Built by the Royal Huisman Shipyard, the exterior for Arcadia was a collaboration between Rhoades Young Design and Naval Architect Tony Castro. Arcadia has been specifically configured for extensive long range cruising.

The interior has a classic style with swietenia mahogany chosen for the furniture. Colonial references combine with Edwardian furniture details to create a design scheme more common with sailing yachts. The result has the warmth and elegance, together with sightlines that create an interior ambience befitting a much larger yacht.

Awards include the coveted Boat International Award for Best Displacement Motor Yacht 30-49.9m in 2007.
