Arcona Yachts announce design collaboration with Niels Jeppesen

Arcona Yachts is delighted to announce a new design collaboration with Niels Jeppesen, a world class designer of performance yachts. Niels was a founder and the principal designer within the well-known Danish shipyard, X-Yachts.

Since 2005, Niels Jeppesen has run a yacht design company in the UK together with specialists in the design, construction, and manufacturing of yachts. “Arcona’s experience as a manufacturer of quality yachts with superb sailing performance is a perfect match with my long-term knowledge and experience in this area” says Niels Jeppesen. Niels will also join the Board of Arcona Najad Yachts AB, Sweden.

Urban Lagnéus, recently appointed Arcona Yachts CEO, himself an experienced Olympic sailor with an enviable racing career with 18 years’ experience in senior management roles at Hallberg Rassy, is very much looking forward to this new collaboration. Urban said, “The combination of our extensive experience and complementary competences within performance cruising will result in a very exciting future for our company, our yachts and, importantly, our existing and prospective customers.”

Håkan Eksandh, the owner of Arcona Najad Yachts AB, is really looking forward to working with such an experienced and renown designer. “Niels’ incredible track record will ensure that we maintain the best design and build standards, both in new projects as well as in the development of our existing Arcona models, ensuring we continue to build and deliver boats that people love to sail. I am incredibly excited for the future of our business” says Håkan.
