The yard owned and managed by Ugo Pellegrino returns to the Venice Boat Show – from May 31st to June 4th – in collaboration with dealer Blu Yachts, Brand Representative for the Adriatic, with one of its most successful models, Sherpa 80.
Ideal for cruising in the utmost privacy and comfort, this 24-metre yacht is characterised by its generous windows, large solar panels and seamless continuity between indoor and outdoor spaces, all strong points in the brand’s design philosophy.
The Venice Boat Show comes, for Arcadia, after months of important sales and deliveries, with two boats destined for the Turkish market soon to be delivered.
Given its success here in 2022, Arcadia Yachts has decided to return and take part in this year’s event too, the fourth Venice Boat Show held at the city’s Arsenale venue from May 31st to June 4th. Staged in a 55,000 m² dock with over 1,100 linear metres of landing stages, the show has proved very effective because its visitors differ from and are in a certain sense complementary to those who flock to the autumn events. “It’s partly down to our participation in the main boat shows in our sector that the yard is doing such good business at the moment, with the entire range currently in production, the recent sale of an A105, five launches planned for the coming weeks, and the launch of the first unit of the new A96s that will open a new era for the brand,” commented Arcadia Yachts’ CEO and founder Ugo Pellegrino.
The Yard is attending the show in partnership with Blu Yachts, Brand Representative for the Adriatic, and showcasing its Sherpa 80. With a length of 24 meters and a beam of around 7 meters, this yacht offers a total of 220 square meters of liveable indoor and outdoor spaces. The unmediated relationship with the sea and surrounding environment – one of the hallmarks of the Yard’s design philosophy from the outset – is particularly intense in the cockpit, which is directly connected to the stern platform by an elegant series of steps set into the thin bulkheads on either side of the low-set sun pad. The cockpit covering almost 65 m² is uncluttered and available throughout day thanks to the decision to position the lateral garage (for a tender up to 4 m long) forward of the engine room.
A strong interplay with the surrounding environment is a feature of the interior design too, characterised by sophisticated furnishings in an essential, uncomplicated style in which simple geometries amplify the volumes, making the most of available space and offering every possible comfort for life at sea. The use of avant-garde materials has also made it possible to significantly reduce the overall weight.
In the best tradition of the Yard, the hull and propulsion system were designed in parallel to optimise performance in terms of both consumption and comfort. Sherpa 80 has a top speed of over 23 knots and a range of 1,400 nautical miles at 10 knots. To minimise the environmental impact of the boat, like all the brand’s models, it is fitted with solar panels that provide around 2-3 kW of clean energy (enough to power the yacht’s main hospitality services), as well as with low-power devices and LED lighting.
