Arcadia Announces Sale of Sherpa XL Yacht


Italian shipyard Arcadia Yachts has announced the sale of a 23.9 metre model in its Sherpa XL range.

The new-build yacht will be delivered later this year, alongside four other yachts under construction at the Naples based yard.

The contemporary interior by Hot Lab provides either a three- or four-cabin layout. In the former, the galley is set in the skylounge, while in the three-cabin the galley is on the lower deck.

The eco-friendly Sherpa XL yacht is equipped with Arcadia's trademark solar panels, which provide up to 2kW of clean electricity.

The cockpit features narrow bulwarks to provide guests full views, and there is no tender launching or technical equipment to spoil the view as the tender is kept forward of the engine room and launched through a side hatch. There is also a sizeable skylounge on the upper deck served by a bar and pantry facilities.

The Sherpa XL is powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 1,050 main engines, predicted to reach a top speed of about 22 knots with a long-range speed of 10 to 12 knots achieving a 1,500 nautical mile range at 10 knots.

The latest sale of the Sherpa XL yacht comes as the yard said it had implemented a number of financial initiatives to support its workers through the coronavirus pandemic. It is also taking advantage of the “the social safety nets put in place by the Italian government”, it said.

Yard director Ugo Pellegrino said: “The tranquillity of our craftsmen is very important to us, as it will allow us to start out again together, with new enthusiasm”.
