Third Arcadia 105 under construction
by Miranda Blazeby
The yard announced the news at the Cannes Yachting Festival where the first hull in the series is currently receiving her public debut.
The yacht, which was delivered in July, is the third Arcadia yacht built by the owner in seven years. She is based on the same platform as the Arcadia 100+ and was sold in March 2018.
Arcadia director Ugo Pellegrino said of the owner: “His choices reflected his navigations philosophy, which is something we are very familiar with: large convivial spaces for daytime and cabins that are genuinely able to offer exceptional privacy and comfort well beyond the category.”
The design was created in collaboration with the Hot Lab design studio, which worked on both the exterior design and interior decor.
The 199GT superyacht features a fibreglass hull and a beam of 7.6 metres and is populated inside with black and white wooden tones. The main saloon features dark carpeting surrounded by lighter flooring and ceilings, which mark them out as passageways.
Standout features include a convertible sky lounge, that measures 35 square metres and a main deck spacious enough to accommodate 10 guests at mealtimes in the shaded cockpit. A large formal dining/ meeting room meanwhile also sits forward of the main saloon. The yacht also features sliding glass doors and fold-out balconies that create an airy terrace upon the sea.
Accommodation is for up to eight guests across a full beam master suite, a double and two twins on the lower deck. Crew accommodation meanwhile allows for a staff of five.
Power comes from a pair of 1,000hp MAN V8 diesel engines for a top speed of 17 knots and comfortable cruising at 15 knots.
