Yacht: Ariki

Submit Information on this Yacht


Ariki, meaning Chief or leader in Maori, is one of Arch Logan’s big four (the others are Rainbow, Iorangi & Rawhiti). Commissioned by Charles Horton of the Horton publishing family as a combined racing and cruising yacht in 1904, Ariki has been an impressive sight on Auckland Harbour for over a century.

Since her launch she has dominated ‘A Class Yachting’ and has been a regular feature of the revived A Class series in recent times.

Owned by the late Warwick Jones in 2005,  Ariki still holds her tall gaff rig.
