The superyacht schooner Atlantic now delivered

The superyacht schooner Atlantic now delivered

Her delivery has been awaited for months now, and now it's a reality, as the three-masted schooner Atlantic sailing yacht has been in La Rochelle for over a week now.

Atlantic is a replica of the famous schooner built for Wilson Marshal, and helmed by Charly Barr. The original superyacht was launched in 1903 and her record of the Atlantic crossing in 1905 (The Kaiser's Cup) remained in place for many years. The new Atlantic is based on the original design of William Gardner. With a length of 56.43m, she was launched in March 2008 at Van der Graaf yard. Then a long programme of fitting out commenced, and her three masts were assembled in late 2009. With a height of 50m, they support 1700m² of sails. Note also, Harken specially built 36 winches in bronze for Atlantic.

Our correspondent in La Rochelle reported her arrival ten days ago, as she stood in the harbour to complete finishing touches. She left yesterday morning on the way to Med to start her charter season.
