1980, Halifax, Canada: Dentist Dr. Gene Jensen bought Aries and decided to adopt the yacht for charter purposes. Subsequently, the boat was stripped down to a bare hull after which she was built up again to incorporate a more practical interior for guests and all new systems. It was also then that the gaffed mainsail was replaced with a bigger Bermudian rig. During this restoration high quality and safety standards were followed to ensure continuing Lloyd’s Register 100 A 1 classification. Aries then operated as a charter vessel during the 80′s until she was dismasted in a Caribbean hurricane in 1989. Financial problems forced the owner to sell the boat, after which she was transported to the Netherlands. The new owner started with the planning and designs for a new restoration, which were never executed because the Dutch fiscal authorities claimed her. Adventure NV then bought the yacht Aries when she was auctioned in 1995 with the plan to fully restore her in the Netherlands so that she could be operated trouble free for the years to come. 1996/97 The Netherlands: The restoration was conducted with a number of carefully selected Dutch specialist companies; layout and a larger sail plan were prepared by Olivier van Meer. The objectives during the restoration were clear; entirely new systems, wiring, piping, appliances, engines, crew quarters and two luxury en-suite guest cabins instead of four in the area forward of the saloon. All was to be carried out with the highest standards Dutch yachtbuilding can offer and the yacht was to incorporate the highest level of comfort possible while maintaining all the style and warmth of a classic vessel. A year and a half were spent from initial planning to seatrials. The following list refers to updates carried out in this refit:- Internal – Engine replaced Rebuilt gensets Rewired bilge pumps Sewage tank membrane pumps Watermaker Waterheater Switchboards (both high and low voltage) Battery chargers Inverters Electrical wiring throughout in new cable channels Autopilot hydraulic pump Hydraulic steering system Air conditioning system, tubing and air handlers in all cabins Jacuzzi pump Hydrophore water pressure system and renewed hot and cold water piping throughout Fire detection system Intercom system Navigation and communication systems Galley and household equipment Entertainment equipment External: Main and mizzen masts and booms,bowsprit Stainless steel standing rigging Running rigging Sail handling winches Rebuilt original anchor windlass with new electromotor Biminis with fixed stainless steel frames Capping rail Replaced inferior carpentry works, stripped all woodwork and re-painted
