The Truly Classic 90ft ARCADIA superyacht is nearing completion at the Dutch Claasen Shipyard and is believed to surpass even her much-admired predecessors. Designed by Hoek Design Naval Architects, ARCADIA is an innovative sailing yacht constructed to the highest standards.
The hull and insulations are now ready and the jobs on carpentry have already started. Technical and electronic installations are carried our by Cornelis Jongkind Yacht Installation, which recently began the preparation work by fitting the piping and cabling.
Arcadia’s interiors are also being worked on and will continue from the forward and aft extremities of the boat towards the middle, beginning with the forward crew cabins. All the woodwork is being put into the interior and installed. The master suite and guests cabins are more than half complete, with all furniture in place. The owner suite will have direct access to the amidships section of the yacht, which boasts the saloon with spectacular panoramic views.
The generators, air conditioning system, watermaker and all the hydraulics have already been installed in the engine room, with just the main engine to follow. All deck hatches are also installed, the cap rail is currently being mounted and the exterior finished with beautifully varnished teak details. The giant 35.60-metre keel-stepped mast and 11.40-metre boom are being made in carbon by Hall Spars in the Netherlands. The sail package will be supplied by Doyle and includes a mainsail, yankee and staysail, all of which will be operable from the cockpit. There is also a brilliant red and white top-down furling A3/asymmetrical. ARCADIA’s hull will feature a pristine white colour with a distinguishing red underbody.
Acadia is scheduled for launch in May 2016. In addition to this new Truly Classic 90, Claasen is currently also busy with a 77 ft Pilot Classic.
