Heesen Yachts - Laurentia
The new Arcadia Yachts 105 will be making its world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2018. The first project presented one year ago was so successful to the extent the shipyard is already building the third hull. The project design was carried out with Milan based Hot Lab, the A105 like the rest of the Arcadia fleet pivots around the yard’s philosophic principles which in a nutshell are simply: resilience, the privileging of contact with the surroundings, conviviality and relaxation “en pleine air”. Every A105 is in fact realized in more ways than one by listening to owners’ requests and of the use he wishes to make of the superyacht. Consequently the yacht is built accordingly. This hull features distinctive traits and chiselled shipyard’s lines that have been interpreted to further enhance the spaces dedicated to conviviality and to ‘al fresco’ spots along the main deck. Contact with the surroundings
be they urban or marine have been privileged by large window like ports which deliver loads of natural light as well as by thick thermal insulating glass sliding doors which can offer great views while keeping the summer heat out while effectively reducing the use of A/C plants. Aft of the main deck there’s plenty of room to seat up to ten people around a table to enjoy a formal dinner while the lounge area can seat a further twelve and the space when needed can double as another dining area thereby raising seating capacity to more than twenty. The same theme has been carried through to the upper deck, where the 30 square metre sky lounge extends as far as the sun lounge which is all of another 35 square metres for a total of about 60 all dedicated to conviviality and relaxation also when ‘ indoors’ and sheltered from unpleasant weather or out in the sunlight. The interior decor is based on two colours taking the lion’s share: black and white, where white underscores passage ways while black is deployed in the areas in which to welcome guests. Every element is expressly designed so as not to hinder panoramic views starting with the stairway, the steps of which simply seem to float in air like a feather to the furniture and tables that are purposely low ones. The owner who is now at his third Arcadia has opted for a two VIP cabin layout and an owner suite with dedicated access.
