Boat and broker news for June

Jun 15, 2015 by Lucy Chabot Reed

Italian shipyard Arcadia Yachts has sold the fourth Arcadia 115 hull in as many years, this one in the Middle East.

With a shape adapted from designs originated by Britain’s National Physical Laboratory, the efficient hull is coupled with 60 square meters of 5-kilowatt photovoltaic panels, which eliminated the need of a generator to run the refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans, and pumps.

 

YATCO opened its first European office in Bologna, Italy, managed by Gherardo Gardo, European business development director, and supported by Orlando Florio, European sales and marketing manager.

 

Sunreef Yachts has launched M/Y Blue Belly, the first catamaran from the next generation of the 70 Sunreef Power line, which forgoes the interior navigation station in the salon to increase lounge and dining areas. The predecessor, 70 Sunreef Power 1 Life, launched in 2014, and the first 70 Sunreef Power was launched in 2008.
