Arcona Yachts has launched its latest model, the Arcona 385, said to be a quick, lightweight and easy-to-manage family performance cruiser.
The new exterior styling of the 38ft yacht provides increased natural light in the saloon and galley owing to the new larger hull and coach roof windows. There is also a larger instrument panel above the companionway to incorporate the instruments for the helm. The side decks are wide and the cockpit is spacious, with twin carbon wheels and the table recessed into the cockpit floor.
“The Arcona 385 marks a significant step change in the design of our latest models, with more work than ever done to the mould without compromising on the sailing performance. Her predecessor, the Arcona 380, was launched in 2013 and has won many racing accolades,” says Nicolas Broberg, CEO, Arcona Yachts AB. “We’ve seen a clear trend in requests for an open transom recently and I understand why. Not only does it allow more light into the cabin, but it also provides even more accessible stowage in the lazarette – a clear refinement from the Arcona 380, so the Arcona 385 will have an open transom as standard.”
Using the latest materials and advanced techniques the Arcona 385’s lay-up, which incorporates a 20mm Divinycell foam core, employs the latest vacuum infusion technology. All bulkheads are bonded to the hull and deck for added strength. At the heart of the boat is the galvanised steel cradle, taking the dynamic loads of rig, mast, and keel, ensuring that the boat is strong, stiff and responsive.
With a spacious galley, the saloon has been designed for optimum entertaining purposes and taking in the full 3.8m beam of the yacht there is plenty of space around the saloon table. The Arcona 385 has three cabins as standard, with a two cabin and separate shower version also available, and there’s a choice of Khaya Mahogany or Scandinavian Light Oak interior.
Arcona Yachts will be showcased by UK broker SE Yachts at the Ocean Village Boat Show 11-20 September, where you can find out more about this model and the others in the Arcona fleet.
