Some years ago, Arcadia presented the 17m Sherpa with her unique design. Now they come up with the Arcadia Sherpa XL with almost 24m, designed by Hot Lab (exterior and interior).

Arcadia is known for unique yacht designs and a focus to reduce the carbon footprint with optimized hulls, lightweight materials and the use of solar panels. The Arcadia Sherpa XL comes with a length of 23.80m, a beam of 6.90m and 220 sqm of interior space.

The semi-displacement yacht has a top speed of 22 knots, powered by two Volvo Penta IPS 1050 engines. Arcadia says the Sherpa XL is 30 – 35 % more efficient than other yachts in her class.

Ugo Pellegrino, the Sole Director of ARCADIA YACHTS says:

“SHERPA XL retains all of ARCADIA’s fundamental brand values – comfort, performance, easy handling, eco-friendly technology and personalization options in terms of layout and décor. This new project means a great deal to me, personally, because I spent a lot of time on SHERPA and fully appreciated its qualities. I would like this new model to be another step towards the creation of a new concept of yacht, which gives the green light to a new line and is not simply a SHERPA on a larger scale. The latter would have been a quicker and easier solution for us, but we fully intend to keep our role as innovators and to continue to push our industry further.”

The master suite has a size of over 22 sqm. Furthermore, there is a VIP suite in the bow. The yacht can be ordered with a three or four cabin layout.

Enrico Lumini, Interior Chief Designer of Hot Lab explains:

With regard to interior design, our intent was to bring this project as close as possible to the requests of potential Owners – large spaces, great interaction with the surrounding environment and a contemporary, simple and essential style. Simple geometries maximise volumes and if, on the one hand, this leads us to forgetting where we are, i.e. on an almost 24-metre yacht, on the other hand it allows to make the best use of the available space, providing guests with greater comfort while living on board.
