Zenji is fantastic luxury sailing charter yacht built by Italian shipyard Perini Navi and launched in 2004 as S/Y Santa Maria. She is ABS and MCA compliant super yacht. Zenji’s naval architecture is done by Perini Navi in house naval engineering in collaboration with Ron Holland. Her designers have done a fantastic job in space planning and use of space, as result she was the winner of the prestigious Showboats Award in 2005 for best interior.
Starting on the sun deck there are twin steering consoles forward to port and starboard with full sail handling controls, as well as navigational screens that are interchangeable along with communications. On deck lounges are aft and 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 crew can go below directly from the sundeck steering console to the bridge. Owner and charter guests access the aft deck or main salon via an aft stairway to starboard. The service areas make excellent use of space and make sometime difficult service jobs seem easy. The bulk of the refrigeration and laundry and storage is done one level below the crew living area and this saves valuable space for the crew and makes tough jobs like laundry and ironing very efficient.
From the raised deck aft of the cockpit to port is a hydraulic deck access to the lazarette where water sports equipment is stored.
Aft cockpit features a large oval dining table aft for up to twelve and generous serving space.
The seating area forward of this is arranged for casual lounging, entertaining and oriented toward a Projection Monitor. Both this screen and the one in the cockpit are tastefully concealed by artwork which disappears at the touch of a button when the screens are needed. 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 set up on Zenji as a Media room and game room. A Sony 42” (1.07m) high definition flat screen is the focal point of this media room.
Zenji accommodates twelve guests in three double and three twin cabins. The master suite features an 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. Double cabins feature king size beds as well and twin cabins are equipped with twin beds and a Pull-man bed in each. The sixth cabin has upper and lower berths and is located to port forward of the master stateroom.
All guest en-suite feature luxurious marbles and trim plus bidets in all with tubs in two and showers in four.

We use MYBA ( The Worldwide Yachting Association) agreements produced to standardize charter terms and protect the Charterer ( You) , the Owner, and the Agent/Broker.
It has standard protections and escalation clauses in case any problems arise.
Once you have signed a MYBA charter contract, you are obligated to pay the entire charter regardless you actually board the yacht.
In exceptional cases, you may be able to cancel, but monies will be refunded only if the yacht can be chartered to another client, therefore many we suggest purchase of insurance against cancellation.
Charter fee is paid in two rates ; 50% of charter fee when the charter contract is signed and 50 % 4 weeks before charter commencement. Extra expenses are charged with Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA). APA is usually 25 % to 30 % of total charter fee and also depending on your itinerary, food, beverages etc. Captain will keep accurate records of funds spent during your charter and at the end of the charter, you will be refunded the difference, or you will asked to pay more during the cruise if further running costs are incurred.
