In recent years, a new trend has emerged among yacht builders: smaller super luxury vessels with sailing capabilities that allow us to move with more agility and have access to more marinas and piers around the world. This novel idea has paved the way for a series of models measuring 115 feet in length, which seems to be the perfect size for this new trend.

Twenty-three feet wide, the Princess 35M boasts generous outdoor spaces. The upper level is for leisure and includes a solarium, a Jacuzzi and a great table for more than eight guests, which can be protected by a sliding roof. The main level has a spacious aft deck with French doors that open to a splendid lounge decorated with leather sofas and fine wood paneling. On the lower level, you’ll find the main stateroom with panoramic views, a study, two closets and in suite, as well as other complementary cabins, a superbly equipped kitchen and quarters for the crew. From the point of view of performance, the Princess 35M has different engines; the most powerful are two MTU 16V 2000 M94 diesel engines capable of reaching a maximum speed of 27 knots.
Arcadia 115This splendid vessel— a little over 26 feet wide— with cutting edge design is distinctly modern and sustainable. This luxury yacht model places great emphasis on the amenities and comfort of its ten passengers and crew. On the upper level there is a large terrace for entertainment, a bar and a table for 8. In the interior, a stunning movie theatre with a posh U-shaped sofa faces a large LED screen. The command post below is close to a large Jacuzzi in the foredeck. On the main level, a huge living room, a dining room with bar area, a table for ten diners and a fully equipped kitchen. The master bedroom boasts a dressing room and in suite studio. The guest quarters— all with private baths— and the cabins for the crew are also on the lower level. Arcadia, a company that offers sustainable solutions for yachts, provides alternatives such as solar panels for electricity, non-polluting materials and hybrid or electric propulsion systems, among other environmentally-friendly options.
San Lorenzo 118
This model is slightly longer than the others. Nearly 118 feet long and with a width of about 26 feet, its amenities are very similar to those offered by the aforementioned yachts, but San Lorenzo 118 stands out for its exterior design and more classic and conservative interior, which still manages to look clearly sporty. The vessel highlights its main staterooms with hydraulic folding balconies, which increase the outdoor space and allow more expansive views. Although the SL 118 comes with the same MTU engine of the Princess 35M, thanks to its design, it is a bit more agile with a maximum speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24 knots. ■
