The first Truly Classic 127 was delivered to a delighted repeat client in 2015. While her unprecedented size makes Atalante larger, faster and even more comfortable than previous Truly Classics, she retains the cosy feel and direct contact with the water of a much more intimate boat.
Atalante has excellent racing properties that will serve her well on the regatta circuit, including a continuous longitudinal framing of high tensile aluminium, a deep-draught keel, a carbon rudder and cable-based direct steering. As the owner enjoys helming the yacht himself, the wheel is in the aft cockpit and the aft deckhouse is dedicated to navigation; when Atalante is at anchor, the whole aft area can be reserved for the owners.
The interior is finished in some lovely raised and fielded panelling of West Indies mahogany, with the ceilings and walls above the wainscot level painted white. While Atalante is easily large enough to contain many more cabins, the owner preferred to have fewer, roomier interior spaces. Those lucky enough to stay onboard will love the way the full-beam salon is flooded with natural light as they enjoy the pleasant bar area.
As various commentators have noted, Atalante‘s exceptional build quality and design place her among the finest boats in this category anywhere in the world.
