The Phinisi Schooner Inspired Superyacht 'The Zen'

This beautiful modern day 53m (174ft) Phinisi Schooner inspired Superyacht known as 'The Zen', is the work and collaboration between the Global Adventure Group Ltd., Konjo Builders and the world famous Zygmunt Choren designer and builder of some of the worlds greatest tall ships. A Phinisi Schooner is a traditional two masted Indonesian sailing vessel built by the Konjo tribe from South Sulawesi. The vessels were usually used for fishing, transportation and trading voyages.

'The Zen will distinguish itself by offering a high quality experience throughout the vessel', says Pawel Marczak, director of Global Adventure Ltd. the Hong Kong company behind this project.

Zen has the perfect mix of classic Phinisi lines and a luxury interior that would be right a home in any 5 star hotel. This mix gives her a bold yet graceful appearance as seen in the image above, a dream yacht for the true explorer. She will be able to accommodate her guests in 6 guest staterooms and a two level owners suite with adjoining children's room.

Her interior is designed by Digital Effect Design Studio in Poland which features teak floors and dark sono rosewood for the walls which give that tropical feel. Throughout the yacht you will find ornaments, sculptures and carvings originating from Polynesian, Maori and Asian cultures. The ceilings are decorated with wooden tiles with 19th century maps carved on them, showing the need for adventure that Zen craves.

She will have a great selection of water sport activities for the guests to enjoy such as snorkeling, diving, kite boarding, water skiing and wake boarding as well as two jet skis and two tenders. If water sports aren't for the guests then there is plenty of deck space where they can hangout and relax.

She will be available for charter in August 2012.
