Inside the main deck, glass panels can be raised and lowered like the windows of a car, emphasising the connection between the inside and outside worlds.

Accommodation on board is for a total of eight guests in four cabins. Large and open, the master cabin sits on the lower deck, equipped with panoramic windows extending down to the water line. The VIP cabin and two further twin guest cabins, each with their own bathroom, also sit on the lower deck.

The second hull features a rejigged layout penned by Hot Lab Design and includes a new layout for the galley, which is closed and features a two-door fridge, hob, oven and large storage areas.

New materials have also been used in the skylounge, including colonial essence oak and light grey Alpi to increase the perception of space on board.

Hot Lab’s head of design Enrico Lumini said the glass used on board was “an integral part of the interiors”.

“The idea was to stress the different functions of the skylounge by inserting materials that did not obstruct the view,” he added.

Speaking about the second hull, Arcadia director Ugo Pellegrino said the yard “didn’t rest on [its] laurels after the success of the first Sherpa XL.”

“We listened to the suggestions of our owners and decided to work on various details, to make this new unit the perfect example of how Arcadia can always look forward,” he said.

The result is a yacht that is “perfect” for owners wanting to day cruise and owners wanting to “experience a long cruise with high levels of service.”

Power comes from two IPS 1350 engines for a top speed of 23 knots and range of 1,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
