Yacht management and design firm Atlante Yachts has announced the sale of a new 34.5-metre explorer yacht, to be built at the Mengi Yay shipyard in Tuzla, Turkey.
This new model belongs to the Atlante Classic 35 range and was commissioned by an experienced Northern European client, with Mark Seaton of Yacht & Villa introducing the buyer. It is scheduled for delivery in Spring 2025.
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 330 GT 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 eight 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.Read More/First 53m Mengi Yay Virtus XP sold
