Aria is a beautiful yacht from the famous American, Palmer Johnson shipyard in Wisconsin, USA.
She has had several refits including new engine in 2002; rigging replacement in 2005; new sails 2006; new electric furlers in 2007; new generator 2008; and most recently a refit in the UK at Pendennis Yard with: - both centre boards removed and overhauled; backstays reconditioned (Navtec); 2 new bilge pumps and associated pipe-work replaced; bow-thruster pump over-hauled; water maker over-hauled; steering ram rebuilt; pipe-work replaced and new electric drive motor fitted; refrigeration system over-hauled; part of the main engine exhaust replaced.
She features 3 guest staterooms and 2 crew quarters. The master cabin is aft with en-suite full size tub and shower; two guest cabins each with shower; a passage cabin (for crew or guests) and a double crew cabin forward. Plus of course an ample saloon, adjoining chart table area and galley. The whole interior has the atmosphere of classic glamour.
She has a full keel with 2 inline retractable keels giving her a draft of 2.6m with them up and 6.4m with them down (controlled via electric winches). Her minimum draft makes it possible to enter shallow moorings and with both her centre boards down her draft of 19'8" gives her good beating capabilities.
Update Dec 2013 - ARIA will be in Martinique over Christmas, then to Aruba in January and later Panamá and Galapagos in March..

ARIA has a good solid aluminium hull and has had various upgrades – as listed above – but we believe she will shortly be in need of a re-paint (the paint is dull). Some attention is also soon needed to deck paint as the paint is bubbling in areas (this is not bad and it would also be possible to repair in patches and apply a new coat of anti-skid paint.
