Arcadia Yachts released information about its new entry-level model, Sherpa, which will be unveiled during the Sept. 8-13 Cannes Yachting Festival in France.

The Italian builder will unveil details at the show and debut the model during the 2016 Boot Dusseldorf in January.

Production of the Sherpa is part of the recent extension of Arcadia Yachts’ GRP range. Together with the Arcadia 100 (which is under construction), the yard’s GRP family line also includes the Arcadia 85 and Arcadia 115.

All models are built using dedicated molds, one for each model. The yard will reveal details about production plans for full-displacement steel/aluminum yachts from 135 feet to 150 feet.
