The strikingly large and slender three mast schooner Atlantic has been offered for sale. Atlantic was designed by William Gardner and built by Townsend & Downey, Shooter Island, New York. This replica was delivered in 2010, to the drawings of the original schooner collected from various archives in the USA, amongst which the MIT Museum in Massachusetts, which Doug Peterson, acting as consulting naval architect, has digitized guaranteeing the authenticity of the lines and floatation.

Her uncluttered decks are set up for racing, and her interior features meticulous craftmanship with superb detailing.
