-Numerous technological innovations increase the owners’ and guests’ comfort aboard

-220 square metres of space, interiors and exteriors at disposal of its guests in every moment
- Internal layout with 3 or 4 cabins
- Side garage large enough for a 4-metre tender (or larger)

- Exteriors and interiors designed in cooperation with the Milan-based Hot Lab design studio

It has been ten years since the first A85 was presented to the public, marking the introduction of new concept of yacht. During these ten years, ARCADIA YACHTS has gained a starring role on the stage of international yachting, delivering about 30 vessels and always placing Owners and their needs at the heart of every project.

ARCADIA YACHTS celebrates its tenth anniversary with the world debut of the new SHERPA XL at 2019 the Cannes Yachting Festival, confirming the innovative role of the Italian shipyard with features typical of the 85-90 feet segment

FROM “MYSTERIOUS ITEM” TO TREND-SETTER IN 10 YEARS

“ARCADIA YACHTS introduced itself with a concept of motoryacht that stood out from the crowd,” declares Ugo Pellegrino, Sole Director of the Italian shipyard. “It was not just the design and the layout of the interiors, there were also a number of solutions that allow guests to enjoy yachting in a different way, closer to the surrounding element, the sea, nature. The brand’s aim was (and is) a different life style that is more wellness-oriented. A quiet yacht, where there is no need to hold onto something to stand when sailing, a yacht that does not vibrate and on which people can relax on a sofa and enjoy the view... Ten years ago we believed in and worked on a different approach to yachting, in which hurrying should not be a constant. More people have become aware of this, which inevitably leads to saving lots of fuel and, therefore (consciously or otherwise), to considerably reducing the environmental impact.”

From solar panels that allow to reduce generator use when at anchor to the large, thermally insulated windows and the high-efficiency semi-planing hull (which allows to considerably reduce fuel consumption), everything aboard ARCADIA yachts is designed to provide a unique experience of life at sea in close contact with the surrounding environment. ARCADIA YACHTS is still continuing to invest in research and development so that it can always be a leader in the creation of yachts in which sustainability, design, conviviality, safety and ease-of-use are balanced to perfection.

The open areas on every ARCADIA yacht allow to become fully part of the marine environment, while the larger than mainstream players aft-decks unite the yacht and the sea, as if the sea itself were a natural extension of the yacht. The full-height windows, the side openings and the innovative glass panels (which can be lowered and raised like car windows) generate spaces in which the threshold between inside and outside becomes imperceptible, while closed spaces dissolve and are absorbed by the surrounding natural environment.

In ARCADIA yachts, the natural environment is more than just celebrated - it is also, and perhaps most importantly, respected. The large openings limit the use of air conditioning thanks to pleasant sea breezes that can freely blow through the yacht. The solar panels integrated in the top of the yacht reduce generator use, which also allows to better appreciate natural sounds when at anchor. The use of cutting-edge glass panels with considerable thermal insulation bears witness to the shipyard’s commitment to maintaining its environmental principles.
