At the beginning of January, the 90-year-old yacht Atlantide docked in Vollenhove, Netherlands. The classic motosailer, designed and built in the last century, requires special restoration. The yacht owners commissioned this technologically challenging project to shipbuilders Royal Huisman and its refit division Huisfit.
Atlantide arrived in the Netherlands earlier this year from Newport (USA). Yacht owners Jim and Kristy Clark turned to the Royal Huisman and Huisfit team for a reason. Last year, the shipyard refitted their J-class yacht Hanuman, and also built several more boats for the family: the Hyperion and Athena.
The Clarks’ latest acquisition, the 37-meter Atlantide, was designed by naval architect Alfred Mylne. She was launched in 1930 at the Philip & Sons shipyard in England. Atlantide has a rich history for its 90 years, but it will take true craftsmanship to save it for the next generations. The Huisfit division that took on this project has already a solid track record of successfully restorated classic yachts. Indeed, such projects can often even exceed the scale and scope of construction from scratch. For example, in 2020 for the restoration of the 1913 Vagrant schooner, the shipyard received the prestigious “Best Rebuild Yacht” award.
“If a discerning client commissions a fourth very substantial project to the same shipyard, you just know that the work you perform is truly appreciated” – said Jan Timmerman, CEO of Royal Huisman. “So we are most honoured to find ourselves in the position to realise yet another dream for our esteemed clients.” Royal Huisman promises that the rebuilded Atlantide will leave the shipyard in the spring of 2022.
