With hull number one already under construction at the Italian shipyard Arcadia Yachts, the brand has revealed full details of the Arcadia 100’. Measuring 31.06 metres, she features a new concept flying-bridge, convertible into a sheltered third-deck, completely closed and protected by the side windows that can be raised up electrically to meet the hard-top.
With the new flybridge, the whole upper deck area is given extra versatility, and is usable in any weather condition. On the third deck the wheelhouse is fitted out with a lounge with sofas and coffee tables, wet-bar and, externally in the aft, a sun-deck.
The yard proposes many internal layout variations, either four or five cabins, and is available to develop custom interiors and different finishing solutions in order to satisfy the buyer’s expectations. The Arcadia 100' standard version has the full beam owner's suite amidships on the lower deck, with the bed offset to starboard facing forward. Behind the bed are the washroom with bathtub, sanitaries and twin sinks, and the dressing room with adjacent vanity area. Port is an area dedicated to relaxation, with armchairs and side- tables. All the features are integrated in a spacious environment, illuminated by large openings in the hull. Forward are two twin cabins, as well as a VIP cabin.
On the main deck, the grand living area directly connected to the cockpit, features a large salon and dining area, creating a single, bright and airy space, characterised by the transparency of the vertical side crystals and the solar panels on the ceiling. The whole living area on the main deck can be transformed into a “patio” on the sea thanks to sides sliding doors and gunwale balconies, creating an al fresco dining area.
In regards to her performance, her twin 1,000hp engines give her a top speed of 18 knots. At a cruising speed of 16 knots, her fuel consumption is approximately 230 lt/h, whilst at economical cruising speed between 8 to 10 knots, the consumption drops down to less than 50 lt/h. The Arcadia 100 cruising range is also favoured by low generator usage thanks to the electrical energy supplied by the solar panels that cover almost all of the superstructure.
