Signature Series Motor Yacht:  Arabella


Arabella is the newest addition to the Al and Alma's Fleet!  New for 2017 Arabella was built to be the finest yacht of its size and provide a similar cruise experience to our magnificent Bella Vista.  Wide open spaces complemented with the highest quality furnishings available make Arabella a best-in-class cruise experience for groups of 50-90.  The Main Deck, wrapped in satin cherry wood with brass and granite accents has spacious seating accommodations for 42 guests and a beautiful glass wrapped buffet solarium revealing spectacular views of the bow.    There are two restrooms and a service galley on the Main Deck.  The Main Deck hosts two open air spaces, one on the aft veranda with steps leading to the Sun Deck as well as one on the bow with integrated seating and beautiful teak flooring.  The brass wrapped stairway from the main deck guides guests to the upper deck (Vista Deck).  The interior of the Vista Deck is climate controlled featuring a full service bar, tabled seating for 24, and unrivaled forward views with regular allowed access to the pilot house!  The vista deck features sweeping views through large viewing windows with wide doors that open to the joining sundeck with open air exterior seating for 30 guests.  The sundeck features a deployable enclosure ensuring comfort and use of the exterior seating in all weather conditions.  Arabella provides premium cruise service to the Port of Excelsior leaving from our private pier at the Excelsior Commons or our elective Port at the Wayzata Depot.
