Antigua Charter Show preview: The 53 metre supersailor Atmosphere
Delivered in May 2000, Atmosphere is available for charter. This superb 53m three-deck Perini Navi motor sailor is a masterpiece, a vessel combining all the advantages of both sail and power - with accommodation comparable to that found on a motor yacht of her size as well as the grace and pleasure of being propelled by the wind.
Her enormous ketch rig delivers around 15 knots in ideal sailing conditions, a performance also provided by her twin 1,257 hp Deutz diesels. On deck are two delightful open-air guest areas, both in the shelter of the cockpit and above the saloons on the sun deck. There is also a third area on the foredeck where an awning can be rigged to provide shade. The tenders are stored below the foredeck, ensuring clutter-free deck space, whilst the yacht's impressive water toys are kept out of sight in the lazarette's sports room.
This beautiful 53 metre sailing yacht sleeps eight guests and has an elegant French Empire styled lounge with stunning works of art. The sedate and elegant interior is exquisitely crafted using mellow cherrywood panelling and warm tones.
Atmosphere is available for charter through Edmiston. Her rates are USD 230,000 /240,000 in the Caribbean - EUR 195,000/205,000 in the Mediterranean.
Atmosphere will be attending the Antigua Charter Show next month.
