Hello to everyone!!!!
I have a deep interest in classic yachts.
Now , I am in the process of a total re-built of a classical and historical yacht. The last name of it was ZEIN, but her names on her most glorious days were RION and DEO JUVANTE. As RION she was an heroic ship during WW II, and as DEO JUVANTE she was the Royal Yacht of Monaco. She was a wedding present from Aristotle Onassis to Princess Grace and Prince Rainier of Monaco. They spent their honeymoon on this yacht.
Due terrible marine malpractices (i.E. using doublers and triplers instead of inserts) the yacht was in terrible structural condition and we had to re-built her from the keel up. She will be finnished in the next couple of months and begin trading in the Galapagos Islands.
Any information and pictures on the history of the yacht is most welcome. We have been able to gather a good deal of it, but there should be a lot more out there.

Many thanks.

Eduardo Diez
