The piano was on board the 298-ton 147-foot yacht (built in the 1920s) given to Prince Ranier and Princess Grace of Monaco as a wedding gift from Aristotle Onassis. In 1956, the royal couple honeymooned aboard the yacht along the coasts of Corsica and Sardinia. Princess Grace often played this piano for Prince Ranier and their guests aboard the yacht, which was christened Deo Juvente II.
In 1987, John Issa, owner and chairman of SuperClubs - the parent company of Breezes Bahamas - acquired the yacht along with the piano. Bearing the name M/Y Zein after one of Issa’s daughters, the vessel was fully restored before taking up residence along the coast of Negril, Jamaica where it remained the official yacht of one of Issa’s popular beach resorts for nearly twenty years.
“Princess Grace enjoyed playing this piano,” said Muna Issa, vice president operations to SuperClubs. “We’re proud to have this beautiful - and romantic - piece of history here at Breezes Bahamas for our guests to enjoy.”
Guests of Breezes Bahamas can now view the piano, on display in the foyer of the brand new Banana Boat restaurant, which opened in early January 2014.
