About this Palmer Johnson Custom

ARIA was built by the famous and world-renowned builder Palmer Johnson, this 87-foot sailing yacht is a gem in her class. She is a cruising cutter design and was launched in 1975. Her first owner had her for 25-years and the second owner for two years operating charter. Her aluminum hull is well preserved.

The current third owner has owned her for 13-years and made sure ARIA was well upgraded and updated without sparing any expense to rebuild and refit (20-months to complete refit) the entire vessel inside and out. She had new Awlgrip Matterhorn White paint on the hull and mast, new paint inside, new electrical, new plumbing, new electronics, new wiring replaced and separated the AC and DC, new Fisher Panda generator, refurbished Northern Lights generator, new solar panels, new rebuilt engine room, new machinery including rebuilt engines, new heads were fitted with marble countertops, new galley with Corian countertops, new hydraulic swim platform, new certified Burmese teak decks, new Lewmar flush-deck hatches, two EPIRB's, and the list goes on.

ARIA's five cabins with ensuite heads accommodates 10 guests comfortably. The master cabin is aft and captain's cabin is in the bow, with access to the deck at the bulkhead or through the guest cabins, the other three cabins which accommodate up to six guests in single berths.

ARIA is handled by 2 people easily, is well equipped and designed. She is truly a push-button sailing yacht. Her boom-less main sails and the head sail unfurl effortlessly with good speed. The centerboard main and small aft board assist her directional ability in large swells. Both boards were fully refitted and refurbished. She is well equipped with various pitch props, steering jog switch, and bow thruster. The engine was rebuilt by an official Volvo dealer, and her bronze propeller is Hundested variable pitch. All winches were rebuilt as well.

ARIA's large, covered cockpit is excellent for entertaining guests and dining. The cockpit is just behind the helm where there is a new Vitrifrigo refrigerator. There is a sound system and 12V outlet and USB charging ports as well. Drop down covers protect you from unpleasant weather.

The washer and dryer, space for dive tanks and gear are aft, underdeck.
