ARCADIA: ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE YACHTS
Solar panels, low emissions and consumption, a focus on materials and environmental impact, because even luxury can be environmentally sustainable.
The philosophy of the Neapolitan company Arcadia Yachts is that the shipyards in the industrial area between Torre Annunziata and Castellammare di Stabia, is seeing growth rates increasing steadily despite the negative outlook.
Arcadia’s production goal is to achieve complete harmony with nature and the sea, a “green” approach that combines luxury with a sense of ethics.
“Ecological thinking” which has resulted in eco-friendly solutions that are able to reduce energy consumption and environmental impact.
By introducing the “green” philosophy into the world of luxury yachts, Arcadia has become a successful company, especially abroad: China, the UAE, USA. A 2013 turnover that, after five years of operation, reached 15 million; in 2014 it will grow to 20 and aims to reach 70 million for 2018.
The fleet produced by Arcadia Yachts offers a fibreglass range that goes from 85 to 115 feet, with new large projects exceeding 155 feet.
The most advanced technological research and the best Italian creativity have created innovative and effective solutions, which establish a new sustainable advancement for boating in all aspects. First are the solar panels incorporated into the superstructure, designed to recharge the batteries and power all of the onboard utilities and services, thereby reducing the use of generators.
Moreover, the innovative hydrodynamic efficiency of the semi-gliding hull requires limited engine power, ensuring low consumption, fuel and maintenance costs.
Its pollution reduction and environmental awareness can also be seen through the wastewater treatment plants and optional hybrid propulsion, making it possible to sail at up to 8 knots with zero emissions and in total silence.
The “green” philosophy also involves the production process, with an assembly system designed to minimise waste materials, paint usage and construction times.
Arcadia Yachts’ eco-friendly approach goes hand-in-hand with its style development. This includes its unique view from the living room thanks to the large windows, total soundproofing for a comfortable ride, total privacy ensured by the quick slide “filtravedo” panels, and a perfect sense of continuity between the interior and exterior spaces expressed through the wide surface windows and large cockpit, making it a real patio onto the sea. Last but not least, the furniture is designed by top Italian designer brands.
