is a 157 foot mega yacht featuring three masts with a staysail schooner rigging. She has 20 staterooms, that can accommodate up to 40 guests, with all the modern luxuries you’d expect on a mega yacht – all rooms have own shower, head and individual climate control. “Arabella” has teak decks, a Jacuzzi, cushioned sun deck as well as a covered aft veranda. Her main salon is spacious and can offer a seated dinner for up to 48 guests. The salon also features a beautiful varnished mahogany bar as well as a buffet station. All of this creates a unique, and unforgettable, sailing experience.
Steering a 157 foot schooner under full canvas in 20-25 plus winds was exciting, with the wind tearing at my hair. With beautiful blue skies and turquoise seas in 80 degrees, what could be better?

Everything is taken care of. You don’t have to worry about anything. You just sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery, fresh sea air and fantastic ports of call to explore. In a very short time, we all got to know each other and everyone felt like family to me. I learned a lot, and enjoyed sharing this brief moment in time and space on this lovely boat called the Arabella.
What do a film producer , a tech consultant, a dad and his son have in common with a group of Puritans? They all boarded a boat named Arabella bound for Massachusetts, albeit 385 years apart. Unlike John Winthrop and crew the modern passengers sailed in comfort on an ASA sponsored voyage to Martha’s Vinyard, Nantucket and Cuttyhunk islands. All fair winds and following seas–mostly. The only ones missing were the professor and Mary Ann!
Absolutely no better way to relax… A full day of sailing aboard the “melts my heart” Arabella, lobster for dinner and slow trip back to the schooner during golden hour. Fantastic!”
