Luxury Sailing Yacht Aries For Sale

Aries is a 115ft ketch, built and designed by the famous Camper & Nicholson shipyard in Gosport, United Kingdom. The framing of the keel was laid in 1939 but because of the 2nd World War and family circumstances. Aries was first launched in 1952. Her first owner was the tobacco tycoon R.J. Reynolds.

Designed for long North Atlantic and Arctic cruising, ARIES was given an extremely seaworthy structure and voluminous hull form, which gives her interior space and comforts not normally found aboard many (racing) classics of this size, giving ARIES an exclusive elegance of style, solidity and reliability.

Since spring 1997 the yacht has been used for charter operation with charter activities (€32,500 / week) increasing to up to 25 weeks per annum in the past few years of operation. The first two winters were spent in the Eastern Caribbean and the San Blas Islands, Panama and Costa Rica respectively. After that, ARIES remained in the Mediterranean all year round, with Cannes as her home port in winter. The reason for this being to significantly extend the Summer season (late April to early November) and enable quiet maintenance in winter. All this has guaranteed a profitable organisation while ensuring an optimum condition of the yacht.
