According to local media, the Aria SF had been ordered in 2019 from ISA Yachts, a luxury boat manufacturer in Italy. It was only delivered in July of this year to Scudieri and would make an official debut in September.

The superyacht was the 17th largest yacht produced by the ISA, according to the Super Yacht Times website. It had 5 bedrooms and could accommodate up to 10 passengers in addition to the 7 crew members.
