Arcadia to show new A85 motor yacht design at Dusseldorf
by Tom Isitt
Italy’s Arcadia Yachts will be showing a new version of their Arcadia 85 at the forthcoming Dusseldorf Boat Show in the New Year.
This yacht is based on the successful Arcadia 85 with Francesco Guida applying the same innovative design to this semi-displacement hull built in composite. His design has been guided by eco-friendly principles and features an abundance of natural light and some ingenious technological innovations. The accommodation is for eight guests in a master suite and three cabins.
On the new Limo version, the saloon and the dining room are now integrated in the same living area, giving more than 80 square metres of continuous space on the same level. From the dining bulkhead to the sundeck, guests can enjoy a 14 metre walkway along the main deck, with uninterrupted views all around. A spacious lobby leads to the lower deck cabins, to the galley and to the wheelhouse, creating a perfect filter between the guest and the crew areas.
The galley now has a direct access to the external starboard passage through a wide door which allows for easy crew circulation around the yacht. A stairway (optional) allows a direct access to the crew quarters (two twin-cabins with en-suite bathrooms) from the bridge.
