What is in a Name?
Ariadne is a motor yacht, unlike most others. Much like the Greek goddess she is named after, Ariadne is reminiscent of the glory and time nearly forgotten. The 124-foot (37.8 meters) was built in 1978 and refitted in 2018. She is the true definition of a classy, luxury motor yacht.
According to Chief Stew, Amanda Weyers, the owner, wanted to create an experience reminiscent of the old luxury cruise liners he used to travel on as a child. Ariadne was the name of the first cruise liner he traveled on.
A Timeless Experience
“It’s not your standard yacht,” Amanda said. “It’s more like an elegant home,” she continued. The interior is Art Deco, with a modern flare. Amanda said the owner wanted to capture a “timeless elegance” with her interior design.
The owner has thought out every aspect of the experience thoroughly, down to entrusting the crew to use his Grandma’s linens for dinner service, and even the hand towels have her initials on them. “He enjoys the finer touches,” Amanda said.
ARIADNE Where Old Meets New
There are even original menus from old cruise liners in the dining room, from which the chef and crew plan to recreate a few dishes for guests. Additional touches include a dinner bell to summon guests and a gold Art Deco cocktail cart for aperitif drinks. Guests enjoy dressing up for dinner to fully partake in the luxury experience of times past. “It certainly should be a memorable experience,” said Amanda.
The living room is cozy with its gorgeous paneling and a glass relief of the Greek goddess Ariadne perfectly illuminated with backlighting.
The rooms are just as luxurious, with cloth wallpaper and perfectly varnished woodwork. The bathrooms are impeccably superb, but not in the wrong way. Each bathroom has a color-coded (they match the wallpaper) BVLGARI shampoo, soap, and conditioner set. Now that is luxurious!
The aft deck is a great spot to enjoy meals when it is nice out. The second-story deck also offers the perfect space for sunbathing and a good-sized Jacuzzi for anyone looking to relax after some water sports.
There is also a bar, a barbecue, and an additional dining area. Enjoy a relaxing dinner alfresco.
Kaitlyn is the second stew, sometimes chef and deckhand. She basically can do it all. She is a very friendly and genuine person. Both Amanda and Kaitlyn are highly knowledgeable about the boat and its history. Their can-do attitude is contagious, and they are a pleasure to be around.
Ariadne includes all the typical watersport toys, including kayaks, SUPs, and snorkeling equipment. You may also arrange diving excursions.
