In the renovated production area of Arcadia Yachts there are ten hulls currently under construction, for a value of about 40 million euros. Last year, the shipyard acquired 21% of the Marina di Torre Annunziata srl, thus having 47,000 square metres at its disposal.
The organisation of the production lines is also new, allowing up to seven yachts in the hull-fitting phase and four in the lamination phase, all at the same time. Specifically, there are currently under construction two A85s, two A105s, one A115, three Sherpas and two models of the new Sherpa XL, which will make its debut in Autumn. A production that represents about 60% of the maximum capacity of the site.
The extension of the Arcadia Yachts facilities has also made it possible to double the space dedicated to after-sales activities, an important added value in the large yacht market, that allows the owner to rely directly on the shipyard for wintering and maintenance operations.
“In less than 10 years of activity – declared Ugo Pellegrino, Sole Director of Arcadia Yachts – “about 30 Arcadia Yachts vessels have been delivered to their owners. A result that we are proud of and that pushes us to do even better. Over the next few years, our organisation will concentrate on the new Range and on improved distribution capacity on the one hand, and on a new production strategy on the other. In addition to making the production site more efficient in terms of delivery times, the new strategy will also allow us to meet our Owners’ customisation requests better and better.”
The production organization provides that there is always a hull and an on-spec deck (therefore without a prior order) ready for the setting up of each model, as well as a ready to sail model of A85, Sherpa XL and Sherpa. A choice that – while demonstrating the financial solidity of the Neapolitan shipyard – reduces delivery times, allowing it to move ahead with the construction of standard structures and systems of the yacht such as hull, deck, compartments and main facilities, while leaving the owner freedom regarding layout and stylistic customizations.
