What makes Aria S stand out?
Immaculately maintained, she offers a lot of light, modern style and minimalist interiors with an Italian influence. Aria S is a yacht that could be used 365 days per year providing the owners total comfort and space and offering an incredible amount of daily light. Her solar panels of 50 sgm generate over 4 kW of energy too. Every Arcadia yacht has already made its history by incorporating solar panels into their design, reflecting a major growing concern among clients wishing to jump in the yachting eco-friendly wagon.
How many can Aria S accommodate?
Aria S can accommodate up to 10 guests in all comfort in her five cabins; an owner’s suite on the main deck with its 180 degrees view, an exceptionally large VIP which can be converted to form two doubles, and two twin cabins.
What's your favourite onboard feature and why?
Her most notable and eye-catching feature is a convertible sky lounge, which can be electronically opened to the stern or remain fully enclosed. A unique and comfortable area of around 65 square metres takes shape. Another remarkable feature is the sliding walls in the saloon which can transform the space into an open-plan lounge for guests to enjoy, with balconies on both sides.
What type of owner would Aria S suit?
Aria S would suite an experienced owner looking for the volume of a much larger yacht in 32 metres, as well as an entry-level client that wants it all at once; chic design, volume and, above all, eco-conscious performance.
What recent work or refit has the boat had (if any)?
Aria S is relatively young. Aria S was launched just in 2016 and has been maintained in pristine condition since then having a full crew on board and used by the owners very rarely. Therefore, no refits were needed ever since.
Is Aria S suitable for charter?
She has only been used as a private vessel, but could be a great addition to the charter market due to her five-cabin layout and her versatile indoor/ outdoor entertainment areas.
