ANDROMEDA LA DEA is the timeless Perini.  She is a magic blend of classic hull lines and traditional yachting ambiance, with state of the art sail handling systems, machinery, electronics and communication equipment.  Since her original launch in 1990 as one of the world's largest and most technologically advanced sailing yachts, ANDROMEDA has had the best of care and consistent upgrading, including three major refits, which have maintained her position at the leading edge of yachting technology.  In every detail, her accommodations on deck and below exude the old world charm and attention to detail that has been long lost in most modern yacht building, while providing all amenities for gracious living aboard.

Vessel Overview

After her first circumnavigation and a decade of cruising, Andromeda underwent a comprehensive refit and rebuilding of all operating systems, plus a thorough updating of her sail handling systems.  Spars were converted to Nirvana hydraulic carbon in-boom furling, new carbon fiber headstay, staysail and fisherman stays were added, main & mizzen captive reel halyards were converted to hydraulic power.  These refinements are found on the most recently launched Perini Navi yachts.

Further improvements were carried out including extension of the flybridge to allow for her custom Jacuzzi and sun deck area, plus a fixed awning over the aft deck.  The flybridge modification created one of the most comfortable and congenial entertaining areas on the bridge and any Perini Navi afloat!  Hull lights were also added, which illuminate the waters surrounding the yacht to dramatic affect.

Andromeda underwent another comprehensive refit in New Zealand.  All new engines and generators were installed.  A new hydraulic retractable passarelle was installed, and a new Audio/Visual system that will rival the most sophisticated land based systems - anywhere!

In 2008 all standing rigging and fittings were replaced with new, a new cathodic protection system was installed, new batteries, aft cockpit awning replaced, two new Lewmar Hydraulic open drum spinnaker winches installed, new tender and two Laser sailing dinghies, plus the air conditioning and refrigeration systems were completely overhauled.  ANDROMEDA LA DEA most recently completed her 20 year ABS survey including new paint on hull and superstructure, and new sails.

In sum, ANDROMEDA LA DEA has had benefit of all technological advances that have been achieved in yachting since her original launch.  The Yacht has been maintained and consistently improved.  She is indeed the timeless Perini!

ANDROMEDA has been stored inside the Perini Navi facility in Viareggio for the past three years during which time a number of significant repairs and upgrades have been initiated.  Due to unforeseen circumstances the projects remain unfinished and a buyer will have the opportunity to complete the project, the price of the vessel adjusted accordingly.  This is a unique opportunity to purchase one of the most iconic sailing vessels in the world at a fraction of her value.
