The innovative and uniquely Italian shipyard Arcadia Yachts has announced the world debuts of its Arcadia 85S, the all-new “special” edition of the Arcadia 85 with sky-lounge, and Arcadia 100.
Both will feature alongside the water debut of the entry level model Arcadia Sherpa, at the next Cannes Yachting Festival (6th to the 11st of September 2016).
After her successful debut during Boot Dusseldorf, in January, the Sherpa will be under spotlight again with two other new models.
All three yachts will be available for sea trials during the show.
All the three new models feature a new sky-lounge concept, convertible into a sheltered third-deck, completely closed and protected by 360 degree opening windows that can be raised up to meet the hard- top, exactly as it happens for the cars.
This allows the whole upper-deck area becomes much more flexible and usable with any weather condition, being air-conditioned in very hot climes or bad weather, or left open and aired if needed, as per any traditional sky-lounge.
On the third deck can be fitted the wheelhouse, a lounge with sofas and coffee tables, wet-bar and, externally in the aft for big models, a sun-deck.
The boats have a semi-displacement fiberglass hulls, NPL type. This style of hull is named after the National Physical Laboratory of England where tests were conducted to determine its shape for the best ratio of length to beam in terms of hydrodynamic efficiency.
Studies were implemented by Arcadia’s technical department prior to adopting the NPL as Arcadia’s hull, resulting in excellent sea keeping qualities and noise reduction, for exceptional comfort. This advanced hull, together with the light Arcadia superstructure, allows very satisfactory performance with low-power engines.
This significantly reduces fuel consumption and related running costs compared to other yachts of similar dimensions.
Solar cells are integrated between external and internal surface of double-glazing panels fitted on top of the largest part of the superstructure.
The solar panels – each composed of hundreds of high performance solar cells – installed on board, an advanced and ecological system, supplies from 3,5kw up to 5kw enough to guarantee self sufficiency energy for much of the on board equipment and electrical systems, the likes of refrigerators, water circulation, toilettes, lights, recharging batteries, but excluding the air conditioning system.
This also results in a significant saving of diesel oil, less pollution and more comfort on board thanks to the substantial reduction of noise, vibration, no gas emission while enjoying your time close to the swim platform.
Each double-glazing panel contains a special gas named Krypton, which guarantees a high thermo-isolating coefficient, up to 18° of thermal cooling between interior and exterior temperatures, the equivalent of a 20 cm brick wall.
