Nikos Manafis Custom Bike
TheArsenale reveals today a new collaboration, made with Athens-based Industrial designer Nikos Manafis. A rather unique 125cc custom bike, made of fiberglass and Alcantara®, which will be produced in a total number of 10 units and available at 10.000 euros on Think of this as a “Back-to-the-Future” bike, a compact café racer that embodies style and substance covering several generations. “The project is not about offering speed and performance. It is about designing and offering a unique riding experience. This experience consists of the learning riding position on the streamlined body, the futuristic UI of the bike and the neck-breaking effect on anyone that the rider will pass by”, said Nikos Manafis.


Sherpa By Arcadia Yachts
Sherpa is a “forward thinking design yacht” with an overall length of 17,70m and a width/beam of 5,60m, even more marked by the concept of “open space” of the aft cockpit to which Arcadia has accustomed us since its debut. A compact size able to confirm all of the key factors of bigger yachts available in the range of the yard (internal/external areas and volumes, high-performance efficient hull, minimalist and neat interiors). SHERPA can be perfectly compared to much larger boats (65 ft) for her LWL (16,10m) and beam (5,60m).
Sherpa is the natural evolution of Arcadia fleet towards reduced size boats. This amazing small yacht manages to keep integral in only 58 feet the vision and features that make each Arcadia yacht different from the rest of its competitors, having also given to the volumes on board a new concept of distribution, aimed at putting forth areas more used by guests, such as the stern cockpit, the living area, and cabins.
