New Model: Arcadia 23.98m Sherpa XL

It has been ten years since Arcadia was born, and delivered at the time the first and daring A85 model, for sure one of the first green conscious super yachts.  Arcadia quickly followed the A85 with more models up in size till the 115, and then in 2017 it started looking downward by presenting the eighteen meter Sherpa.  Now thirty Arcadia units later in the sea, the Italian Neapolitan boat builder presents the new Sherpa XL, the second small size model in its range, two centimeters LOA shy under the 24 meter super yacht size.  The Sherpa XL designed by the Hot Lab studio is as any all other Arcadia different and daring, with an exterior design inspired to a working tug boat, with a split level shear line and a way forward located pilot house.  The exterior of the Sherpa XL takes over 60% in length, while the interior area located forward and upward features an L-shaped lounge sofa, and central helm station with two helm seats.  There is a further option here to have a galley located to port side, replacing the standard layout with a lower galley to port side, this replaced by a fourth cabin with en-suite head.  The lower deck offers a classic arrangement for the remaining three cabins, with a full beam owners cabin, forward VIP, and third guest cabin to starboard.  Crew quarters for two persons are located forward.  The Sherpa XL is standard powered by twin Volvo 800hp, with an optional choice for the large 1000hp units.  Propulsion is Volvo forward looking dual propeller IPS pods.  Tender stowage is unusual with the Sherpa XL stowing the tender in a garage at midships which opens at starboard side.
