Arcadia Yachts is well-known for designs offside on the norm and environmentally friendly yachts up to 115 feet and a design portfolio up to 180 feet. So, Sherpa as the smallest one in the fleet represents the entry model but with exterior and interior spaces of bigger yachts.

At a first glance, the hull looks a bit awkward, but the Arcadia Sherpa has a top speed of 25 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots. At cruising speed, the Volvo Penta IPS 600 engines consume approximately 97 liters per hour. Her economical speed of 12 knots consumes just 43 liters per hour.

In addition to a generator, Arcadia integrates solar panels into the superstructure. This system produces a power of 3,5 (according to the graphic) / 4 KW  (according to the press release) to charge the batteries, run the entertainment systems and the hotel functions.
