Designed and engineered by the Delta Design Group, her Polynesian-inspired interior is elegant, comfortable, and suitable for a family at home on the seas (up to 12 guests).
It is adorned with rare tropical hardwoods including Mascassar ebony, Wenge and Koa. Balinese-inspired touches and colorful blown glass lighting. It also features inlaid silk carpets, organic fabrics and textures, woven leather and natural stone. Another highlight inside is a room for kids within the owner’s suite, located on the upper deck.

Also unusual is a float-in tender garage.
Roomy external seating areas are perfect for al fresco dining or lounging in the sun. There is a large aft seating area on the main deck and the sun deck features a bathroom, hot-tub, sun chairs, and a large island-style bar. Guests can escape the sun under a lightweight carbon fiber bimini cover. An elevator provides access to all four decks.
“Partnering with a company that has such an established client base and such a profound knowledge of the superyacht market made good business sense for us,” says Dovi Frances, co-founder and managing partner of SG, LLC. “However, it was even more important for us to find a company that also excels in providing a boutique customer service while allowing us to focus on effectively positioning M/Y Arianna’s brand. Through this new joint venture with Merle Wood & Associates, we have found our match.”
Arianna is equipped with twin Caterpillar 3512B engines that give her a cruising speed of 14.5 knots and a maximum speed of 16 knots. She carries 21,900 gallons of fuel and has a range of over 5,000 nautical miles.
