Persico Marine to build Infiniti 52, all carbon fibre racing yacht

After a lengthy tendering process, future construction of the Infiniti 52 racing yachts outside of the USA is to be undertaken by Persico Marine.


The all-carbon fibre Infiniti 52 is the latest model in the Hugh Welbourn-designed Infiniti range that includes 36-, 46- and 105-feet models. All are equipped with Welbourn’s Dynamic Stability System retractable foils that protrude laterally from the hull beneath the water to provide extra stability automatically on demand whenever required.

The Infiniti52 completely embraces our philosophy and we’re sure that Persico Marine, with our expertise and advanced technologies, can bring a strategical added value to this high-performance yachts.”
