On 26th September 2011 the Royal Huisman-built 36m explorer Arcadia completed her east-west transit of the Northwest Passage – only the 159th vessel to do so in the 108 years since records began. Especially remarkable, Arcadia is an award winning, elegant luxury yacht, that was always envisaged by her owner as a globe-trotting gentleman’s yacht with the ability to go anywhere in comfort and style.
Her Tony Castro design certainly alludes to high latitudes and explorer tendencies – a visual heritage that Arcadia has evidently been eager to live up to in real life. 10 years on and still going strong and apparently that happy owner has no intention of selling her. What does that tell you ??
