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.


Delivered by the American yacht manufacturers Ares Marine, JUST ENOUGH is a stunning example of a Tri Deck Motor Yacht boasting the amenities and features of a yacht of much larger size. JUST ENOUGH offers an experience of a lifetime where one can relax in the most sumptuous surroundings. Accommodating 11 guests in 5 exquisitely appointed staterooms, including a full-beam Master Stateroom with marble ensuite.

For those moments of rest and relaxation, head for the top deck space, which hosts a Jacuzzi, bar area, and generous sunbathing areas with sun loungers. For those more active and in search of an adrenaline rush, take your pick of an extensive range of water toys, including a waterslide, jet skis, exhilarating seabobs, and much more. Water lovers can make use of the snorkeling gear in the warm, crystal-clear Caribbean waters where fish of every color of the rainbow can be seen.
