ARIADNE 124' fully-custom Breaux Bay Craft offers a unique value for a yacht of her size and price, boasting multiple BEST IN CLASS features.
An official nominee and finalist for "REFIT OF THE YEAR in 2021" by Boat International Magazine and Media, leaders of the high-end yachting world.
A successful charter yacht, ARIADNE is a one-of-a-kind vessel.
A 124-foot fully-custom-built American motor yacht, constructed in 1979-1980 by the renowned Breaux Bay Craft shipyard in Louisiana, and brought into the modern age between 2018-2022 with a complete multi-million-dollar rebuild at Derecktor Shipyard and Lauderdale Marine Center.
A true gentleman's and family yacht, ARIADNE is now in the style of the classic transatlantic ocean liners. She exudes rare elegance with extraordinary quality and attention to detail.
Nothing about this yacht is commercial - except her strength and power. ARIADNE brings back the glamour of the golden age of yachting.
ARIADNE has three beautifully-appointed decks designed with both entertainment and relaxation in mind. Her classic lines and sleek profile evidence refined style and spaces.
Breathe in the fresh salty-tinged air and bask in the sunshine on ARIADNE's new, enormous sun deck. With an unusual three access points for a vessel this size, the sun deck boasts the space and features of a yacht many times the cost and size. Slip into the jacuzzi, enjoy a cocktail at the bar, and make the most of al fresco dining with a new propane barbeque grill.
ARIADNE's main deck offers generous outdoor sun pads and shaded seating forward, wide side decks running the length of the vessel, SCUBA equipment for 4 (including 8 tanks), and a 3-level beach club aft featuring covered dining, lounge, and water levels. Inside are the large salon, separate formal dining room, VIP cabin that converts to a private study with desk, and spacious bridge with viewing sofa and captain's office area. Every inch has received detailed attention, including the luxurious day head, which boasts eglomise glass wall panels, a custom scalloped art deco eglomise glass mosaic floor, gold-washed fixtures, and illuminated Daum crystal faucets.
A sanctuary featuring the brand-new, full-beam master stateroom with lounging, work, and dressing areas, a sumptuous queen cabin, and an elegant convertible twin/king cabin. Each is coordinated with color and textiles to its own ensuite bathroom with individual custom mosaics.
ARIADNE's rich interiors provide a refined and luxurious ambience. From the original cherry and burled maple paneling to beautifully handcrafted stonework, ARIADNE features thoughtful touches and inspiration from the bygone era of transatlantic liners, exuding an unmatched level of elegance and authenticity.
Warm cherry paneling, cabinetry, and columns are combined with new custom furniture and antiques. ARIADNE's salon also showcases contemporary style for a truly unique space. The room's focal piece on the forward wall, an illuminated specially-commissioned, etched mirror featuring an image of the famous statue from Antiquity of the Greek goddess Ariadne, pays homage to the yacht's namesake while bringing natural light into the center of the room.
With service items of silver, crystal, and custom gold-rimmed French china patterned after the first class service on the SS Normandie, dining on board ARIADNE captures the essence of traditional trans-Atlantic elegance. Rich wood finishes make this separate room perfect for an evening of fine dining.
A sanctuary of grace and serenity, the master stateroom features book-matched cherry paneling, a king bed, plush custom furniture, including a cloud-like velvet soda and a vintage chrome art-deco desk lamp (optional), and elegant finishes. The custom desk chair is copied from the originals on the Queen Mary. The bathroom flaunts a stunning hand-laid mosaic floor of marble, gold leaf, and mother of pearl, a large spa tub, a separate shower, and exquisite French crystal Lalique faucets.
With a main deck VIP queen that is convertible to a private study with desk, a large convertible twin/king, and a large queen cabin, ARIADNE offers luxurious space, style, and comfort for every guest. Each cabin features the finest bedding and linens and its own large color-coordinated bathroom boasting nickel and crystal fittings, slab stone, and individual custom mosaics.
