Classic yacht Atlantide begins complete restoration at Royal Huisman

The classic 1930s motorsailer Atlantide has arrived at Royal Huisman to begin a complete restoration.

The 37-metre (121-foot) yacht was shipped from Newport, Rhode Island, and arrived at the yard’s Vollenhove facility in the first week of January.

Originally designed by naval architect Alfred Mylne, Atlantide was built by British yard Philip & Sons in 1930 and has a rich history spanning more than 90 years.

It comes after the yacht was sold to keen yachtsman Jim Clark and his wife Kristy in October 2020.

Royal Huisman already has a well-established relationship with the Clarks having previously built three sailing yachts for the couple, including the J-Class sailing yacht Hanuman in 2009, Athena in 2004 and Hyperion in 1998. Hanuman was refitted at the yard just last year.

Speaking about the project, Royal Huisman chief executive Jam Timmerman said the rebuild is “so grand in scale” that the yard “will be allocating it the same status as a new project.”

He added, “If a discerning client commissions a fourth very substantial project to the same shipyard, you just know that the work you perform is truly appreciated. So we are most honoured to find ourselves in the position to realise yet another dream for our esteemed clients Jim and Kristy Clark.”

The rebuild of Atlantide is due for completion in early 2022.
