Photography by ARCADIA YACHTS
This year at the Cannes Yachting Festival, luxury superyacht brand Arcadia Yachts brought a showcase of their newest offerings from Sorrento to the Vieux Port.
The yard’s Yachting Renaissance concept was first introduced in 2010. It’s based on placing the owner at the centre of the project to give them an unfettered experience of the surrounding environment.
The vast open spaces and the extensive aft decks enable passengers to immerse themselves into the marine milieu. The full-height windows, the lateral openings and the innovative glass surfaces that appear and disappear like windows in an automobile, all combine to generate spaces with imperceptible borders between interior and exterior.
The multiple openings render air-conditioning secondary thanks to the sea breezes that can freely circulate throughout the yacht. Solar panels have been integrated into the superstructure, reducing the use of generators while at anchor. The widespread use of state-of-the-art thermally insulated glass surfaces is a testament to the yard’s environmental values.

Arcadia Yachts has seen strong sales in their seven years in operation, and as a result its present fleet will be expanded into three different ranges: Gamma A, Gamma Sherpa and Gamma FOR.TH.
FIVE MODELS FOR GAMMA A
Gamma A, the archetypal Arcadia range, consists of five models:

ENTRY INTO THE WORLD OF STEEL
Arcadia is making an entry into the world of steel-hulled vessels with their new FOR.TH (Forward Thinking) range. The yard is collaborating with Hot Lab Studio on the project and open to foreign partnerships to collaborate on the first unit’s engineering and production.
