We unveil all the details of Arcadia A100, a one-of-a-kind motoryacht featuring a flybridge which turns into a third deck.
If the fiberglass construction and the semi-planing hull (31.06 meters overall) follow the traditions of the shipyard, the LH of 29.19 meters by 7.75 of beam are unusual on yachts of this size. Arcadia A100 has a gross tonnage in excess of 200 tons, making on-board spaces pretty unique and ensuring volumes and solutions typical of much larger yachts: such as 50 square meters of opening windows.
Aracadia A100: choose your layout
The yard offers many variants of interior layout, with four or five cabins, so as to meet the needs of any owner. The main deck is directly connected with the sky lounge and the cockpit, and houses living room and dining area in a single convivial area, while to bow the standard version includes a “family room” measuring 30 square meters. The floor-to-ceiling windows and the presence of solar panels give this yacht an exclusive and very modern look: the double glazing panel incorporating photo-voltaic cells on the upper section of the superstructure is a characteristic feature of each Arcadia model. The entire living area may turn into a large patio on the sea thanks to the sliding side doors and the terraces.
Hull number 1 of Arcadia A100 is the M/Y Aria S and sports a five-cabin layout, with the owner’s located forward of the main deck. The bed is in the middle, facing the bow, while bathroom and dressing room with the vanity area just beside are perfectly integrated. Thanks to full-height side windows and glass ceiling, the owner can enjoy a view of the horizon up to the sky. On the lower deck a VIP apartment of 35 square meters is served by two bathrooms and a private living area / office with TV area. This large suite, with a movable bulkhead amidships, can be divided into two comfortable cabins, each with a bathroom. In addition to another two guest cabins, the lower deck houses a large crew area and a garage for a 4.45-meter tender, two jet skis and water toys.
Arcadia A100: the third deck is convertible
Arcadia A100 features a new concept of sky-lounge, which turns into a third bridge entirely closed and protected by side windows that can be raised up to meet the hardtop, exactly like in a car. Therefore, interiors become more flexible and usable in all weather: there’s air conditioning and heating when it’s closed, and it can be enjoyed like a traditional fly when you want to breathe the sea. The third bridge is equipped with helm station, saloon with sofas and coffee tables, a wet-bar and an outer sun terrace to aft.
The hull of the Arcadia A100 is called NPL after the National Physical Laboratory of England which run the tests to determine the best shape and length-to-beam ratio, in terms of hydrodynamic efficiency: tests aimed to achieving efficient performance with limited power. This significantly reduces fuel consumption and the related maintenance costs, when compared to those of similar sized yachts. Currently Arcadia A100 with two MAN V8 engines (1000 HP each), reaches a top speed of about 18 knots and a cruise of 16 knots. At 14 knots, fuel need is just 150 liters per hour, while at 10 knots it is further reduced to 50 lph.
The high cruising range of A100 is also increased by the reduced use of generators, as electricity is produced by the solar panels that cover almost the entire superstructure. The new generation uses monocrystalline cells with eight sides each (instead of four), for a greater efficiency. If before 3.5 Kw were produced, today the panels generate nearly 5 Kw: about 40% more.
