The 145’ RICHARD DUNSTON 44M TUGBOAT Ariete Primo was built in steel in 1967 by the Dunston Shipyard in the United Kingdom with an exterior design by Yankee Delta Studio. Mr. Franco Ponti then discovered her in 2004 and decided to rebuild her totally.

Naval architect Gregori Grgic and interior architect Sergio Allori created a unique balance between luxury features and the classic character of the vessel. The original engine is still on board, so is the “Panama Eye”, an oval window used by a crewmember assisting the captain with navigating through the Panama Canal.

Ariete Primo offers all the charm and originality of its background as a tugboat that has travelled the oceans of the world. Transformed into an elegant classic motor yacht for exclusive cruises, she has preserved the elegance of Old England. precious woodwork and furnishings create a warm, cosy interior where nothing is left up to chance: all details are carefully designed to offer the pleasure of total relaxation and make guests feel perfectly at home.

Amongst many other features, the yacht offers extensive exterior deck spaces, a mosaic tiled spa offering chromotherapy and aromatherapy, a gym, a hammam and a whirlpool bath to pamper both body and mind. All with the most elegant comforts expected in this truly exceptional yacht.

When this truly unique was gutted and totally rebuilt, keeping only the hull to main deck and her engine and propulsion gear, the yacht conversion was followed in intricate detail by her meticulous Owner who strived to retain the character of her former identity whilst incorporating all the new systems of a Superyacht.

Her top speed is 15 knots and her cruising speed is 12 knots on a full displacement hull. Her power comes from a Ruston Hornsby 2315 Hp diesel engine.

She can accommodate in comfort and classic style up to 14 guests in 6 en-suite sizeable staterooms, with 10 crew members waiting on their every need.

Ariete Primo is currently registered in Italy, but bank repossessed. Hence, a particular purchase procedure applies to acquire this vessel. She is currently located at the superyacht Marina Genova Aeroporto, in Italy.
