Perini Navi USA sells sailing yacht Zenji with Merle Wood

15 January 2013By Malcolm MacLean

Bruce Brakenhoff at Perini Navi USA tells me he acted for the buyer in the sale of the 56m sailing yacht Zenji, a joint listing with Merle Wood at Merle Wood & Associates.

One of the newer breed of Perini Navi yachts, she was built to a Ron Holland design in 2004. MCA compliant, her satin finished cherrywood interior sleeps up to 14 guests in six staterooms while twin 1239hp Deutz engines give her a cruising speed of 11 knots. A sophisticated set of Doyle Stratis sails – new in 2009 – power her to speeds up to 16 knots and she’s extremely quite, with soles and non-structural bulkheads cushioned.

Zenji was asking €26.9 million.
