New Model: Arcadia 115

On 14th November an important step was done by Italian boat builder Arcadia, who launched its second model the awaited 115 sold to a French client and titled M'Dream.  The Naples boat builder follows similar lines to the first 85 model, although size requirements determined a three deck configuration versus the more sleek looks of the smaller sister.  Still the lines are similar, as is the concept of modernity and innovation.  But the Arcadia's although being a futuristic based design have that retro tug touch to them which I do like.  The top third deck is a full entertainment area plus the pilot house to fore, while the forward part of the main deck features the owners stateroom to fore.  The other area of the main deck features the relax lounging and dining areas, and a very spacious galley with a dinette.  The lower deck offers three or four guest cabins choice, all located in the middle ship area.  The forward part features the crew area; with lobby, L-shaped settee and four double cabins.  Power is from twin MAN 1224hp engines.
