New Central Agency M/Y ARETI

Stuart is pleased to announce his appointment as Joint Central Listing for Areti, the 85m (280’) 2,850 GT motor yacht, built by Lurssen in 2017. Passenger Yacht Compliant (PYC) and built to Germanischer Lloyds, she is the only large new PYC certified yacht available for immediate delivery.  She represents as a unique opportunity for a superyacht buyer to avoid a long wait to build.

Elegant with a streamlined design, Areti has a welcoming, warm feel. Winch Design, responsible for her exterior and interior design, successfully balanced spaces that could seat 18 for dining yet with areas where one or two people could relax privately.  The fresh American-classic interior is decorated in soft creams and taupes with accents of colour and includes recognisable Winch styling touches like the impressive staircase in the lobby.

Winch found creative solutions to conform to the stringent Passenger Yacht Code rules and keep the luxury yacht feel.  Areti can accommodate 18 to 22 guests, even in commercial charter mode. The eight guest suites plus the full-beam forward-facing master suite are located over three decks. With two VIP cabins for family, the owner’s deck can be entirely private. The master suite, with his and her bathrooms and separate dressing rooms, is surrounded by windows that face a partially covered outdoor lounge with a sofa, dining area and a spa pool.

All 8 guest suites can be set up as either kings or twins and two on deck guest suites as well as the two VIP cabins on the owner’s deck have an additional sofa bed for children. There is an additional double staff cabin on the main deck and a hospital below.

Aft, a spa with a sauna, hammam, jacuzzi pool and full depth plunge pool on the lower deck includes a light and open aft beach club. A full gym, including a 12-person spa pool outside is located on the bridge deck. All decks are accessible by elevator.

Forward Areti has a helipad for day or night-time use. The tender garages are located under the helideck and house two 9-metre Yachtwerf Meyer tenders in addition to a number of other tenders and toys.

Areti will be at anchor during the Monaco Yacht Show (26-29 September 2018) and can be viewed by appointment only. For information contact Areti is asking Euro 175 million.

The International University of Monaco Yachting Track 2018

Yachting is a difficult industry to break into without experience. Being a niche industry it has been overlooked by mainstream academia. While training for jobs at sea is available, there is a scarcity of professional training for jobs on-land.
The Monaco based International University, IUM, is set to change this with the support of the Cluster Yachting Monaco. For the second year running, as part of the MSc Luxury Management Program the university organized a yachting familiarization course. Students wishing to gain further insight can sign up to the elective course in the second Semester.
While not career specific to a particular area of business, the program explores key areas from charter and sales, to fiscal, regulatory and contractual issues and client management.  

The program is built around a new construction project with specific client requirements in mind. Each module explores a key link in the new construction “value chain” as well as the players, the knowledge and skills required. The students are tasked with presenting a report highlighting the milestones and criticalities in the new construction process including criteria for selecting a broker, a yard, registration, and the contractual, legal and fiscal issues integral to yacht ownership.

Stuart Larsen discussed the role of a broker in a new construction process starting from the initial concept and budget, to the delivery and warranty works. His presentation highlighted the key steps and critical issues that are part of the process and, bearing on his extensive experience, how he handled them during past projects.

At 2,100 GT and with a 6,000nm range, ANTARCTICA complies with Lloyd’s ice-class regulations and is equipped with a commercially approved helicopter landing deck and garage for an Augusta Grande or similar large helicopter.
