ARETI - MY GAME It's all about performance.....
Andrew Winch worked closely with Lürssen to create a vessel that would excel technically and in terms of performance but was also sporty yet elegant to suit the owner’s active lifestyle. When it came to construction, PYC compliance brought with it a more robust approach including more staterooms, and was deemed most appropriate proving that luxury and regulation need not be at odds.
The layout of the yacht has been extremely well considered. The deck spaces flow together seamlessly, whether the yacht is being used for entertaining, business, games and fun or sports. The forward helipad can be used as a large open-air sports or entertainment area. The sun deck becomes an inside-outside gym. The Bicycle Room and the Spa are adjacent to the teak lounge-like Beach Club which is equipped with a bar. Guests arriving via tender can walk directly into it. The Beach Club opens out onto a generous bathing platform with fixed lounging areas either side. Access to the water is easy thanks to a hydraulic staircase which is partly submerged when open. The beach club is equipped with a fresh water shower as well as inside facilities.
Areti was designed to carry a large number of tenders and toys. The spaces and systems for managing them are on the Main Deck forward. Two garages are located under the heli pad and contain two 9-metre tenders by Yachtwerft Meyer, one is open and the other is a limousine tender. A Pascoe Solas rescue tender, a Zodiac Solas rescue tender and two Sea-Doo jet skis round out the tender complement in the garages.
There is also a large assortment of smaller water toys and scuba equipment to enhance the enjoyment of life at sea while the yacht is at anchor. It's all about performance! Click on the link if you want to see Areti in fun mode!
CIAO GIANNI SOLDIn a truly international deal representative of contemporary yachting
Designed by one of the world’s most knowledgeable yachtsmen and with naval architecture by Frers, when launched Ciao Gianni (named as a tribute to the Italian industrialist and sailor Gianni Agnelli) immediately caught the sailing community’s attention for her combination of power, efficiency, acceleration and simplicity. Built by the very best composite builder with the highest tech and simplest equipment available, her engineering is superb and her single-handed performance is unmatched. The reverse bow makes for an immediately recognizable silhouette, lightens her extremities and reduces spray.
The first deal of 2019 is emblematic of the global nature of yachting: lying in Sardinia Italy, Ciao Gianni was owned by a Swiss resident represented by Stuart Larsen; the buyer, a sailing enthusiast based on the West Coast, was represented by a German broker. The exceptionality of the yacht, excellent maintenance and the very correct asking price clinched the deal.

Hakvoort Shipyard launches 63m flagship superyacht SCOUTDutch shipbuilder Hakvoort Shipyard successfully launched the yard’s largest project to date
Measuring 63.72-metres with a beam of 11.6 metres and a draft of 3.25 metres, SCOUT emerged from the Hakvoort shed in Monnickendam in North Holland on 1st December before being towed to Amsterdam for final completion. Amongst the works that will be completed in the Dutch capital is the installation of her mast, crow’s nest, radars, stabilizers and propellers.
Though construction of YN249 originally started under a different name, a change of ownership early on in the build process saw a complete change in direction for the steel and aluminum explorer yacht. Hakvoort can now reveal that SCOUT features both interior and exterior design by Jonny Horsfield and his talented team at H2 Yacht Design, who worked closely with the owner to ensure the realization of a Dutch-quality new-build project that perfectly fits her owner’s taste and requirements. Diana Yacht Design is responsible for her naval architecture.
Speaking of some of the standout features on board, Jonny Horsfield says: “SCOUT has been an exciting project for the H2 Yacht Design and Hakvoort teams. The owner’s brief called for a rugged explorer style yacht intended to look like a conversion from a commercial vessel. We gave her crisp, distinctive lines and integrated forward sloping windows. We placed the tenders on the bow, leaving them exposed to add to the utilitarian aesthetic.
“There is a helideck and a forward observation lounge in addition to an expansive sun deck,” Horsfield continues. “It allows unobstructed views fore and aft which will be one of the focal points of living onboard. The whole design process was centered around a romantic idea of original ocean exploration and SCOUT’s design - inside and out - really reflects that. She’s a fantastically unique vessel.”
Powered by twin CATERPILLAR 3512C diesel engines, SCOUT is designed to cruise at 12.5 knots and will be able to reach a top speed of 14.8 knots. Combined with easy technical accessibility and minimum maintenance requirements, an autonomous range of 4,800 nm at 12 knots ensures that she will live up to her ocean-going credentials. Her Lloyds ice classed hull adds to her serious exploration attributes as a go anywhere world cruising yacht.
On board, she accommodates eight guests across four generous staterooms on the main deck, in addition to an impressive owner’s suite that is located on the dedicated owner’s deck above. The lower deck features the crew accommodations consisting two staff cabins and nine crew cabins. Her captain's cabin is situated on the bridge deck.
Hakvoort Shipyard was introduced to the owners by Stuart Larsen and Josh Gulbranson of FRASER YACHTS who also organized the owners project team.
The successful launch of SCOUT marks a significant milestone for Hakvoort Shipyard. SCOUT will be the largest vessel in Hakvoort’s fleet upon delivery in a few months’ time, taking the title from the 61-metre motor yacht JUST J’S delivered in 2016.
Further details regarding YN249’s interior design will be revealed at a later date.
