ARETI I & ARETI II – “Twin” 127' Tri-Decks
Burger Boat Company, Manitowoc, Wisconsin, U.S.A. — Within a 4-hour period, 404' of new yacht construction projects were signed at Burger Boat Company.
Starting with a contract for a 150' (45.7m) Tri-deck, Time for Us and followed by the signing of two identical 127' (38.7m) Tri-deck yachts, Areti I and Areti II. Without question, this is one of the most historic moments in Burger’s history, the signing of the largest motor yacht combined with the contract to design and build twin 127' (38.7m) Tri-deck motor yachts.
The identical yachts will be owned a young Russian industrialist with a global business and leisure interests. This coincides perfectly with the recent completion a new 48,000 sq. ft. (4,460 sq. meters) world class manufacturing complex.
Areti I and Areti II will be built upon the very successful and well-proven 26’06” (8m) beam hull platform (SIS-W, Lady Grace Marie). These vessels will be ABS+A1 AMS and MCA certified continuing an uninterrupted trend at the shipyard.
The five-stateroom yachts will have a traditionally styled interior motif of raised panel African cherry (makoré) with several interesting features including a large commercial galley, full sauna room and much more. The vessels will be powered by Caterpillar engines, have zero-speed stabilization and full “glass bridge” navigation electronic systems among numerous other technical attributes.
Both yachts will be launched in the spring of 2007. Areti I will be based in the U.S. for cruising the Eastern Seaboard, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Areti II will be based in Europe for cruising the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Aegean Seas and the Balkans. The concept of two identical yachts is really quite practical for an owner splitting his time between Europe and the U.S. Why cross the Atlantic if you really don’t have to?
