Main Deck :
Aft deck is accessed from ashore by way of a telescopic passarelle. There is also an extending hydraulic platform that provides for an ideal fishing platform for use underway. The aft deck is expansive, with two large capstans and cleats on each side, and a dining table that is protected from the weather by the deck above. The aft salon doors are automatic, giving access to the main salon which extends forward to incorporate various guest areas in an open-plan configuration. Aft is the formal reception area with seating and a central service bar. Immediately forward is the private dining area. To port is the crew vertical access which brings the crew up to all decks and has a dumb-waiter following it up from the galley below. To starboard is a generously sized storage cupboard for service items. Then there is a breakfast table to starboard and additional seating, whilst to port is a lounge area with the TV screen.
Going forward to starboard takes us up stairs to the Owner’s deck.
To port is the access corridor to the guest cabins. There is a day-head to starboard, whilst the first area to port is the Spa area, with Hydromassage bath, Jacuzzi and Hamman shower, chromatherapy, as well as a large storage area for towels, linen and products.
To starboard is a double cabin with an additional single bed, walk-in wardrobe and generous bathroom. Next to starboard is a double cabin with walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, and all the way forward is the very spacious twin cabin with ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe.
Aft is the crew area. There are 3 twins and 1 triple, and the spacious kitchen. The crew mess is to starboard. Forward of this is the laundry, and the main access to the Engine Room.
The Engine room is amidships, and predictably is very large. There is more than ample room to access all machinery and to service it. There is a large control room situated to port of the Engine Room.
Forward of the Engine room is a double guest cabin to starboard, with an extra single bed, walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. The access stairs for the guests is to port, which connect to the deck above at the level of the Spa. And forward is another double cabin with a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom.
The aft open deck is very expansive, and equipped with a variety of exterior lounge furniture. There is a large dining table situated forward and under cover of the deck-head above, with a servery bar located on the forward bulkhead with fridge and sinks. A sliding door accesses into the owner’s sky lounge which has a small bar to starboard, and a crew access to port, where their stair communicated from the galley two decks below. The lounge is a comfortable relaxing area, which can be transformed into a party zone with DJ turntables, amps and speakers to provide the music. Forward to starboard there is the Owner’s private study. To port there is the access door that leads into the Owner’s private suite. The dressing room is located in the passageway leading forward to the owner’s cabin. The owner’s cabin has a central king bed facing aft, and a bathroom located to starboard.
Aft is located the tender storage area and cranes. Then there is a large Jacuzzi and raised deck area. Access stairs to starboard lead up to the fly-bridge where a second crew tender is stored, and there is access to the mast and all the antenna installations.
A sliding door leads into bridge, with the Captain’s cabin to port, with internal stairs coming up from the Owner’s deck, and the passageway leading forward to the chart-table and radio room. There is a centrally located day-head for guests. Two lateral doors access the side-decks for operating the wing-stations.

A truly unique vessel. Ariete Primo was gutted and totally rebuilt, keeping only the hull to main deck and her engine and propulsion gear. The re-build has been followed in intricate detail by a fastidious and meticulous Owner who strived to retain the character of her former identity whilst incorporating all the new systems and comforts of a super-yacht.
