Arcadia Yachts launches 18th A85

Arcadia Yachts has launched the 18th example of its first model, a decade into production.

“The A85 is an iconic model, not just for Arcadia, but for the entire yachting market,” says Ugo Pellegrino, sole director of the Italian shipyard. “This model broke the pattern in one of the worst moments in yachting history.

“In a moment as delicate as the one we are living in, launching hull number 18 brought to mind how much we struggled – and won – to begin with. It also gives me the boost of extra energy that I need to steer the Arcadia project towards its new phase.”

The company says that the linear design of the Arcadia A85, and the vertical line of the bow, allow optimal use of every single inch of available space both interior (the new décor has been created in collaboration with Hot Lab) and exterior.

“When renewing the decor of the interiors, we focused on small style changes to create a fresh, modern mood that was suitable,” says Enrico Lumini, Hot Lab’s head of design. “The wood essences, the marble in the bathrooms and the leather and fabrics are new. We then opted for a selection of desaturated colours, choosing classic marine shades but making them more modern at the same time.”
