Italian builder Arcadia Yachts is delivering hull No. 1 of the Arcadia 85S to its American owner this month.

The nearly 85-foot yacht, which has a sky lounge, is designed to be a family yacht and incorporates solar panels, soundproofing and a semiplaning hull.

Arcadia said the panels, each composed of hundreds of high-performance solar cells, supply as much as 3.5 kilowatts — enough to guarantee self-sufficiency in energy for many pieces of equipment and electrical systems, such as refrigerators, water circulation, toilettes, lights, A/V and electronics while recharging batteries.

The builder said the power needed on board while at anchor, excluding the air-conditioning system, is supplied by the solar panel system and converter, rather than generators.

The 85S features a new sky-lounge concept, convertible into a sheltered third deck, completely closed and protected by windows that can be opened and raised to meet the hardtop, as is the case on cars.

The 85S is powered by twin R6-730-hp MAN diesels (with the option of twin MAN 1,000-hp engines), giving the yacht a maximum speed of 18 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots.
