New Performance For
Sprayhood, Flybridge Of
Perini Navi SY ‘Burrasca’

The mission wasn’t only to design a new sprayhood and cockpit awning but also come up with a technical solution to tightly fixate the sprayhood with a better fixing solution instead of the existing TENAX buckles.

Stronger Fixing System For
Flybridge Sprayhood

Our choice was installing a PVC track with keder tape system for new sprayhood fixing solution.
This new system for sprayhood means much more stability of this really large sprayhood area of the Perini Navi superyacht, especially against harsh weather conditions during sailing.

Aesthetics Matter

It also wasn’t aesthetically appealing with the dark eyelets and rope lining the lighter coloured fabric so we took into consideration all the surrounding colour details.

For Extra Stability

A technical solution for the fixation of the new sprayhood on the flybridge of the Perini Navi superyacht. Installation of a PVC track system and inserting keder tape with YKK zippers.

A Strong & Stable Sprayhood

The whole sprayhood is made with additional reinforcements because of the large surface area. It is absolutely necessary to reinforce the stability of the sprayhood during sailing especially because of harsh weather conditions.

The assembly process itself took a while because there are several fixing systems involved. From ropes to additional clips we made sure that the fixing system was properly adjusted on the Perini Navi yacht.
