JFA sailing superyacht Atao sold

3 May 2017 • Written by Malcolm MacLean

The 24.9 metre sailing yacht Atao, listed for sale by Bernard Gallay at Bernard Gallay Yacht Brokerage, has been sold in-house.

Atao was built by France’s JFA yard in aluminim to a design by Inigo Toledo and delivered in 2006 to a perfectionist owner as a cruising centreboard sloop. Everything on Atao has been carefully thought through and only the very best equipment has been put on board.

Atao was asking €1,990,000

An interior by Rhoades Young Design features teak flooring and French cherry wood panelling accommodating six guests in three double cabins, all with full en-suite facilities. There is direct access from the owner´s cabin to the deckhouse and the view from the deckhouse is unparalleled. The crew can also access the deck through the deckhouse hatch. The lifting keel is a key component of the boat which, once deployed, increases the shallow draught from 2.55 to 4.20 metres, and transforms upwind capability.

A favourite place for keen sailors is in the cockpit to enjoy the day’s sailing and there is also a table in the cockpit making it possible to dine al fresco under the stars in the evenings.

Atao has an upper saloon with two leather couches and a table, while a lower saloon has a seating area to port and a dining area to starboard. The lower saloon has natural light flooding in from the skylight above. Under power, a 270hp MAN engine gives her a cruising speed of 9 knots.

Atao was asking €1,990,000.
