Hull No. 1 of the Arcadia Yachts 85S will make its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival this September.

The sky-lounge model (hence the “S” in 85S) was sold to an American owner who took delivery in May. According to Arcadia Yachts, the 85S has improved soundproofing thanks to a balsa-core sandwich structure replacing PVC in the forward section of the hull.

The skylounge can be closed for air-conditioning or protection in weather, or opened by lowering the windows from the hardtop edge (as with a convertible car).
