The Arcadia 85 model features double glazed glass with solar panels integrated into the superstructure, a feature that distinguishes the Italian brand and guarantees maximum comfort. It allows the batteries to recharge and provide power for onboard services while reducing the use of generators. Also, the hydrodynamic hull design diminishes water friction, thus reducing fuel consumption.

Equipped with two MAN R6-730hp diesel engines, the Arcadia 85 generates lower CO2emissions into the atmosphere. The vessel comes with sophisticated systems that provide wastewater treatment to avoid contamination. This new model from Arcadia Yachts has a range of over 500 nautical miles, a top speed of 18.5 knots and a cruising speed of 16.5 knots.

Arcadia 85 has a futuristic look marked by the linear design of the superstructure and a vertical arch that makes better use of all available spaces. The main deck is covered with two layers of reflecting glass, creating a feeling of spaciousness. Moreover, the folding solar panels allow natural light to flood the interior of the ship illuminating the spaces and making them look even larger. On deck—especially on the stern side—all the details are conducive to enjoying the sun and socializing with friends.

The Arcadia 85 is a dream come true for yachting aficionados looking for luxury and exclusivity—and maximum respect for the environment.
