Atlantis 55 : Exceptionally well-lit

Atlantis-55Construction.

After the 42 and 47, Gobbi shipyard adds a new member to  its elegant, contemporary range with this hard top cruiser with streamlined hull. Stefano Righini’s signature, the hallmark of understated luxury, is unmistakable on board this new flagship in  the Atlantis range.

Deck.

Although the manufacturer has given in to the trend for electric hard tops, this model breaks away from its direct competitors through the use of high-tech materials in the wheelhouse, including tempered glass that tints in different colours depending on the level of ambient light.  Safety has not been forgotten either, with handrails that allow easy and safe access to the two spacious sundecks. The high rails and non-slip steps along the catwalks are also reassuring.

Interior.

For those clients looking for an upmarket yacht, the manufacturer has  equipped the Atlantis 55 with three cabins with en-suite bathrooms, a fully equipped galley withwine cellar, and a salon that comfortably sits eight guests. The master  cabin at the stern fills the entire width of the boat, with a double bed set diagonally to the rest of the cabin. The sunroof and side bay windows make for a bright interior, as does the  choice of a light-coloured, designer décor in matching tones. Passenger wellbeing is top of the list, with an air-conditioned cockpit!

Engines.

The Atlantis 55 is fitted with two 710 hp 6 cylinder in-line CAT diesel engines, giving maximum speeds of up to 37 knots. Given the draught and engine power, the  boat’s performance makes it one of the best cruisers on the market. The ideal cruising  speed is 34 knots at 2750 rpm. The design of the Atlantis 55 gives it appreciable sea-keeping abilities and the hull cuts through the waves without any unpleasant list. The flaps are only needed in strong crosswinds. An electrically adjustable seat and a footrest are provided for maximum comfort at the wheel, but there is a slight blind spot that could make manoeuvring difficult on the starboard side. Elegant, sporty and  modern…this could be the chronicle of a success foretold.
