Projects: Arcadia 135, Arcadia 115

Arcadia Yachts continues its innovative inspiration by presenting two bigger projects to its first 85 model. Pictured above is the largest of the projects the 135, which is to be the flagship from this South Italy, Neapolitan boat builder. As the rendering above shows the 135 is another innovative project with a three deck explorer yacht feel to it. As is expected solar panels will be another theme of the 135, just as it is for the 85. Accommodation for the 135 will be a five guest cabin, with the owners stateroom on the main deck. The crew will have also four double bunk cabins to fore, a personal lobby, and a captains room on the upper deck just behind the pilot house. The 135 will have a full displacement hull. After delivering the first 85 in the fall of 2009, hull two in early 2010, three being put into the water in this time, and four currently in construction, the Arcadia 115 will be the second model, not only in size but also to be presented by this Naples builder. Arcadia advised us that the tooling for the 115 has started early this Spring and the yard is hoping for an owner in order to pursue the construction of this model with the hope of a 2011 delivery. With the 115 Guida Engineering keeps the hybrid evolution as seen on the 85 with a sporty explorer feel to the exterior looks. Considering this is a three deck yacht this is no small task. Again spaces are abundant everywhere on the 115 with the upper third deck having record breaking sizes. Accommodation is for a five or four cabin lower deck, plus an owner stateroom on the main deck. The 115 also offers an interesting entertainment area with pool on the fore deck. The 115 will also again feature the Green attitude of the 85 with Solar panels everywhere, electric propulsion available on request, black water treatment, and zero speed stabilization. Power for the 115 will be from twin MAN 1224hp. www.arcadiayachts.com
