2017 Arcadia A85S
Having revolutionised the international nautical market since 2010 with a string of yachts designed to deliberately blur the confines between interior and exterior, the ARCADIA YACHTS yard looks set to astonish the sector once again with the new A85S, a boat that delivers an incredibly generous amount of guest space for its 25.9-metre length.
The layout and functional aspects of the living space aboard the A85S are the result of a deliberate evolution of the yard’s construction processes. The linear design of the superstructure and vertical line of the bow guarantee optimal use is made of every single inch of available space, both interior and exterior. The perfect case in point is the exceptionally generous living area which is significantly larger than that found on other yachts of the same dimension and, in fact, results in around 100 square metres of communal space on the main deck alone.
The uniqueness of the ARCADIA YACHTS philosophy in general and the A85S in particular springs from a desire to place people at the centre of each new project. This changes the whole meaning and experience of seafaring which becomes much more than just an opportunity to luxuriate in the gentle rocking of the waves and the warmth of the sun. Instead it allows all aboard to enjoy exceptionally close contact with the surrounding environment.
At 25.9 metres (84’11”) in length, the A85S has a maximum displacement of 75 tonnes. It also sports twin 730 hp MAN diesel engines which guarantee a maximum speed of 18 knots. The new yacht cruises confidently at 16 knots too. Equally, it can cruise in displacement mode at the slightly lower speed of 12 knots to allow those aboard to experience an even greater sense of connection with the sea, savour the sea breeze on their faces and enjoy the most pleasurable part of any cruise: simply being underway. The A85S has a range of approximately 850 nm @ 12 knots.
2018 Arcadia A100
The A100 is built from GRP with aluminium balconies on the main deck. Like all ARCADIA yachts, this model sports a semi-planing hull with a LOA of 31.06 metres. Its 29.19-metre hull length and generous 7.75-metre beam are unusual for a yacht of these dimensions.
The A100 has a GT of slightly over 200 tonnes, guaranteeing a unique amount of onboard space in addition to volumes and solutions normally only found on much larger yachts. These include over 50 square metres of openable glazing along its sides to allow owner and guests to enjoy the sea breeze. This very direct relationship with nature and a green focus are the new A100’s salient characteristics, in fact.
