Arcadia Yachts Have Launched the First 100 model

She carries the name Aria S

The first hull in the Arcadia 100 series has hit the water. She is destined for an Italian owner and will carry the name Aria S. Arcadia Yachts developed this model in collaboration with Francesco Guida. The superyacht has 31 m in length and made her first public appearance at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

The Arcadia 100 superyacht has five cabins and an owner suite placed forward on the main deck. The superstructure has a very futuristic look, being composed from large glass panels and 50 square meters of photovoltaic cells. The cells can generate up to 5 kW of electricity, enough to power all the electrical systems on board. The only system which cannot be powered from the photovoltaic cells is the air-conditioning.

Arcadia 100 has a beam of 7.75 m, which is extremely large for this kind of yacht. The large beam means that the crew quarters are spacious, and the tender garage can hold a 5.6 m tender and two Jet Skis. To avoid the greenhouse effect, due to the large glazing area, all the glass panels are filled with inert gas Krypton. This provides up to 18-degrees of thermal cooling from the outdoor temperature.

For power, Arcadia 100 uses twin V8 diesel engines provided by MAN, each delivering 1.000 hp. Top speed is 18 knots.
