White, sleek, streamlined, top performance, unique, like no other, artisanship, fully customizable, innovative, workmanship. If these adjectives tire you, here is more about the the many superlatives you can promote this boat with. In the spirit of the `Mustardo’ comes the 44m Ariete Primo. The Ariete Primo began `her life’ as a Richard Dunston in 1967. It was bought by its current owner in 2004.
After years of expensive rebuilding without losing touch of its roots, the ship’s interior was upgraded to that of a luxurious yacht. Some of the features include a full-fledged chromo & aroma therapy spa, a gym and even a complete hamam. Well, there’s more to it than meets the eye. For a mere tug boat, they sure seem to have splurged on the arrangements. That seems awfully lavish for such a ship.
The crew-cabins-turned-luxury-suites were designed by Sergio Allori. The yacht’s structural renewal which included converting the ballast compartments into living space, enabling the deck to accommodate a helipad, was overseen by architect Massimo Gregori Grgic from Yankee Delta Studio. The architect managed to preserve the boat’s history and character.
The Ariete Primo is sadly not available for sale. You can charter it starting March through September. It is currently located in the Mediterranean at €110,000 per week in the low season, €120,000 in the high.
