We then opted for a selection of desaturated colours, choosing classic marine shades but making them more modern at the same time."Photo: Michele FedericoPhoto: Michele Federico"The A85 is an iconic model, not just for Arcadia, but for the entire yachting market,” comments Ugo Pellegrino, Sole Director of the Italian shipyard."

In a moment as delicate as the one we are living in, launching hull number 18 brought to mind how much we struggled – and won - to begin with. It also gives me the boost of extra energy that I need to steer the Arcadia project towards its new phase."Photo: Michele FedericoPhoto: Michele FedericoWith exteriors from the drawing boards of Francesco Guida Design, the all-GRP Arcadia A85 superyacht can reach a top speed of 18.5 knots and cruises comfortably at 16.5 knots thanks to twin Diesel MAN 730 hp engines.
