Perini Navi S/Y Piropo: nuove sartie volanti by Armare Ropes

S/Y Piropo

The supply included composite cables (with breaking loads from 25 to 60 tons) with Dyneema® core; all the terminals used for the fittings are made of special high-strength AISI 630 stainless steel and customized to fit the existing equipment. Piropo, which can accommodate up to 12 guests in 5 suites, as well as the large crew, is currently sailing to the Caribbean where it will spend the winter season.

This important rigging intervention was made possible thanks to our customers Soluzioni Tessili Rigging and NP Navis.
