Arcadia Yachts has launched the latest Sherpa 80 XL unit featuring a new layout.
As well as boasting five cabins, the aft deck has been customised to the owner’s wishes with the new Jardin D’hiver option, which enables the stern deck area to be closed off without sacrificing any characteristics of the brand’s famous pocket mega yacht.
On 11 July 2022, the new unit of the Sherpa 80 XL model was launched in the presence of its owner, a new customer of the Yard, at Arcadia Yachts’ headquarters on the Sorrento Coast.
In true Arcadia style, the 24-metre yacht offers a total surface area of 220 square metres (interior and exterior) to enjoy unencumbered with water toys and tender, which are stowed in the side garage.
In meeting the client’s specific needs, this new Sherpa 80 XL differs from previous units in that its layout has five instead of three or four cabins in the traditional versions.
The new interior layout called for a different configuration, so the galley in this unit opens onto the sky lounge, creating an area where conviviality, hospitality and cuisine come together in perfect Italian style.
An interior-exterior interface that heightens the relationship with the sea and surrounding environment has always been a distinguishing feature of Arcadia’s philosophy.
For this unit, it’s been carried a step further on the aft deck, where the owner can enjoy the new Jardin D’hiver layout option. Here, the aft deck dining zone can be closed and heated for enhanced comfort in winter or bad weather.
The propulsion system is based on Volvo Penta IPS technology and delivers a range of over 1,200 nautical miles at ten knots, with a top speed of around 23 knots, powered by two IPS 1350 engines.
To minimise environmental impact by using renewable energy sources, the Sherpa 80 XL has solar panels that provide around 3 kW of clean energy (enough to power the yacht’s main hospitality services) and is fitted with low-power devices and LED lighting.
Arcadia Yachts was founded in 2008 by Ugo Pellegrino and is based in a modern 47,000-square-metre facility where the company builds yachts with green credentials and an unmistakable style synonymous with innovation, excellence and Italian design.
The current fleet consists of the A85, A105, A115, Sherpa 60 and Sherpa 80 XL.
