A twinning of the exception that lies between the flagship of the Perini Navi fleet : The Maltese Falcon, and the historic Amerigo Vespucci. Together they inaugurated the 52nd edition of the Genoa Boat Show during the opening ceremony that was held last week in the presence of Deputy Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Mario Ciaccia. The two largest Italian sailing ships met for the first time as guests of honor at the main national boat show. Both over 80 meters in length - 88 meters Maltese Falcon, 82 meters the Ship Vespucci - are the pride of the Italian sailing tradition both past and present .

The newest member of the Perini Navi family was launched in September 2010. Melek is a natural evolution in the popular 56 metre series whose subtle re-styling was done by the architects at Perini Navi. Her hull and superstructures, in aluminium with displacement inferior to 500 tonnes, were built at the Perini Navi shipyard in Yildiz, Istanbul then towed to Viareggio for finishing and outfitting.
