Exteriors and interiors are by Milan Hot Lab design studio. The new Sherpa XL is based on the success of the original 16.8-meter Arcadia Sherpa Shadow presented at Boot Düsseldorf in 2016, but with larger areas and volumes, the yacht boasts 220 square meters of indoor and outdoor living space.The Sherpa XL yacht is equipped with solar panels that provide up to 2kW of clean electricity. This is enough to power almost all the yacht load, except for the air conditioning. The yacht will also be equipped with low-consumption appliances and LED lights to further reduce the environmental impact.The cockpit features large windows to offer guests an unobstructed panoramic view, while the tender is held in front of the engine room and launched through a side door. There is also a considerable skylounge on the upper deck served by a bar and pantry facilities. Even here the windows flow continuously to completely connect guests with the outside.The interiors, designed by Hot Lab, can be configured with three or four cabins. In the second configuration, the galley is in the skylounge, while in the first with three cabins, the galley is located in the lower deck.Sherpa XL is powered by two main Volvo Penta IPS 1,050 engines that reach a top speed of around 22 knots and a cruising speed between 10 and 12 knots with a range of 1,500 nautical miles at 10 knots. This makes the yacht totally autonomous, also due to its small size. The semi-displacement hull was designed to be 30 to 35% more efficient than other yachts in its class.
