The Arcadia 85 will be one of the largest yachts appearing at Boot Düsseldorf (a.k.a. the Düsseldorf Boat Show) next month. Arcadia Yachts is debuting a new interior arrangement for the megayacht. It’s aimed at owners who want a bit more privacy between their guests and the crew.
To date, the Arcadia 85 has featured what Arcadia Yachts terms the Loft Concept. It’s a layout in which the megayacht’s saloon, dining area, and helm are open to one another. Owner-operators particularly like this arrangement. So do buyers who enjoy talking with the captain and observing navigation operations. The new Arcadia 85 changes the main deck up a bit. Instead, the megayacht has a separate wheelhouse, accessed via a port-side foyer from the saloon and dining area. Two helm chairs plus a crew mess for four people are contained in it. As for the saloon and dining area, they’re still open to each other, occupying nearly 377 square feet (35 square meters) aboard the newly rearranged yacht. Slide open the doors to the aft deck, where additional lounging and dining takes place, and the Arcadia 85 offers 861 square feet (80 square meters) of social space.
Not everything has changed aboard the newest Arcadia 85, of course. You will still find a main-deck galley, adjacent to the foyer and containing a handy side-deck door. Four staterooms accommodating you and your guests are below decks, as are two crew cabins, each with a head. Arcadia Yachts does, however, optionally offers a crew stairway from the helm to the crew cabins. Normally, the Arcadia 85 has crew-quarter access via a foredeck hatch. If you opt for the stairs, the hatch access becomes the emergency escape.
Arcadia Yachts is represented in the United States by HMY SuperYachts.
