Broker's Comments

This classic, light displacement, drop keel sailing cruiser was conceived in 1955 by Alan Vines, a senior executive at Fairey, with the expertise of Uffa Fox who was their Design Consultant. The 24ft prototype was named Atalanta. and she is still sailing the East Coast with the sail number A1. When the Atalanta went into full production the length was increased to 26ft to improve onboard accommodation.
The hull was formed by Fairey Marine of hot moulded agba veneers using technology originally developed during WWII for building wooden aircraft.
This charming boat is extraordinarily spacious for such an early trailer sailer and has been much improved and updated by her present owner, whilst maintaining her classic features.
To quote an owner of one of these super little craft; "Remember, she's not just a boat, she's a piece of marine history".
