Atalante is an exceptional Steel ketch. However, the current Owner is not a sailor himself, and the yacht is just an asset that he has. So, Atalante DOES NEED INVESTMENTS of both time and money. Actually, we are looking for a person who would both appreciate her heritage, aristocratic looks, and has an understanding what to do and at what costs.
She is in Odessa, Ukraine.
- Hull is believed to be in ok condition (No guarantees from my side, but this statement is according to the 2011 ultrasound survey by Lloyd's approved-company, carried out when the yacht came to Odessa -the Hull thickness inspection is provided upon request.
- Rigging - needs much replacement,
- Engine and other systems are believed to be somehow working (she came from Gibraltar to Odessa with them in 2010, we sailed on this engine when I was in Odessa in December 2016), but they are very old – I cannot guarantee anything. The yacht sails rarely in the Black Sea, each year goes out of Ukraine to international waters as she has a convenient flag, has a crew on her, but quite neglected.
I've visited the yacht in December 2016, ALL the pictures I made are available upon request (not only “advertisement” ones, so you will fully understand her condition).
As for the Hull thickness inspection - a new one can be ordered in Odessa, as there are strong shipbuilding facilities left from the USSR period, but, her haul-out would cost quite a lot, so it might be advisable to do this with divers at about a 100 points, and then evaluate whether you want to continue the survey or not.
Atalante has been filmed for a commercial in 2016.
As for price, we have lowered it for many times, from more than 500K Euro to current 210K Euro, bearing in mind that except for the hull, almost all the systems shall be somehow renovated during some period of time. So, the Buyer shall surely invest some money to make a great boat out of her – she needs to be sold in good hands of a person who will appreciate her.
If any questions, feel free to ask, but, I suggest coming to do the viewing, or, a survey can be ordered.. As I said, she is an exceptional yacht, it’s hard to describe her and almost impossible to understand over the Internet, whether she fits you…
Apart from this yacht, if you are looking for a steel sailing yacht, I have other offers that could get you interested, please, enquire.
