Project: Arcadia A96

Presented during an online press conference, Arcadia has revealed project details for its upcoming A96 model, a triple deck super yacht currently under construction and set to launch in mid 2023.  Arcadia says the A96 design is a cross inspiration between its entry level Sherpa and A for super yacht series, although the first renderings do make it look a much polished offer, different to the other Arcadias both smaller and bigger.  The Sherpa A96 will sit in between the A85 first model of the brand launched in 2010 and delivered in fourteen units up till today, and the A105.  Having a distinctive look to other Arcadia yachts it seems Francesco Guida the designer of all previous Arcadias is not involved in the A96, with Igor Lobanov credited for the interior.  The top deck design is distinctive Arcadia design language though, while the lower deck is a more stream lined affair looking cleaner and similar to other offerings in this size, with a less Arcadia utilitarian look. The Arcadia A96 will offer guest accommodation for ten guests in five cabins including which is an owners stateroom on the forward part of the main deck.  Aft deck space while a bit less open to the other Arcadia's is still possibly the most spacious in the category, which can also be increased thanks to four flipping bulkheads, two aft, and two optional at midship which serve as balconies to the inner saloon.  The Arcadia A96 is to be powered by quadruple Volvo 900hp or optional 1000hp engines with IPS pod propulsion which according to estimates will give a 24 knots top speed, a sixteen cruise giving a  600 nautical miles of range, and a long range of 2000 nautical miles possible at ten knots.  Arcadia means also clean energy, and the A96 is solar power enhanced and able to store 4.5kw of power and or eight to nine hours of silence without the need to use a generator for running onboard utilities.
