Overview
 
The sailing yacht ARABELLA is a stunning 160’ tri-masted staysail schooner custom built by Palmer-Johnson in 1983, with a total re-build completed in 2000. ARABELLA is one of the most versatile large sailing yachts on the market with an exceptional charter history. Her welded aluminum hull, aluminum and teak decks and modern rigging combines an extraordinarily strong, seaworthy hull and durable yacht with the beautiful lines and charm of a classic schooner tall ship. ARABELLA recently completed her five-year ABS inspection and has a current US Coast Guard inspection certificate for 49 passengers plus crew for a total of 56 for overnight charters and 149 passengers for day charters.

Refit
 
ARABELLA was launched in 1983 as CENTURION, designed by MacLear & Harris and built by Palmer & Johnson Shipyard in Wisconsin, with an original length of 110’. The current owners purchased the vessel in the 1990s and completed a total refit in 2000, including an addition to the mid-section of the hull of approximately 46’ to include 20 cabins and a completely re-built interior, the addition of a third mast and all new rigging and sails. The total refit included all new electrical,
plumping, power and auxiliary power, running gear, electronics and navigational equipment, communications, lighting, galley and food service, safety and lifesaving equipment – all re-designed to specifications meeting the requirements for use as a Coast Guard inspected commercial charter vessel. The hull extension was completed by Kelly’s Shipyard in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, with the interior refit work done by Newport Shipyard, Newport, Rhode Island. 
The current vessel is now a three masted staysail schooner designed for sailing with a limited deck crew having five sails that are on hydraulic roller furlers. She has a clipper bow, round bilge, full keel with mid-ship extension, keel-hung rudder and transom stern. ARABELLA is constructed of welded aluminum, with 1/2” thick bottom plating, welded aluminum decks and a teak and plywood overlay by
Teak Deck Systems. Five transverse welded aluminum watertight bulkheads divide the vessel’s hull. Her superstructure has a trunk cabin forward followed by a raised deckhouse and an aft trunk cabin.
