Luxe et al are delighted to announce that Arcadia Yachts have been shortlisted for Power Yacht 25-40 Metres Award in The International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2017.
Arcadia 85S is designed to be a family yacht, which combines different exterior functions – actually over two decks, giving guests more possibility to spend time together. While interiors profit by the advanced aesthetic sensation of “open space” and closer contact with nature thanks to the full floor to ceiling windows. The layout and the functional living concepts of Arcadia 85S are the result of a construction evolution: the linear design of the superstructure and the vertical line of the bow allow a better use of every single available internal/external space. Living capacity is wider than other yachts of the same size. The uniqueness of Arcadia’s project is finding in the design solution to integrate solar panels into a yacht with navigation performance.Arcadia 85S hull #1 has improved her soundproofing capacity index, replacing the PVC, for the fore part of the hull, with Balsa core sandwich structure. The advanced semi-planing hull which allows efficient performances together with the very light superstructure in aluminium significantly reduces weight and fuel consumption and related running costs of its low power engines. Arcadia 85S features on this special edition a new sky lounge concept, convertible into a sheltered third-deck, completely closed and protected by 360 degree openable windows that can be raised up to meet the hard-top, exactly as it happens for the cars. Therefore, 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 are fitted the wheelhouse, a lounge with sofas and coffee tables, wet-bar and, externally in the aft, a sun deck.The key idea was to improve the living space of the A85 project and increasing at the same time the convertible use of the sky lounge area. Actually the sky lounge can convert into a fully open/fully closed area so to take profit of the natural sea breeze during summer and at the same time, let the captain or the owner use this area during colder days thanks to the AC system. Delivering a natural and immersive experience in the nature is part of the Arcadia Yachts brand philosophy with a clear will to let people on board really feel the environment with sight, olfaction and touching the natural breath of the sea.
