The newest model from Arcadia Yachts should be ready for delivery next year. She’s the Arcadia A105.
The Arcadia A105 (actually coming in at 103’5”, or 31.56 meters) is part of the shipyard’s A range of semi-custom yachts. The other models in that range start with the A85 and end with the A115. All have superstructures primarily featuring thermal glass, additionally incorporating solar panels. The solar panels feed a battery bank that in turn powers the hotel load.
Styling and interior design for the Arcadia A105 come from Hot Lab Yacht & Design. You might remember that last year, the Italian yard announced it was collaborating with the studio. The model was called the A100+. The A105 appears to be identical, having the same LOA and same 25’6” (7.8-meter) beam. Regardless, the shipyard does say that the concept behind its projects is to adapt them each time to customers’ requests.
The buyer for the Arcadia A105 has three decks for relaxation and entertaining. Entertaining seems to be a particular priority, in fact. On the main deck, for example, the Arcadia A105 can host about two dozen people for a sit-down dinner. It’s due to the nature of the saloon (below) and adjacent alfresco dining area. The latter, on the aft deck, can already seat 12 for meals. But, the crew can rearrange the saloon’s lounging configuration for dinner for the same head count. To enhance the outdoor feel, they can slide open the doors to each side of the saloon, too.
Options await one deck up, too. The Arcadia A105 skylounge encompasses nearly 323 square feet (30 square meters). If it’s kept open to the sunning area just aft, guests get a significant indoor-outdoor lounging deck as a whole. In fact, the sunning area is even bigger than the skylounge, at 377 square feet (35 square meters).
With a volume of just over 200 gross tons, the Arcadia A105 should see a 15-knot cruise speed. The twin MANs should permit a top speed of about 18 knots as well.
