Arcadia Yachts‘ new 26-metre vessel – A85S will be one of the stars of the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival where it will be flanked by the rest of the Arcadia Yachts’ fleet. This new boat delivers an incredibly generous amount of guest space for its 25.9-metre length. There are four cabins on the lower deck, including a spectacular 32 square metre master suite amidships with an en suite bathroom complete with a spacious wellness area. The roomy VIP stateroom forward has a double bed and also a walk-in closet. The remaining two guest cabins are twins. Additionally, there are quarters for four crew in the forward section of the A85S.
The layout and functional aspects of the living space aboard the A85S are the result of a deliberate evolution of the yard’s construction processes. The linear design of the superstructure and vertical line of the bow guarantee optimal use is made of every single inch of available space, both interior and exterior. The perfect case in point is the exceptionally generous living area which is significantly larger than that found on other yachts of the same dimension and, in fact, results in around 100 square metres of communal space on the main deck alone.
The uniqueness of the Arcadia Yachts philosophy in general and the A85S in particular springs from a desire to place people at the centre of each new project. This changes the whole meaning and experience of seafaring and allowing all aboard to enjoy exceptionally close contact with the surrounding environment.
At 25.9 metres (84’11”) in length, the A85S has a maximum displacement of 75 tonnes. It also sports twin 730 hp MAN diesel engines which guarantee a maximum speed of 18 knots. The new yacht cruises confidently at 16 knots too. Equally, it can cruise in displacement mode at the slightly lower speed of 12 knots to allow those aboard to enjoy the most pleasurable part of any cruise. The A85S has a range of approximately 850 nm 12 knots.
