Arcadia’s quiet new edition, the stunning £7.8m superyacht offers passengers impressive sea views. The yacht was designed based on Arcadia’s design philosophy which focuses on the way an owner uses a yacht, rather than just its looks. The new Arcadia 105 was built with the same design philosophy focus of having the specific owner in mind.
Ugo Pellegrino, the Director of the Italian yard said that the owner’s navigation philosophy was something that they were very familiar with. The A105 would be the owner’s third Arcadia yacht. Pellegrino added that the owner wanted convivial space for daytime use and cabins that offered privacy and comfort beyond what was typical in the category.
The sense of space is featured across the yacht and alongside its enormous sliding windows, and some balconies fold out to create terraces over the water. The owner wanted the deck to be converted to a playroom where he could entertain his friends. The design of the bow area is reportedly unique, and there are windows on every surface, including the ceiling giving a sense of being in a glass studio, and offering impressive views of the water.
The decor is black and white and has light-coloured floors with wood accents that extend a modern feel. The sky lounge on the upper deck is something to look out for, with a hardtop and windows that enclose the lounge, it is a perfect area for dining. The area can not only be fully heated and protected, but the windows can also roll down automatically to let in fresh, ocean air across the cabin. One can enter the sun lounge through the rear doors. And the joined (700-sq ft) areas make a wonderful place for socializing.
The main deck where there is the rear cockpit can seat 10 people for alfresco meals and the fully-connected forward salon can accommodate around 12 more guests. The vessel houses eight guest beds spread over four cabins, and there’s enough bed space for five crew members.
The 105 reportedly is powered by twin 1,000 hp MAN diesel engines that deliver a top speed of 17 knots. And at 12 knots it is believed to consume only 3.5 gallons per mile. The solar panels power the house systems, just like the other Arcadias, and boost its green credentials. The 105 is virtually silent at night or anchor attributed to the 400-sq ft network of solar panels.
The new edition has marvellous interior and exterior spaces and is built with the utmost respect for the environment. Guests will enjoy A105 which is featured with authentic green technologies and the superyacht promises to set new standards for the class.
