New Model: Arcadia 16.80m Sherpa

Arcadia forward thinking is shown again with the new Sherpa, possibly the most innovative yacht to be produced in recent years for what is looks, concepts and layouts.  There is a lot to like about the Sherpa, from its raised living area, to its huge aft deck cockpit available in two different layouts, Mediterranean and Tropical.  The Sherpa takes navigation to a new level, with its very forward located pilot house adjoined with living galley area being somewhat unique. Another important feature for the Sherpa is it's also a semi planning boat meaning she is not a slow boat, cruising at twenty knots and reaching top speeds of 25 with twin Volvo 435hp coupled to an IPS pod drive propulsion.  Inside the Sherpa is a again a comfortable offer with Arcadia offering three interior choices of one large stateroom, two, and three cabin layouts.  A single berth crew cabin, located to port side midships is offered in the single or two cabin layouts. Welcome to the new Sherpa age, if medium sized motor yachts needed someone thinking out of the box, those engineers in Naples Italy really got it right.
