Hi Mate! sad that there is no replys... i'm too would love to build a ARIKI... but I'm having a hard time to get informations about them, as well.   I wish someone that have sailed them, could tell how they really perform in the sea... poiting, speeds... Even pictures of interior are very very hard to find any, quite few out there.... I even have bought the study plans, but there, also, there's not much... or at least, a lot less informations that I was  expecting to get...  Funny thing, is that  the ARIKI is the best performace from all Wharram... also the easiest to building ( considerering his size...) it just not have much living space, but having South Pacific islands in my backyard, I wouldn't mind about having a little berth ... I hope we get here some information... CHeers!!
We're building a Narai Mk IV, but on our blog (buildingtiger.blogspot.com) we have a posting about our visit to Piggy, an Ariki. There are a few interior photos in the post -- its in late August.

hey guys thank's for the replys... Ariki is indeed looking very small inside.  Cheers!

 Thanks for getting back with me.  My Ariki hulls will be done before X-Mas, then I plan to finish her out, look for a an adventurus woman and head for the islands for several years.

Hey DEX thats great!! I'd love to get some more pictures.  Please let me know how the whole building is going...  More and more I'm considering an ARIKI, but for it will take a little while to join this adventure... maybe one day we can have a beer in some where in the pacific... Cheers mate!

I'll start putting pictures up in January.

Nothing stoping us to have a beer on me!

More to come.

I know this one. A long story. Bought by a french guy in canada, arrived in NY around 2007, at my place, without mast. Found for him a 54' one with all sails and rigging. Managed to mast the boat in Norfolk and reached the carribean where it is. A good one.
