The biggest problem with superyachts is their super size. They afford every comfort and convenience known to man and Waldorf Astoria concierges, but are too large for a typical backyard dock and require the seagoing experience of Captain Ahab to operate. The ideal scenario, hitherto thought unattainable, is a compact superyacht. The solution is the Sherpa XL, which at a LOA of 24 meters, is rather petite. The exterior lines are pure breathtaking superyacht, flowing like a brisk mountain stream from the bow all the way aft to the expansive swim platform, with a tender garage set amidships. Guests can enjoy the sun while keeping the captain company, or can retreat below to the alfresco dining area adjacent to the salon and restaurant-quality galley. An owner’s suite, a VIP suite and two guest staterooms provide luxurious accommodations while crew quarters set forward in the bow ensure you don’t have to do the dishes. Powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 1350s, the SherpaXL has a range of 1,400 nautical miles at 10 knots and a top speed of 23 knots; ArcadiaYachts.it.
