“Eco-friendly” Arcadia Yachts Expands In China
Published: Wednesday, 01 April 2015
Arcadia Yachts announces Eletek Technology as the exclusive dealer for Greater China. Eletek forecasts 15 units to sell in China within the next five years and will present Arcadia’s yachts at boat shows held in the country.
The first show for Arcadia and its model 85 will be at the 2015 Hong Kong Gold Coast Boat Show held at the Gold Coast Yacht and Country Club May 1-3.
Eletek Technology Limited was established in 1997. The company focuses primarily on business related to the marine industry and has rapidly established itself as a leading marine electronic service provider in Hong Kong and China.
“We are confident that our yachts can have a serious success with potential Chinese yacht owners for several reasons,” says Ugo Pellegrino, President of Arcadia Yachts. “First of all, new and current Arcadia models are so different from all the other yachts and comply in full with the Chinese yacht buyers' expectations for excellent sea-keeping. Our yachts count on generous, roomy and shielded spaces - around 220sqm - as Arcadia offers by its aft-deck. Arcadia's maximum beams are the largest available on market. The lifestyle onboard Arcadia, thanks to its peculiar continuity of spaces on the main deck and the volume of its convivial areas, is perfect for socialising during their frequent social events, and last but not least the Italian style that a large number of Chinese owners prefer.”
M/Y Lady 007 is the first Arcadia delivered in Hong Kong to Eletek. The layout and the functional living concepts of the Arcadia 85 in its Far East Edition are the result of a construction evolution – the linear design of the superstructure and the vertical line of the bow allow a better use of available internal and external space.
The uniqueness of Arcadia’s project is finding a design solution to integrate solar panels. The Arcadia 85 is equipped with 40sqm of photovoltaic panels each composed of hundreds of high performance solar cells.
“New technologies, green approach, modern design, innovative concept for space distribution on board and an unmatchable comfort in navigation make all Arcadia models unique and pertaining to a new yacht generation,” says W. K. Leung, Eletek’s CEO. “You will discover why only coming personally on board.”
