2017 JFA


With concept by HANSEN MARINE EXPLORATION, ARCANA's design is unique and indeed
perfectly fit for the purpose of marine exploration. JFA has specially designed ARCANA to
safely and efficiently operate light submarines.

ARCANA is an elegant and seaworthy ship, a yacht remarkable for her discrete refinement and
high technology, beautifully blending design ingenuity with solid exploration capabilities.

She is an invitation to embark on a long journey, across distant seas to new horizons, reaching unexplored islands and pristine shores, living the adventure with elegance.

Designed by Horacio Bozzo for Hansen Marine Exploration, the yacht can accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 elegant cabins.

ARCANA includes facilities for a three-seater submarine with a proprietary system that can launch and recover the sub without any need for a traditional crane.

Dynamic Positioning allows ARCANA to stay on location without anchors, so no damage is caused to fragile sea beds such as coral reefs.

Her shallow draft combined with the exceptional manoeuvrability provided by her azimuth propellers, makes her remarkably suited to the safe exploration of near shore areas, rivers and lagoons.
