|Ariel - the name|
Contrast 33 is well-known for her
slender design and the shape of the hull which makes the
below decks area very roomy. The Swedish built boat was a
success from the very beginning. A fast sailing, modern
and roomy family yacht without compromises was the
unanimous judgement. She belongs to the classics and has
been a winner in club rarcing for many years.
Ariel - this was a name both my children and I could agree on. To them it's Disney's mermaid - a perfect name for a tiny lady of the sea.
But the "original"
Ariel's the "airy spirit" who does Prospero's
bidding in The Tempest by Shakespeare. Having been
imprisoned by the witch Sycorax in a pine tree, Ariel is
magically released by the exiled duke Prospero, who
engages his services in thwarting Prospero's enemies,
cultivating romance for his daughter, Miranda, and
regaining his dukedom.
