Hull turned on Atlante Yachts' first 35m explorer yacht

19 March 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Construction is officially underway on Atlante Yachts' 34.5-metre explorer series, the Atlante Classic 35. The first unit has had its hull turned at Mengi Yay's shipyard in Tuzla, Turkey.

Commissioned by an "experienced Northern European client", the yacht is scheduled for delivery in spring 2025.

The engines are IMO Tier III certified to meet the latest emission regulations

The Atlante Classic 35 is a modern interpretation of the full displacement explorer yacht, with Atlante Yachts committed to an all-Italian design. Exterior and interior design is therefore owed to VYD Studio, while naval architecture will be completed by Arrabito Naval Architects

Accommodation is across five en suite cabins. Interior renderings reveal a fresh, contemporary style with floor-to-ceiling windows, light-wood wall panelling and a gentle colour palette of blues and greys. The design was developed with extensive input from the owners, including the choice of high-quality Italian materials and fabrics. 

Leisure highlights include a beach club with an unfolding transom and ample entertainment areas across its three decks. The hardtop sundeck is the main communal area, fitted with fixed sunpads, an al fresco dining area with U-shaped sofa seating and a dry bar.

"With the layout of the Atlante Classic 35 we have aimed to achieve a perfect equilibrium within the parameters of length, beam and within a very high volume of 330GT usually only available in vessels several metres longer," said Paolo Dose of VYD Studio. "This allows a harmonious balance between accommodation, living, exterior and technical areas."

Powered by twin Volvo Penta engines, the Atlante Classic 35 will have a cruising speed of 11 knots and a range in excess of 5,000 nautical miles.

According to BOATPro, Mengi Yay has seven other hulls currently under construction. This includes the first two hulls in its "go anywhere" explorer series Virtus XP, both scheduled for delivery in 2025.
