At 124 feet, AERIE is a lightweight composite, semi-displacement, tri-deck motor yacht with proven excellence in performance, technical innovation, and dramatic design. Named after an eagle’s nest, she has interior styling that features exquisite textures and textiles with an artful and sometimes playful homage to the theme of eagles. And like an eagle, she’s capable of soaring at high speeds; this efficient-performance motor yacht suggests fluid flight in both design and capability.
She presents a graceful sculpted profile from bow to stern, noteworthy for the absence of visible hardware. The strip of dark windows along the main deck is unobstructed by fastenings or mullions, and her side entrance doors are discreetly recessed. Using finite element analysis and their renowned expertise in composite construction, Delta incorporated carbon-fiber supports to keep the yacht strong, reliable, and lightweight.
The use of dramatic angles and graceful curves distinguishes the interior floor plan, a visual harmony that showcases many exciting individual design hallmarks. The entrance foyer aft features a magnificent floor inlay of two eagles circling in flight: a mosaic constructed of thin, feather-grained slices of petrified wood, tiger’s eye, and fossilized ivory, set in a circular field of Crema Delicato marble and Costa Smeralda quartzite. The spacious main salon conveys a light, subtle ambience in a current of cool ocean colors, with natural linen–colored wool carpeting hand-stitched in ribbed and striated textures. Forward to starboard, an elegant stairway curves in angled treads around a fluted rectangular column, creating elegant transport throughout her levels. The result is a yacht of enduring beauty, precision, and practicality, as rare and as magnificent as the eagle herself.
