Ariana

1987 Warwick 46 | asking $175,000

If you are looking for a truly  fast , safe , and comfortable  blue water cruiser that can handle just about anything Mother Nature  an throw at you . Then Ariana  is the boat for you.Ariana was constructed under the supervision of the owner / surveyor and has many custom features like horizontal stringers every 12".Then the present owner has lovingly and carefully methodically gone through the entire vessel, paying attention to every detail to ensure that she is ready to make offshore passages by just adding provisioning.Details like good catches on all doors and drawers and lockers , so nothing opens accidentally in a sea way.The sheer heavy displacement and stiffness ensures that she never pounds when coming off big waves., ensuring great confidence in the integrity of the vessel.Ariana can easily be sailed short handed , and whilst there is no water maker or generator she carries  sufficient fresh water  to be self sufficient for long periods of time at sea .The present owner raced her occasionally in offshore races with much success.He is selling her only because of his age now, when you view her you will find it very hard to find any faults in the vessel.
History of Ariana She has been based out of New England until 2019 and now out of Antigua. The original owner had this vessel built at Sen Koh Shipyard in Taiwan and personally oversaw construction with a surveyor in 1987 and then she was shipped to the US 1n 1989 but was never fitted out when I purchased her in 1992. I have since owned her and have over 50000 offshore miles with her including 12 trips to/from New England/Caribbean and 11 Bermuda 1-2 races where we always placed(Bermuda1-2.org...see the race archives) My personal best singlehanded B1-2 race to Bermuda is 77 hours, including 100 miles of light air at the end. She is a true ocean greyhound and can outpoint most boats. The teak deck and cockpit have been professionally refurbished including TDS system full depth recaulking, selected plank replacement, and screw removal /replacement with epoxy and full depth bungs in 2021. The rudder was removed for internal inspection and professionally rebuilt with new foam, biax/epoxy layup and fairing in 2022. She sailed from Virginia to Antigua in November 2019 and has been laid up ashore since June 2020, then launched and recommissioned in March 2023. All systems/electronics are commissioned and functional."I was looking for an offshore vessel that could support singlehanded offshore passages. Upon receiving the construction plans from the designer I knew this was the one. She was built at the Sen Koh Shipyard in Taiwan under the owner's supervision with a surveyor in 1987 and then was shipped to the US in 1989 and was never commissioned. i purchased the vessel in 1992 and delivered to New England. She is built of solid FG with FG hat stringers 12"OC and 2" FG floors 20" OC. All Bulkyeads are properly glassed in with foam to eliminate hard spots. There are no liners which result in a quiet boat in a seaway. Her displacement and deep forefoot ensures no pounding and a comfortable ride offshore. All drawers, sole boards, and heavy equipment have positive fasteners and retainers for offshore passages. After over 50000 offshore miles I can attest that she is still a great sea vessel ."
