Further price drop on motor yacht Ariete Primo at Yachtzoo
by Malcolm MacLean
_Ariete Primo _was built in 1967 by Richard Dunston as a long-range tug boat and underwent a complete rebuild in 2006 to convert her into a luxury yacht of the highest quality. This superyacht now has totally new machinery and equipment, apart from her powerful engine and propulsion system. The re-build was followed in intricate detail by a fastidious and meticulous owner who wanted to retain the character of her former identity while incorporating all the new systems and comforts of a superyacht. Exotic woodwork and furnishings throughout create a warm and cosy interior and every detail has been carefully designed for total comfort and relaxation.
