ZENJI is a development of the new breed of Perini performance cruisers with hull lines by Ron Holland and built in aluminium to keep down displacement and wetted surface. She was the winner of the prestigious Showboats Award in 2005 for best interior.
The sail plan with fully battened main and mizzens and in-boom furling and reefing allows her to sail closer wind angles with a greater sail area and better speed.
She is all about luxurious sailing performance.
From her spacious flybridge living areas and her semi sunk cockpit, ZENJI offers a variety of great outdoor living areas complimented by spacious light cherry panelled air conditioned interior areas.
ZENJI is an extremely quiet yacht engineered with all of her soles and non-structural bulkheads floating with an emphasis on reduction of all vibration and structural born noise.
The six (6) cabins aft in the owner/guest area are diverse in their configurations to provide infinite flexibility. The forward two cabins have twin beds and a Pullman in each. The next two cabins aft have Queen size beds.
The master suite features an offset king size bed to starboard, a seating area and vanity, gigantic walk-in closets and a marble bath with his and hers sinks, tub and shower.
All guest heads feature luxurious italian marbles and trim plus bidets in all with tubs in two and showers in four. The sixth cabin has upper and lower berths and is located to port forward of the master suite.
Flybridge deck lounges are just forward of the mizzen mast. All the way aft is a large cushioned sun lounge area with a very large Jacuzzi just aft of the mizzen mast.
The aft cockpit features a large oval dining table aft for up to twelve guests.
The seating area forward of this is arranged for casual lounging, entertaining and oriented toward a 103" Wide Screen Panasonic TV.
To starboard forward from the salon is a private dining salon with seating for up to ten around an oval table.
To port of the salon is the media lounge. A Sony 42” (1.07m) high definition plasma screen is the focal point of this media room.
