The 1903 sailing schooner was a long-time World record holder for the crossing of the Atlantic Ocean under sail in 1905 winning the Kaiser’s Cup from New York to The Lizard. The record held firm for almost a century, when it was broken in 1998. It is the longest standing speed record in the Yachting History.

Using copies of drawings of the original schooner, the yacht includes a large full-beam salon, a dining room, an observation room, gun room (for the owner to admire his collection of British hunting rifles) and a palatial lobby.

The Owner, Ed Kastelein is the man responsible for the recreation of this wonderful new schooner and is also behind such projects as the sailing yacht Thendara, sailing yacht Aile Blanche, sailing yacht Borkumriff, sailing yacht Zaca a te Moana and most recently the Herreshoff racing schooner Eleonora E.

The Dutch Van der Graaf yard first launched ATLANTIC in 2008. Following her launch, she underwent an extensive programme of fitting out. 2009 saw the assembly of her three masts, with a height of 45 metres, supporting 1700m² of sails. Her raven black high gloss hull reflects the ripples of the water, and one glance at the three towering masts instantly give the sense of power that this mighty yacht has.
