Arcadia Yachts has announced the sale of a new A105 just a few months after the project, developed by the yard in collaboration with the Milan-based Hot Lab studio, was officially launched to the world.
The builder claims the sale represents a 'coming of age' for the yard that it believes has now shaken off its niche status in just eight years since its foundation, to produce yachts that are "reference points on the world market."
“This result was achieved in part by an investment of over 30 million euro in recent years,” declared Ugo Pellegrino, sole director of the Italian yard. “Our production facility is one of the most modern in the entire Mediterranean and, despite the fact that we have yachts worth a total of around 40 million euro in build, we are still only using a part of our actual production capacity. This is a very important aspect of the Arcadia Yachts set-up because it means we can tell potential clients we are negotiating with that we can deliver all our models by the end of the 2019 season.”
The aft deck aboard the A105 can comfortably seat up to 12 people for a formal dinner, while the lounge area has space for a further 12 guests. The latter can also convert to a further dining area offering the owner the possibility to having more than 20 people aboard to dine at once.
This same principle was applied to the concept for upper deck as a whole. Here both interior and exterior spaces are mixed to create a further relaxation area. Offering just under 30 square metres of space, the convertible sky lounge can be used 365 days a year and opens aft towards the sun lounge which, at 35 square metres, doesn’t just provide owners with a further convivial area with direct sea contact but also shelters the whole of the aft deck.
There are several different interior layout options that play with the inside-outdoor ethic and feature contemporary, minimalist décor to complement the exterior styling.
