Arcadia Yacht’s “Sherpa,” a solar-powered boat that bagged the Most Innovative Yacht 50 to 80 feet award at the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival, is winning hearts for its design that easily adapts to suit a variety of environments.

The versatile boat, which derives its name from the hard-working Nepalese people, can accompany a super yacht as a shadow boat; can serve as a party boat with spacious deck or as a fishing boat, writes Design Boom.

Arcadia first introduced solar paneling in its yacht, named Aria S, in 2010, present a concept that combines “green thinking and lifestyle appeal,” notes Boat.
