New Atlantic A500 Model
Revolutionary Slide Hull
After years of international successes a new Atlantic will be launched! The new Atlantic A500 series. In collaboration with Vripack International, Atlantic has developed a completely new series with a sliding hull. This allows the yachts from a displacement speed smootly go over to the maximum speed. This hull model saves about 20% fuel consumption and is comfortable at all speeds. In addition, Atlantic will be built entirely out of aluminium.The length of the A500 is 16,50 metres but due to the detachable (and optionally sinkable) swim platform the Atlantic is no longer than 14,99 metres.
This allows you to sail on all waterways without a navigation licence and without dispensation of Rhine patent. This also means that this Atlantic has maximum volume when compared to 15 metre yachts. The part of the ship below the waterline combined with the weight segmentation guarantee a revolutionary improvement of the sailing characteristics. The stern of the yacht contains a huge panorama window with two storage rooms on either side. Furthermore, the entire anchor winch construction has been completed below deck. There is a very useful collapsible table on the rear deck and the railing has been raised for safety measures. The convertible hood that can be operated electronically and radar arc make the ship suitable for all weather types. Absolute top segment.
