Built in The Netherlands by the esteemed shipyard Bloesma Van Breeman ARETE was delivered in 2014 measuring 44m (144ft) in length. Exquisite craftsmanship and design can be admired throughout this vessel as she was built to very high standards with Pieter Beeldsnijder as her interior and exterior designer. With 480GT of interior volume ARETE can accommodate up to 12 guests comfortably across five well-appointed cabins.
Upon stepping inside guests are welcomed by a serene main deck saloon bathed in natural light with large windows lining the space for unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape. A relaxing lounge area, sit-up bar, and formal dining table provide a versatile space for guests to gather after a day on the water. Unique for a yacht of her size, the upper deck acts as the owner’s private deck and the owner's suite forward has access to a private terrace, a study amidships and a flexible owner’s lounge aft. On the lower deck are two queen cabins aft and two twin cabins forward, each with a pullman bunk.
ARETE’s sun deck is a focal point for entertainment with a sit-up wet bar, al fresco dining area, jacuzzi and sun loungers. The truly magnificent feature however is on the top deck, where there is an intimate observation lounge for guests to enjoy the views in private while at anchor or underway. An additional lounge area can be found on the upper deck aft and al fresco dining on the main deck aft.
Twin 1,115hp Caterpillar engines allow a top speed of 15.5 knots, and a range of 5,250nm at her economical speed of 12.5 knots.
