Camper & Nicholsons sells 56m Perini sailing yacht Selene
by Malcolm MacLean
Here's a significant sale as Daniel Ziriakus at Camper & Nicholsons sends word that the 56m Perini Navi sailing yacht Selene, a joint listing with Alex and Gaston Lees-Buckley, is sold in an in-house deal.
The fourth 56 metre to be launched by Perini, Selene may share the qualities and attributes of her sisters, but she has her own character and elegant innovations, among them a hydraulically opening transom, which contains a structural staircase descending to a wide bathing platform, a portside platform and some differences in layout including a larger, athwartships dining room forward of the saloon and a corridor allowing crew to move from the aft cockpit to the crew quarters without impinging on guest privacy.
She can accommodate up to 12 guests in six well-appointed staterooms including a full-beam master suite, with room for nine crew members.
Her richly detailed and flawlessly executed Art Deco interior – accomplished by Perini Navi’s own designer Bernardo Chichi – won Best Sailing Yacht Interior at the 2008 World Superyacht Awards.
Still available for charter through Camper & Nicholsons, Selene was asking $25 million.
