Arcadia Yachts wins the World Yachts Trophy with the new A96

At the Cannes Yachting Festival, Arcadia Yachts presented one of the yachting industry’s most intriguing new products, the A96. Proposing a new concept of wellbeing, the boat was one of the most visited during the six-day boat show.

Crowning this success was the award of the “Innovation Trophy” for yachts from 80 to 98 feet at the famous World Yachts Trophies and, in parallel with the boat’s official presentation, the sale of two units.

“The concept and the stylistic and technological solutions developed by the Shipyard to identify and offer sensations of wellbeing down to the last detail” were the reasons that convinced the jury at the World Yachts Trophies – the celebrated international awards event held each year at the end of the Cannes Yachting Festival – to choose the new A96 from Arcadia Yachts.

The strengths of this original yacht, the forerunner of an innovative series, include Arcadia Yachts’ incredible craftsmanship and construction expertise, and with the sliding glazed surfaces on the Main and Upper Decks, the boat offers magnificent views, amazing natural light and the pleasure of the sea breeze. Other plus points scored by the model are the water’s edge stern platform and the swing down gunwales on both sides.

“This award is a source of pride for me and my family, but most importantly for all the skilled workers and professionals from our local area who are part of this adventure which we set out on fifteen years ago,” said Ugo Pellegrino. “For me, this World Yachts Trophy is a recognition of Neapolitan creativity, determination and skill.”

The success of the new A96 was confirmed by the sheer number of visitors to the yacht during the six-day show and the commercial results obtained from these visits, with contracts of sale signed for not one but two units at the French event.

Both units sold will cruise in the Mediterranean.
