The 35.60 m keel-stepped mast and 11.40 m boom were made in carbon fibre by Hall Spars. The carbon fibre sail package supplied by Doyle includes a mainsail, yankee and staysail, plus a red & white top-down furling Asymmetrical A3 and a 580 m² A2. The rig is lighter than on Kealoha and Atalante, offering Acadia significantly enhanced sailing capacity. The visual impact of the rig is complemented by having the anodising on the mast in a silver colour, matching the winches and deck hardware. Even the furlers have been silver anodised and the carbon furler foils on the headstays painted in metallic silver. The effect of these silver accents against the titanium grey sails is stunning.
The twin cockpit arrangement comes into its own on Acadia. The centre cockpit is a fine place for socialising: the option to fully enclose the space with a bimini ensures a nice area to sit if it rains. A folding cockpit table with built-in fridge means guests can sail with the leaves down and get around the cockpit comfortably. Removable fiddles and custom holders ensure drinks don’t get spilled. Anchor up for lunch, take the fiddles away, put up the table leaves and you have a superb dining area for eight people. As the owner likes to be involved in sailing and helming, the wheel is placed in the aft cockpit. The stainless steel work on the steering position and monitoring post is exquisite in this cockpit, which contains a smaller version of the folding table and comfortable seating.
The interior ambience is one of timeless elegance with raised and fielded mahogany panels and white-painted panels above the wainscot level. One of the key unifying aspects between the deckhouses and the rest of the interior is the use of Swietenia mahogany. Twelve cubic metres of wood were sourced to provide the seven cubic metres needed of just the right colour and grain, all of which has been used to great effect.
