ARETE is a 44m (144ft) displacement motor yacht with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure built to Lloyd's classification. With engineering by Vripack and design inside and out by the multi award winning studio of Pieter Beeldsnijder, she was delivered in 2014 by renowned Dutch shipyard Bloemsma & Van Breeman.
Her top deck crow's nest has an intimate lounge area where guests can enjoy privacy and excellent views.
Steps to starboard lead down to a sun deck with sun loungers forward, open air dining and a bar beneath the hardtop, the forward part of which has fanned skylights, a partially shaded jacuzzi to starboard and a huge sunpad aft.
The owner's deck aft has a semi-circular private lounge area forward. The rest of the deck serves as a boat deck underway with horizontal davits to launch the 5.5m (18ft) RIB tender and toys at anchor, after which this becomes a large and versatile space, partially shaded by the overhang, for the owner's private use. Walk around side decks also lead to a second private terrace forward.
There is another open air dining option on the main deck aft, with steps either side leading down to the swim platform, and walkaround decks provide access to a foredeck lounge seating.
A beam of 9.2m (30.3ft) gives her an internal volume of 480GT. The upper deck - the owner's deck - has wraparound views in the bedroom suite, vanity table, walk in wardrobe in the marble en suite, owner's office and direct access to the terrace forward.
Moving aft, the stairwell has natural light from a skylight in the sun deck and a dayhead off the lobby. Aft is a versatile space currently used as an office and gym with large picture windows but could equally serve as a sky lounge.
The main saloon also has large picture windows, naturally lighting the contemporary styling. There is C shaped seating port aft, a sit-up bar to starboard and a formal dining area forward.
In addition to the owner's double suite, there are two queen sized cabins and two twin cabins, each with a pullman berth, on the lower deck, completing accommodation for 12 guests in five suites. She also sleeps up to nine crew in five cabins.
Twin 1,115hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a top speed of 15.5 knots, a cruising speed of 14 knots and a transatlantic range of 5,250nm at her economical speed of 12.5 knots. Naiad zero speed stabilisers provide comfort at anchor.
