Arcadia Yachts has just unveiled a new collaboration with top Italian design brands which will transform the way the yacht builder approaches interior design. The Italian-based shipyard has long been turning heads with their cutting-edge exterior styling and racy hull design, and now their carefully-chosen selection of exterior and interior loose furniture will make it even easier for clients to achieve their desired aesthetic.
Arcadia Yachts Marketing & Communications manager Francesco Ansalone explained, “This next step in the ARCADIA YACHTS Yachting Renaissance is not just about putting a designer sofa or table aboard a yacht. It’s about carefully choosing items for the social and private areas that best compliment the functionality and aesthetics of our yachts. Of course, Owners are free to make their own choice, but we have brought our eight years of production experience to make a refined selection of loose furniture that guarantees sophisticated design and high quality.”
Introducing the concept at last weekend’s Palma International Boat Show, Arcadia chose hull number 14 of their popular 26 metre/85 foot A85 motor yacht to showcase the top Italian suppliers that clients will be able to choose from their new pret-a-porter collection. Highlights include the inviting aft deck which is kitted out with MET sofas by Cassina along with an elegant, hardwearing dining table and chairs by Alias.
Moving inside, the breathtaking winter garden which leads out onto the aft deck is the ideal place to idle on cooler days on the comfortable sofas and Fiorile coffee tables by Poltrona Frau.
The four guest cabins on A85’s lower deck are no less luxurious with options like the unique lacquered headboard in the owner’s suite which has been skillfully crafted to mimic the movement of the waves. The remarkable attention to detail continues in the ensuite bathroom which are finished with majestic Emperador marble and gold-finished faucets from Zucchetti.
Combined with the company’s proven ability to craft world class yachts, this new opportunity to select timeless pieces from true Italian artisans makes it even easier for owners to curate and personalise the onboard aesthetic. Arcadia’s new approach to yacht interior design is sure to prove hugely popular with owners, cementing the shipyard’s reputation for putting their clients at the very heart of their projects.
