Arcona Yachts is delighted to announce the 2019 evolution of the Arcona 465, with exciting updates to her exterior and interior design. The first new version of the A465 will be sailing this summer and will be available to view for the first time in the UK at Southampton International Boat Show.
A key distinguishing feature of the evolution is the new exterior windows. The coachroof windows will be one uninterrupted tinted glass recessed window in keeping with the lines of the coachroof. This new design allows more daylight into the saloon and creates an even more appealing space below deck. The hull portlights will be slightly bigger and rectangular instead of the previous eclipse-formed windows. These windows also allow more natural light into the boat and will enhance the contemporary look of the A465.
Other exterior upgrades to match the A465 racing-cruiser pedigree are new details in black and carbon. The instrument consoles will be carbon covered, the portholes in the cockpit are now black framed and the sheet bars alongside the helms will be changed from teak to carbon. The bowsprit will be upgraded to carbon for additional strength with the option of an integrated anchor.
The interior is now available in three different wood finishes: Scandinavian textured light oak varnished to a matt finish, bleached oak or traditional matt varnished mahogany. Oak has proved to be a material that works equally as well as mahogany or teak, and an excellent alternative for sailors that prefer a lighter and contemporary interior. Additional interior upgrades, in keeping with the new exterior features, are bases and navigation panel in matt black. The bookshelf bars are now in carbon instead of stainless steel. The floorboards will be done in matt varnished teak. The headlining in the ceiling joined without mahogany battens for a lighter and modern look. The heads are now styled in white with grey worktops and upgraded brightwork. In the cabins, the reading lamps are upgraded with integrated USB sockets.
The 2019 evolution of the Arcona 465 is contemporary and sleeker to truly reflect her performance qualities and weight. The successful hull and deck shapes remain the same as designed by Stefan Qviberg. The new features have been introduced to ensure that the Arcona 465 remains at the forefront of modern performance cruisers on the market today.
