New Model: Arno Leopard 43M

Continuing its aim into bigger sizes Arno shipyard launches its second current large model the 43M, which follows the 46M presented in 2008. The 43M continues the Super Sport Yacht philosophy, with exterior design entrusted to Andrea Bacigalupo, and the interior to Cristiano Gatto. The 43M apart being luxurious wants also to present a practical design helping living elements join with those of the open sea life. Worth to note the incredible space of the main deck having a length of eighteen meters, which offers comfortable living areas. The lower deck offers four double guest cabins; owners to mid ship, VIP to fore, and twin guest room. Crew accommodation located to fore peak is for seven berths, and this area includes a lobby with saloon and galley. Interesting notes of the 43M are the Jacuzzi bath on the invisible sport flybridge, and a tender garage with space for three personal water crafts, including a RIB up to 5.65 meters in size.
