Classic displacement luxury expedition 44 tug Ariete Primo
Quite three years of refit involving more than 100 people. The story of the re-birth of Ariete Primo.
Ariete Primo, is a tug boat built in 1967 by the English shipyard, Richard Dunston Ltd. For decades it serviced the ports of the world before entering into retirement.
In 2004 some incredible restoration work begun on her for almost 3 years.
The transformation was marked by an overriding commitment to balancing past and present, along with a complete overhaul of the interior. A great love of history and the boat itself were the distinguishing features of the structural renovation work carried out by a professional team to render the 44-metre Ariete Primo (9.45 metres in width) both comfortable and welcoming. As such the binnacle, the anti-fire springal and the large lookout are all original. As is the “Panama Eye”, the distinctive oval opening from which the sailor looked out to better assist the captain in navigating the snares of the canal.
