Arcadia Sherpa XL construction has began
The yacht where everything is more
When the multiple award-winning Sherpa was launched in 2016, it immediately revolutionised the market. With Sherpa XL, the Italian shipyard evolves the concept of ‘pocket megayacht’ onto a larger scale, further enhancing some of the design elements typical of the range and introducing new ones at the same time. Sherpa XL is a 78-foot yacht that can offer the comfort and space you would expect in larger yachts (85-95 feet and over). Its engineering is now almost complete and the on spec construction of the first unit has already begun – ready for its international debut at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival. The large external areas – a distinguishing feature of the Arcadia fleet – are expanded more than ever.
The aft cockpit is directly connected to the control panel by a short scenic sequence of steps, which gracefully interlock between the narrow topsides and the low volume that supports the sundeck. Forward is a large living area with elegant sofas and even a table that can seat up to ten diners. On the upper deck, the generous sunlounge with bar and pantry facilities extends the open-air philosophy still further. Unlike traditional fly deck arrangements with an exterior helm station, this area is dedicated entirely to guests. The interior design is contemporary and essential. Owners can choose among many options in terms of materials and finishes. Different Owners have different needs, so Sherpa XL was designed with a four or three cabin layout with option of choosing furniture designed by a careful selection of the best Made-in-Italy design brands.
