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 that he used to travel on when he was 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. According to Amanda, the owner wanted to capture a “timeless elegance” with her interior design.

The owner sIt seems every aspect of the experience has been thought out thoroughly by the owner, 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 recite a few dishes for guests. 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 should be a memorable experience,” said Amanda.

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’s luxurious!

The aft deck is a great spot to enjoy meals when it is out. The second-story deck offers the perfect space for sunbathing and a good-sized Jacuzzi for anyone looking to relax after some water sports.

The Crew

Kaitlyn is the second stew, sometimes chef and deckhand. She basically can do it all. She is hot and in a very genuine way. 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.

Ariadne is available for charter in the Northeast for the summer of 2019. Then she will return to Florida for the winter season, where she will be available for charters in the Bahamas and surrounding areas.
