After the success of Arianna, SG Private Wealth Advisors has revealed exclusively to SuperYacht World today that a second yacht has been commissioned for the owner. Arianna II will be significantly larger than her 50-metre sister, at over 65 metres, although the first Arianna’s volume makes her the largest 50-metre on the water.
While Arianna was built by Delta, the build yard for Arianna II has yet to be chosen. “The process of choosing a shipyard is also going to be different this time,” says president of SG Wealth Advisors Dovi Frances. “The opportunity to win this contract is open to every shipyard. We want Arianna II to be built with the same record-breaking legacy of Arianna; however, this is a massive project and we want to make sure we offer other shipyards the chance to share their vision, creativity and design capabilities with the owner. Delta was an obvious choice for Arianna three years ago and is a great candidate this time around.” It is hoped that the yacht will be beginning construction around January 2014.
Arianna recently appeared in an advert for Fiat with actor Charlie Sheen and rapper Pitbull (read more here), and her marketing strategy is something of a departure from that of other superyachts. “Since we started working on Project Arianna two and a half years ago, we have done things in an untraditional fashion”, adds Frances. “This next project is no exception.”
