With open plan saloons and minimalist staterooms, Mariu has six double cabins, the yacht is ideally set up for families with children. An elevator connects all four decks including a very large sun deck that can be flexibly shaded for sunbathing or an afternoon nap. The main deck office has recently been replaced with a 200 bottle wine cellar allowing guests to enjoy a large variety of refined wines. Armani’s ideas and vision have leapt from catwalk to cakewalk. Here is the chance to charter the lifestyle.

MARIU is now an RYA training establishment for personal water craft (P.W.C or jet skis). As such, a temporary license can be awarded to guests aboard MARIU, valid for the duration of their stay aboard. Guests between the age of 12 to 16 can receive the certificate, but they need to be accompanied by a licensed adult aboard the jet ski, they cannot ride alone. All guests who wish to receive the license, must do a 1 hour training session with the instructor (crew) aboard MARIU. The training is very low key, enjoyable, and frankly hard to ‘fail’, but must, none the less, be completed in order for the yacht to fulfill the obligation of safety aboard.
