The yachting equivalent of Marmite

Edward Kay examines the latest offering from Arcadia Yachts

 

Hidden among a huge choice of white multi-tiered yachts that look like wedding cakes are the new award winning range of Arcadia ecological yachts. The “Marmite” design is certainly eye catching but it certainly won’t be to the taste of everybody.

The ‘half gliding’ hull is designed for economical cruising and the hybrid motors mean at 8 knots they run in absolute silence. The eco friendly theme continues with solar panels on the roof that recharge the batteries and there is also a water and sewage treatment plant so as not to pollute the sea.

Arcadia Yachts have huge fully opening windows and terraces that fold out of the hull to the sea and make them all about outdoor living. The minimalist Francesco Guida interiors are stunningly designed with Italian flair mixing the mediums of wood, carpet, leather, marble and glass effortlessly.

 

The latest yacht to be delivered from the Naples yard is the 115 (35 metre) “M Ocean” which displaces 180 tonnes and her twin MAN V12, 1,224hp engines give her a cruising speed of 16.5 knots and a top speed of 18.5 knots. At 16.9 knots she burns 386 litres per hour however at 10 knots that drops to just 77 litres per hour and gives her a range of 2,160 nautical miles.

 

The range currently comprises of 85 foot at €4.5 million, a 100 foot at €7 million, and a 115 foot at €10 million (excluding VAT). There are also 135-155 foot boats planned.
