All Details at:

This owner is ready to sell. He has one boat too many boats and is ready and willing to negotiate.

The Princess Arianna is a virtual floating mansion. Whether your goal is to cruise from Baja to Alaska or just to entertain your friends on leisurely harbor cruises, this is the vessel. This beautiful low hour craft is owned by an engineer who has had the engines and all mechanical systems meticulously maintained and serviced. She has a bow thruster for ease of operation and is stabilized for cruising comfort. This boat features three large staterooms with ensuite vac-u-flush heads and a tub in the spacious owner's cabin, two salons including a full office with dinette, a wonderful party deck, and a laundry room. Twin detroit 8v92s grace the walk-in engine room. Galley up with a full width lower helm/nav station. There is a large enclosed aft deck with a beautiful teak table that seats eight. The wing doors provide access to the full walk around side decks and bow. The flying bridge is spacious and has access from both the lower helm and the aft deck. The boat deck features an L-shaped settee with storage under and holds the 11 foot Novurania RIB with 25 HP Yamaha.

Now for the all the details:

The interior of the vessel features beautiful honey colored teak. Throughout the feeling is one of warmth, safety and comfort.

The master stateroom is entered down a private spiral staircase from the aft starboard side of the main salon and has an island queen bed with copious amounts of storage on both side. There is a private head (with vacuflush system) and tub/shower to port. To starboard is a huge closet with interior light. Side ports and two large ports aft allow good natural lighting. There is an anchorwatch/gps alarm located right next to the bed (for an added sense of safety at anchor.)

The VIP and Forward Staterooms and the lower salon (with built-in office desk) are accessed from a separate starboard side staircase next to the lower helm. After dropping down into the lower salon, forward is a stateroom with vee-bunks, fresh water electric head and shower. Aft of the lower salon is the VIP stateroom with a single over a queen size berth and to starboard is the ensuite head (with vacuflush) and integral shower. Off of the VIP stateroom is the laundry room with full size washer and dryer Aft of this stateroom is a full width, stand up engine room with doors both fore and aft for easy access.

The aft sun-deck, main salon, lower salon and galley are all very roomy with storage everywhere. Below the sole in the lower salon is a giant storage space extending the full width of the vessel.

The enclosed flying bridge is very comfortable and will be the focal point of many parties. The flying bridge also holds the shore boat aft (easily launched with by electric crane) with railings all around. There are covers on most seat cushions and full canvas covers for all the rails. (The brightwork is in very good condition). Most through hull and shut off valves were replaced in 2004. The hull has been painted and has all new striping. Bottom paint was new in 2004. The salon teak floor has been re-varnished.

There are ample spares and cruising gear aboard for extended cruising.
