She is hull #1 of the 31m motoryacht built by Arcadia Yachts.

Aria.S, the first unit of the 31m motoryacht Arcadia 100, has made her world debut at Cannes Yachting Festival 2016.

Built by Italy’s Arcadia Yachts, she is built in GRP with aluminium verandas on the main deck.

This model features a semi displacement hull, NPL type. The boat has a waterline length of 29.29m and a beam of 7.75m, which is very unusual for a yacht of a similar size.

In addition, Arcadia 100 has been designed to be slightly under 200gt. The shipyard says this positively influences the living space on board, assuring volumes and amenities typical on much larger yachts.

“This is one of the key features appreciated by her repeat buyer, formerly owner of Arcadia 85 for four years,” the company explains in a statement.

Hull #1 is provided with a five cabins layout, the owner’s suite is afore on main deck and opens directly on the bow toward a private sun deck convertible into a dinette.

Performance

The yacht is equipped with two engines V8-1000hp MAN each. She can reach a maximum speed of about 18kt and cruising speed of 16kt.

In addition, the shipyard says that at 14kt the fuel consumption is only 150l/hr and at 10kt fuel drops down to 50l/hr, far less than boats half her size.

Solar panels

Solar cells of latest generation are integrated between external and internal surface of double-glazing panels fitted on top of the largest part of the superstructure.

The 50sq m of solar panels installed onboard the Arcadia 100 supplies up to 5kw of power, enough to guarantee self sufficiency energy for many equipment and electrical systems such as refrigerators, water circulation, toilettes, lights, A/V, electronics, while recharging batteries.

Each double-glazing panel contains a special gas named Krypton, which guarantees a high thermo-isolating coefficient, up to 18° of thermal cooling between interior and exterior temperatures, the equivalent of a 20 cm brick wall.
