by Malcolm Maclean
The 31 metre motor yacht Ariana has been sold with Eliad Hagiladi of Yacht Marine acting for the buyer and seller in an in-house deal.
Designed by Kerim Demir,Ariana was built in epoxied mahogany by Turkish yard Mengi-Yay and delivered in 2005 with her most recent refit in 2016. BTA Design gave her a stylish interior with high gloss panelling and wooden floors accommodating 10 guests in five cabins consisting of a main deck master suite, two VIP suites and two twins, all with entertainment centres and en-suite bathroom facilities. Also, five crew are accommodated in three cabins.
Extensive glazing gives the main saloon panoramic views and an open outlook, complemented by cream upholstered U-shaped seating grouped around a large coffee table to port facing an entertainment centre including a large flatscreen television and a stereo surround sound system. Forward is a formal dining area with seating for 12 guests at a table mounted on two stainless steel pedestals.
The sheltered aft deck has proved popular with charter guests, offering the opportunity to relax and dine al fresco at a set of chairs and a dining table while the upper deck comes with a full wet bar, barbecue grill, Jacuzzi and dining area partially shaded by a hard top.
Twin 820hp MTU diesel engines power her to a cruising speed of 11 knots while she is capable of reaching 15 knots with the throttles open.
