CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico -– Baja Yachts, a worldwide Internet-based yacht brokerage, has been chosen to assist in the sale of the 147-foot former royal yacht for the late Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of promoting this beautiful yacht,” says James Truett, whose company, TrueStar Marketing, owns Baja Yachts. “Imagine what it’s like to be aboard a boat with such a rich history.”

The luxurious Camper & Nicholsons steel yacht is being offered for sale by her current owner for $535,000 Euros.

Built in 1928, the vessel was a wedding present from Aristotle Onassis to the Prince when he married former actress Grace Kelley. The couple spent their honeymoon aboard the yacht, known then as “Deo Juvante II”.

Now known as “Zein” and registered in the Cayman Islands, the vessel is available for showing in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Details of the vessel as well as a photo gallery can be seen at:

The vessel has a fascinating history. Before she was given to the Prince and Princess, she served as a sub-chaser for Great Britain during World War II.

The motor yacht, with a classic canoe stern and powered by twin diesel engines, is elegantly outfitted and equipped for extended range cruising. She is set up to accommodate guests in a full-width master stateroom, four double staterooms and a four-bunk crews quarters, all with en suite facilities.

The galley clearly was designed for entertaining guests for gourmet dinners – it has a walk-in cooler.
