Classic Motorsailing Yacht Atlantide For Sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The venerable 37.28 metre motorsailer Atlantide has been listed for sale by Hank Halsted at Northrop & Johnson.
Atlantide was built in steel and aluminium by British yard Philip & Sons in Dartmouth, UK, to a design by Alfred Mylne and delivered in 1930. Following many changes in ownership and use, in 1998 she was bought by the legendary yachtsman Tom Perkins who resolved to return her to a gentleman’s yacht condition. Thus in 1999 she went through a complete rebuild at the Camper & Nicholsons yard in Gosport, UK with an exterior and interior design by Ken Freivokh. She has also had additional refits from 2013-2015, maintaining and improving all systems to the highest standards
She offers sumptuous accommodation for six guests in three cabins including an elegantly detailed master suite, VIP suite and a double, along with main and dining saloons, wheelhouse, and entertainment decks.
Atlantide is a visual feast, beginning with the inlaid marquetry of contrasting woods; quilted smoked maple, ebony, maple, and padauk, overlaid by abalone and mother of pearl roundels with trim and countertops of honey marble and other elegant contrasts that appear throughout the yacht. Under power, her top speed is 12 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 3,250 nautical miles at 10.5 knots with power coming from two 230hp Gardner 8L3B diesel engines.
Atlantide is asking $5,495,000.
