MELEK is a development of the new breed of Perini performance cruisers with hull lines by Ron Holland and built in aluminum to keep down displacement and wetted surface.

The sail plan with fully battened main and mizzens and in-boom furling and reefing creates a much closer winded yacht, with a greater sail area and better speed.

From her spacious flybridge living areas and her semi sunk cockpit, MELEK offers a variety of great outdoor living areas complimented by spacious paneled air conditioned interior areas.

MELEK 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.

MELEK underwent her 5 year ABS survey in 2014.

Fully commissioned and ready for her next owner, she is a magnificent example of the famed 56-meter series from Perini Navi.

All service work on Melek is recorded in the onboard planned maintenance system.  The purpose of keeping a planned maintenance system is to minimize breakdowns and extend the service life of components, which in turn reduces operating costs.  Furthermore, keeping a detailed record of works carried out is useful for Class and Flag surveys. 

The majority of planned maintenance onboard Melek is based on calendar intervals, in that most tasks are carried out on a weekly or monthly basis.  These intervals have been established based on the historical data collected.  Some work, such as the servicing of engines, is carried out based on the running hours of the machinery.

  • Significant 6000HR Main Engine service work completed
  • A4 Level service of Main Engine Gearboxes (ZF 3350NR)
  • Black and Grey vacuum pumps overhauled
  • All Sewage Treatment pumps overhauled
  • Emergency Generator exhaust valve replaced
  • Both Air Compressors serviced

MELEK has accommodations aft for owners and guests in five (5) cabins all with ensuite toilet facilities. Her total compliment of owners and guests can be ten (10) to eleven (11) depending upon whether the Pullman bunk in
the forward guest cabin is used.

MELEK sleeps up to Eleven (11) crew in five (5) cabins with five (5) heads.

Perini Navi has done a fantastic job in space planning and use of space. The service areas make excellent use of space and make sometime difficult service jobs seem easy.

Starting on the sun deck/ Flybridge 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 guests access the aft deck or main salon via an aft stairway to Port.

From the raised deck aft of the cockpit to port is a hydraulic deck access to the lazarette.
This area also has a double crew cabin with a complete head and shower. Main access to the engine room is via a watertight door in the lazarette. The engine room emergency access is on the port side of the main deck.

To port is the hull shell door which folds out hydraulically to make a 2 m wide swim platform complete with handrails, a swim ladder and a permanent hot and cold water shower at the entrance. This access is typically the primary access to the yacht when at anchor with the starboard mid-ships hydraulic gangway being the alternative access providing flexibility in that one access is mid-ship to starboard and the other is aft to port.

The aft cockpit features a large 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 55” Wide Screen
TV. Both this screen and the one in the cockpit are tastefully hidden when not in use.

To starboard forward from the salon is a private dining salon with seating for up to 12 around a table. Can be enlarged with additional leaf.

Crew quarters are forward and below with the galley in the after portion of the crew area to port and the crew dinette to starboard.

Owner and guest areas are aft via a water tight door making crew servicing of these areas most efficient thanks to the Perini aft engine room.

The extra refrigeration is one level below accessed via a stairway between the galley and the guest area. The laundry is athwartship and forward of the crew cabins.

The five (5) 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 double bed as well as a Pullman. The next two cabins aft have queen size beds and generous bathrooms.

The guest cabins comprise of one (1) full beam master stateroom and four (4) guest cabins. These guest cabins are split into three (3) double bedrooms with their marble floored ensuite bathrooms and one (1) twin bedroom with an extra Pullman as we as a custom built baby cot that can easily be removed anytime.
