Edmiston proves Perini Navi expertise with string of sales

Our brokers have sold three of the Italian brand’s finest ever sailing yachts in just seven weeks

The synergy between Edmiston and prestigious Italian brand Perini Navi has been further strengthened, as our brokers have completed sales on three of the yard’s sailing yachts, all in the 50m+ category, in a matter of weeks.

The yachts sold include the timeless beauty 56m ROSEHEARTY, one of the fastest yachts in the Perini Navi fleet; the 56m MELEK, with its futuristic hydraulic transom; and 56m ZENJI, a successful mega sailing yacht that still delivers on speed and comfort at sea.

The sales follow on from an excellent year of collaboration for Perini Navi and Edmiston, with Edmiston reporting a 100% market share of Perini Navi sailing yachts sold in 2021.

Edmiston has also been involved with over 60% of all sales of Perini Navis over 40m in the past two years.

Perini Navi yachts are admired across the industry, with their combination of speed, high-quality engineering, elegant innovations, and luxurious interiors leading many to consider them modern masterpieces. They are a perennially popular choice when it comes to both sales and charters.

Edmiston has the largest Perini Navi fleet in the industry and the success of the partnership can be largely attributed to Edmiston’s well-placed, expert brokers, who have been able to call upon their years of experience and knowledge, as well as their engaged market networks, to match the new Owners with their yachts.

It’s especially good news for our Newport office, which has been involved in all three deals, once again demonstrating it peerless contacts base and all-round expertise in the sailing market, particularly when it comes to Perini Navis.

Based in the old Perini Navi premises on Goat Island, our Newport office is headed up by Bruce Brakenhoff who is joined by sales broker Dirk Johnson and their passion for the brand shines through. Bruce Brakenhoff was also the listing broker for the 45m Perini Navi yacht CLAN VIII, which sold in December. The Newport Office is complemented with expert brokers elsewhere, including Monaco’s Alex Busher, joint broker of ZENJI.

Dirk Johnson says: “The Perini Navi brand is synonymous with luxury yachting in faraway places, for those seeking independence from crowded harbours who want to experience the romance of sail. We recognise what these magnificent vessels can deliver and that the clients who own them are cut from a different cloth. We want to deliver the full yachting experience of supporting our clients in their adventures from the first day of looking for the right yacht.”

If you are looking to buy or charter a Perini Navi yacht, contact your Edmiston broker. Because at Edmiston, we don’t just list yachts, we sell them.

Meanwhile, for holidays where the focus is more on food, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Chinese New Year, with your own personal chef, a crew to serve you, and grand dining options both inside and outside, you can’t beat a fine-dining feast on board.
