With her giant masts standing tall and proud in a harbour filled almost entirely of motoryachts, the Truly Classic 127 Atalante is already one of the stars of the Monaco show. The show has seen us welcome many visitors onboard the only classic sailing yacht on display and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. There is a real buzz in the air here in Monaco and it is clearly going to be a busy week for the Claasen boat show team.
“It's a genuine pleasure for us to show potential clients around a yacht on which we have worked so hard for the last two years,” says Joachim Kieft, sales director at Claasen Shipyards. “Ongoing progress means that every boat we build is the best we've launched, but many people have said that Atalante breaks new ground in many ways. She is a testimony to the superb craftsmen at work in our yard.”
As the largest Truly Classic launched to date, Atalante also reinforces the success of the semicustom concept developed by Hoek Design. “Owners have an incredible choice of interior layout and design while accessing the benefits of a hull platform which has proven its performance in many superyacht regattas,” adds Joachim. “Atalante also takes the Truly Classic approach towards ease of maintenance to a new level while illustrating how clients can put a truly individual stamp on their yacht.“
Pieter van der Weide, director at Hoek Brokerage, agrees. “As well as being a showcase for Claasen Shipyards and Hoek Design, the Monaco show is an excellent opportunity for us to profile the charter availability of this beautiful boat. With a maximum of six guests, Atalante is a luxurious and spacious option for those who appreciate an exclusive charter experience on a brand-new superyacht. She is available in the Mediterranean during the summer and the Caribbean over the winter, and I'm delighted to report that we've already booked two charters, one in December and another in March. We expect others to follow in the days ahead.”
The Monaco yacht show continues until Saturday evening. If you'd like to make an appointment to visit Atalante or to meet Joachim, Pieter or Andre Hoek during the event, please e-mail us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. You will find Atalante at berth 32 on the T-Central pier.
