New hulls of the A85 and 105 were delivered in May and will be exhibited at Cannes Yachting Festival (Sep 10-15)

Arcadia Yachts is proud to announce the recent launches two yachts in the month of May: hull no.16 of the A85 and no.3 of the A105. These deliveries confirm the Italian shipyard’s good performance on the market and its financial strength, further supported by the fact that a new A105 and a new A85 are already in the assembly shed.

As the result of a very specific choice, the Italian shipyard always has an on-spec hull and deck ready for the assembly of every model, in addition to a “ready to sail” model of A85, Sherpa XL and Sherpa. This proves, on the one hand, that the shipyard is financially solid and confident about its product vision and, on the other, reveals the practical nature of the shipyard, which allows future owners to benefit from much shorter delivery times while still enjoying considerable freedom to customise the yacht’s style.

The A85 hull no.16, delivered to an Italian owner, confirms the Italian domestic market’s increasing interested in comfort, efficiency and care for the environment, which are typical of Arcadia and which are concepts that are already very successful in international markets from northern Europe to South America and the Far East.

Arcadia A105, a winning yacht

There is great expectation for the Arcadia A105 hull no.3 that appears very different from hull no.2 presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2018 and that recently won the World Superyacht Awards in the “Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts 30m to 32.9m” category. Among the reasons that led the judges to give the award was the close connection of the A105 with the sea and the great focus on eco-sustainability, shown by the presence of high-efficiency solar panels.

All these features can be found on hull no.3, which unlike its predecessor will also be used for charters. It will sail for six months in the Mediterranean Sea and for six months among the Caribbean islands.

For this reason the internal layout was reviewed, with four cabins and a small living room in the forward area, designed to transform into a suite with a sofa bed if needed. The shipyard, which has confirmed its ability to offer owners truly semi-custom yachts, worked not only on the layout but also on fabrics and materials. Dynamic and sunny colours are made alive and engaging by the white surrounding background. The final effect is to convey a feeling of freshness and light on board during the whole day.

Arcadia’s green factor

From the solar panels that eliminate the use of generators when at anchor, to the large, thermally-insulated windows and the high-efficiency semi-displacement hull that significantly reduces consumption, everything on board the Arcadia yachts is designed for a unique experience at sea in direct contact with the surrounding environment. Arcadia Yachts is continuing to invest in research and development of cutting-edge technology to create yachts that can perfectly balance sustainability, design, conviviality, safety and ease of use.

Both yachts will be exhibited at the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 (September 10-15), jointly with the new Sherpa XL, which will make its world debut at the French yachting event.
