Arcadia Yachts has sold the fourth 115 hull in its innovative range of eco-friendly cruising yachts.

The latest 35-metre Arcadia 115 has been sold. The yacht’s striking lines offer wonderful internal volumes, while the hydrodynamic hull shape – which originated at the UK’s National Physical Laboratory – offers significant fuel savings and comfortable seakeeping. The 115 can cruise between 8 and 17 knots with little change in trim.

Inside on the main deck, floor-to-ceiling windows bring in plenty of natural light, while balconies either side of the dining room further open up the space and connect with the outside environment. On the upper deck, the lounge (again with huge windows) connects with a ‘terrace on the sea’ aft and a second formal dining area. The 5kW photovoltaic panels on the top of the yacht provide sufficient power on a sunny day to run the refrigerators and freezers, plus lights, fans and pumps, without the need for a generator, the yard says, which makes sitting at anchor quieter and more environmentally friendly. The standard layout on the 115 is a four-cabin version, with two doubles and two twins.

“The sale of the fourth Arcadia 115 confirms our production and visionary strategies over this model. You can see from the outside that she offers something different, though it’s not until you step aboard that you can appreciate just how radical she really is,” says Ugo Pellegrino, president of Arcadia Yachts.

Earlier this year, Arcadia unveiled three new models, a 100, a 145 and a flagship 180.
