Philippe Briand debuts 124-foot yacht

Launched this spring, the 124-foot Perini Navi sloop Dahlak is the latest yacht from naval architect Philippe Briand’s London-based studio.

Launched this spring, the 124-foot Perini Navi sloop Dahlak is the latest yacht from naval architect Philippe Briand’s London-based studio.

Built at Perini Navi’s yard in La Spezia, Italy, Dahlaks lines mirror those of her sister ship, S/Y P2.

Since her launch in 2008, P2 has participated in more than 25 regattas and most recently won first place at both this year’s Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta and the St Barths Bucket Regatta.

P2 embodies what Briand introduced nearly 20 years ago through the S/Y Mari-Cha III. Dahlak exhibits the same DNA.

“The first big racing yacht I was asked to design was Mari-Cha III,” Briand said in a statement. “She was the biggest carbon-hulled yacht to be built at that time, and during the building process the family fell in love with the project and expressed their wish for her to also be a family yacht.

“Since then, Mari-Cha III has been the joy of all the owner’s family, for the grandparents, the children and the now adult grandchildren. A yacht that wins the Transatlantic Race and at the same time still brings pleasure to the owner after 20 years is about as good as it gets. Dahlak follows a similar concept: Fast when needed, yet always comfortable and welcoming for the guests, she is built to last.”
