NEW FOR 2022
We are delighted to announce that the first Arcona model designed by Jeppesen & Pons will be revealed in two weeks time.
X-Yachts Founder & Principal Designer, Niels Jeppesen, and Naval Architect and Yacht Designer, Ariadna Pons-Forn have worked together at X-Yachts Design Ltd for years and bring a wealth of experience to Arcona Yachts.
With a brief from Arcona Yachts’ CEO, Urban Lagnéus, to design a yacht that delivers superb sailing performance and pure cruising comfort in true Arcona style, this new yacht is set to turn heads whether you’re out cruising the Stockholm Archipelago, racing round Tjörn or sailing in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers.
Introduced earlier this month, every Friday throughout February we will reveal more of the new Arcona pictured above and share a few more details about her, up until her launch on Friday 4th March.
Read on to find out a little more about Arcona’s new addition.
COMFORT ABOVE DECK
Two large L-shaped cockpit benches provide a comfortable seating space for 3 – 4 people on each side.
The seats conceal 4 self-draining bench lockers, large enough for a liferaft on the starboard side and ropes/moorings to port. Next to the winches, there are dedicated lockers for halyards and sheets enabling the cockpit to be ‘clean’. Careful consideration has been paid to the backrest height of the seats to maximise the safety and comfort for those on board.
The new model features a central aft cockpit floor hatch/lazarette which provides easy access to a dinghy garage. The deck aft lockers to port and to starboard hide the yacht’s gas bottles and shorepower socket.
A total of three deck opening hatches secure maximum interior ventilation for each aft cabin.
In front of the sliding hatch above the companionway are 3 hinged roof panels above a 3 stainless steel framed sprayhood, resting in its self-draining recess.
