Arcadia Yachts has unveiled its smallest model to date as part of its Renaissance series. Scheduled for delivery in 2018, Sherpa Panta Rei III boasts a unique paint colour, which took more than two months to perfect.
Working from a paint sample provided by the owner, Arcadia and its nautical supplier worked meticulously to produce a marine paint reminiscent of the iconic Rolls Royce shade, Silver Sand, putting the owner’s requests at the heart of the project. This involved working to reproduce a paint that guaranteed the chemical stability required to stand the test of time in the marine environment.
According to Arcadia, the classic lines of the yacht’s hull are inspired by the working vessel aesthetic. Her superstructure is supported by side frames that run parallel to two mirrored staircases on either side, giving access to the ‘Easy-to-Close’ skylounge above. The yacht builder describes this as creating “an interplay of lines that never obscure or interrupt the sense of contact with the sea”.
This superstructure fulfils another function in shading an area of the main deck, providing shelter to guests as they relax on the yacht’s C-shaped sofa. Two further sofas can convert into extra sunpads amidships.
Main deck aft is a single step that allows guests access to a 50-square-metre terrace at water level. Here unobtrusive low-level bulwark lighting immerses the boat and its passengers in the maritime surroundings.
While focusing on convivial social areas, Sherpa Panta Rei III provides luxurious private spaces inside, including an impressive twin guest cabin with a two-metre high ceiling and a master suite in dark oak, complete with a marble bathroom.
The new Arcadia yacht is powered by Volvo Penta IPS600 engines with low fuel consumption.
