Sailing yacht Zenji for sale at Merle Wood and Perini Navi
by Malcolm MacLean
Here's another newcomer to the market as I learn that Merle Wood at Merle Wood & Associates and Bruce Brakenhoff at Perini Navi USA have signed the 56m sailing yacht Zenji for sale.
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.
On display at the Monaco Yacht Show, Zenji is asking €26.9 million.
