From the superstructure on down, the Arcadia A105 is a decadent 100-foot mobile island that fulfills the whims of her owners and guests. Starting at the top, the helm station with glass overhead and sliding glass sides can be completely open to allow the day — or night — in. The adjacent Sky Lounge provides an unsurpassed view of the passing scenery while those seeking a tan will gravitate to the full-beam Sun Lounge where translucent fabric panels can be deployed to provide UV protection. The main level houses dining for up to 20, served by a gourmet-quality galley. Full-height windows combined with fold-out bulwarks to transform meals into an open-air dining experience. Overhead, 51 meters of solar panels produced up to 4 kW to supplement the onboard diesel gensets. One level down, a full-beam stateroom, VIP cabin and twin stateroom provide 5-star overnight accommodations. Aft are accommodations for up to 6 crew members as well as a laundry area to keep everyone freshy attired. With a fuel capacity of 4,100 gallons, the A105 is ready to cruise virtually anywhere on the planet in complete luxury;
