Polynesian Perfection from the Pacific Northwest

  • Danielle Cutler

New from Seattle-based builder Delta Marine comes the largest all-composite 50-meter luxury custom motor yacht on the planet. Arianna’s 164-foot length, 34-foot beam, and more than 7,500 square feet of living space are built to travel the world. Penned and engineered by the Delta Design Group, Arianna features Polynesian-inspired decor as requested by the owner. Makassar ebony, wenge, and koa are used throughout the interior, along with inlaid silk carpets, leather, organic fabrics, and natural stone, to create a Balinese ambience.

Unlike on most yachts, the master suite comprises the upper deck and boasts its own private outdoor space, dining area, lounge, and a separate room for children or others who need to be nearby. Arianna has seven staterooms that can accommodate up to 12 guests, including the owners, plus 12 crew.

Besides the private sundeck off the master suite, Arianna has a sizable covered aft seating area, a sundeck with spa tub, a large bar, a dayhead, and plenty of lounge chairs for sunning. The sundeck also stows the secondary tender, while the main tender resides in a float-in garage. An elevator connects all of the decks. Two Caterpillar 3512B engines propel Arianna to a 16-knot maximum speed and a 14.5-knot cruising speed. Her range is 5,000 nautical miles, giving her transatlantic capabilities.

If all of this sounds intriguing, Arianna will be available for charter following her maiden voyage. (www.deltamarine.com)
