterooms are appointed in the same elegant fashion.
Like all Perini Navi sailing yachts, Phryne is designed and equipped to sail safely around the globe in extreme comfort or entertain royalty at anchor off Monaco. Many of her sisterships have done both. After a trip to New Zealand and back, Phryne's recent cruising has been seasonal use in the Mediterranean. She has always been maintained to the highest standards by her original owners and professional full time crew.
Phryne is ketch rigged with aluminum main and mizzen masts built by Perini Navi, with rod standing rigging built by Ocean Yacht Systems. All rod rigging replaced 2011 by BSI Denmark.
Sails are handled automatically by Perini Navi systems, concentrated on a single console at the wheelhouse, duplicated at the fly bridge where the helmsman can single handedly operate the entire system to set sail area, sail trim and furl or unfurl the sails, ease or tension the sheets, tack or jibe. A dedicated monitoring system allows continuous verification of sail system status, operational alarm interpretation and system parameter settings, including a histogram function.
Genoa and staysails are furled on electric furlers with manual back up. Main and mizzen mast were painted 2011.
The aluminum main and mizzen mast are 49m and 35m respectively from the deck. The main and mizzen sails are internal mast furling with electric furlers with manual backup.
Twelve (12) Perini Navi captive reel winches with load cells for sheet tensions are used to handle all the sails and are controlled by the Perini Navi sailing system at the wheelhouse and fly bridge.
