Another Superyacht Visits Dublin as 'Arcadia' Berths at Dun Laoghaire Marina

#arcadia – Dun Laoghaire Marina welcomed another superyacht visitor this week when the 35.80m Arcadia berthed at the 800–berth south Dublin Bay facility. Not only does the impressive 'Arcadia' have gorgeous lines but as the 159th vessel to transit the Northwest Passage, she's also a serious long distance expedition motor yacht too.

This luxury vessel's sophisticated exterior design and engineering are the work of Tony Castro Design, the designer of none other than Royal Cork's own 1720 acclaimed sportsboat design. Arcadia was custom built in 2006 by Royal Huisman.

The visit follows June's biggest ever visitor to Dun Laoghaire when the marina said hello to 46m Superyacht Christopher.

Arcadia yacht has an alustar hull with an alustar superstructure with a beam of 8.24m (27'0"ft) and a 2.99m (9'9"ft) draft.

She offers accommodation for up to eight guests and is also capable of carrying up to seven crew onboard to ensure a 'relaxed luxury yacht' experience.

Reports from the Dun Laoghaire watefront say Arcadia owners and crew are having 'a wonderful time' touring the Dun Laoghaire locality, as well as the city centre, and are especially interested in visiting famers markets to sample the best of locally sourced produce.
