Brief History of Just Enough

Creating a custom yacht is usually a matter of turning a buyer’s vision into reality. There can be many changes in direction and ideas along the way, the key to success is keeping these in balance. The exception is a yacht builder building a yacht on speculation. In that case, the builder has to be an acting buyer, hoping to get it right for the ultimate buyer without having to “redo” too many things. In the case of JUST ENOUGH, the yacht started as a “refit” project and ended up a 95% newly constructed yacht with many changes along the way, like putting the vessel into RINA class. The work was performed by Ares Custom yachts with many yacht projects to their credit and were finalists in the International Superyacht Society’s “Best Refit of the Year” competition. Below is a synopsis of the JUST ENOUGH project.

Quoting from the Ares website: “The ARES 140’ was conceived and executed with a unique blend of attributes making her an ideal combination of all of the best a yacht can offer. Her design centered on a striking contemporary silhouette, a trim, yet stable hull for extended passage making and systems and safety equipment compliant with world-class standards.

Let’s start with her proportions. The low profile is conspicuous and elegant, yet also beneficial for improved stability and reduced windage. Her hull is slender and designed for maximized efficiency at sea without sacrificing safety or comfort. At a manageable 140’ she contains accommodations for 20 and has extravagant spaces for entertaining. Her 23’ beam, can fit into standard stern-to slips, and her 6' 9" draft can visit the shallow ports of both the Caribbean and the US East Coast.

Her construction and design are impeccable. ARES 140 is built on a specially prepared existing hard chine semi-displacement hull which is framed transversely and longitudinally. Lightweight, high-performance engines were selected to maintain operational speed, yet lend more space back to the interior. All mechanical systems, including shafting, piping, electrical, HVAC, and steering, use top-quality components and are certified to RINA Yacht Class standards.

When not in use by the owner, the vessel easily lends itself to chartering. All safety equipment and stability is MCA compliant. The robust deck equipment is prepared for Mediterranean applications and heavy use. The lazarette provides an additional laundry station, workbench, freezer and storage space. The tender and jet-skis are on the bow for easy launching when docked stern-to.”

Unfortunately, the original buyer who started the JUST ENOUGH project did not finish it. At 90% complete, she moved on to a new buyer who finished the project and enjoyed the yacht immensely before moving on to a larger one.

The next and present owner was more experienced and previously owned Choy Lee & Christensen yachts that were available for charter. He had not owned an aluminum yacht before but was familiar with aluminum maintenance from owning many airplanes. He personally inspected the entire inside of the hull prior to purchase, even removing the non-metallic tanks to see the bilge underneath, and applied his aircraft maintenance philosophy to JUST ENOUGH. Afterward, the owner took JUST ENOUGH to the next level for charter with additional amenities like a tow behind tender, waterslide, VSAT communications, SEABOBS, and more. JUST ENOUGH has just completed four winter and summer seasons chartering in the Virgin Islands before coming back to the US for required maintenance and surveys for RINA classification and Jamaican flag registries. Gross charter revenue from 2018 until the end of 2022 was $7.9 million; $3 million accounted for the short January to August 2022 year. For a buyer who wants a yacht in the Virgin Islands that generates a lot of cash (some or all tax-free depending on depreciation), JUST ENOUGH is a dream come true.

The owner is offering JUST ENOUGH for sale because he may want a smaller yacht for a while to go back to some areas like New England, which he has enjoyed in the past. Therefore smaller yachts or aircraft trades will be considered. A complete record of all charter revenue activity and list of almost $500,000.00 of recent repairs and upgrades will be provided to qualified buyers. Work performed in dry dock includes many items done years ahead of schedule.


Boarding from the Aft Deck, you will be instantly greeted by the warm teak decks that continue through the exterior spaces of the yacht. The Aft Deck features a spacious dining settee with seating for ten guests as well as a walk-up bar. There is stairway access to both the swim platform and flybridge from this deck.

Head inside to the main salon through the sliding glass doors. The main salon is beautiful and elegant, with its rich mahogany perfectly accented with neutral tones and pops of color. To port is a card table alongside a welcoming sofa. Just forward of the main salon is the formal dining area with plush leather chairs and mahogany table, comfortably seating 12. A pocket door to port provides access to the Stew Pantry, Galley, and Crew Quarters, while to starboard, the companionway leads you to further guest areas.

JUST ENOUGH accommodates 11 guests in 5 well-appointed guest cabins. The Master Suite is full beam on the main deck offering wonderful views through the large portholes. The en suite boasts marble floors and countertops, a Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower, his and her sinks, and private toilet with a bidet. Below Deck are the remaining four guest staterooms. The king and twin staterooms are amidship accessed from the stairway just forward of the dining area. The twin stateroom also includes a pullman bunk. The two queen staterooms are aft, accessed from the stairway off the main salon. All guest staterooms are equipped with flat screen televisions with Apple TV and satellite. All are also en suite with marble floors and counters, as well as their own Jacuzzi tubs with integrated showers.

Heading on up to the bridge deck, the pilot house and captain quarters are forward, followed by the spacious skylounge. The skylounge offers a full-service bar, an l-shaped corner sofa, game table, and entertainment systems. Picture windows provide ample natural light and pristine views of the destination outdoors. Through the glass doors, step onto the bridge deck aft boasting a large teak table with seating for 10 guests to enjoy al fresco dining. This exterior space also features a lounge area as well as access to both the aft deck and sundeck via teak

The sundeck on board is an exceptional space to be enjoyed by all. Featuring a jacuzzi forward surrounded by sunpads, a BBQ grill, and fully equipped wet bar. There is plenty of space to enjoy sunbathing, from the chaise lounge chairs to the sunbeds. There is even more exterior space to be enjoyed on the foredeck, a private oasis that features two sunbeds. The lounge space is separate from the workspace that houses the anchors as well as the launch space for the tender and jet skis.

There are crew Accommodations for 9 with the captain's cabin located on the bridge deck, and the remaining crew accommodations below deck and forward. There is also a crew lounge, laundry facilities, and additional refrigeration.

The yacht is home to many water toys, including a custom slide from the sundeck, new waverunners, and many more!

Additionally, having just completed a yard period and finishing class and flag state surveys, the yacht is truly turn-key and ready to take you on your next yachting adventure!
