Arcadia Yachts will present their latest creation, a new long-range entry level model called Sherpa, at the coming Cannes Yachting Festival in September. The yacht is designed to offer exceptional storage space both on deck and in interior spaces.
At 16.8 metres and with a beam of 5.5 metres, Sherpa is able to offer a tender garage with a volume of 247 cubic feet which is remarkably large for a vessel of this size. In partnership with Volvo Penta, Arcadia yachts have developed a highly efficient hull that is improved by new technical studies. The yacht comes with the option of two different superstructure options; an open deck for day cruising, and a salon deck that has been designed for long distance cruising.
The production of Sherpa forms part of the Italian yard’s recent extension in their GRP-constructed range, with remaining models 85, 100 and 115 completing the line. Sherpa continues Arcadia’s focus on eco-friendliness and fuel efficiency by offering a fuel consumption of just 43litres/hour at a displacement speed of 12 knots.
