The classic 1930s motorsailer Atlantis arrived at Royal Huisman to begin a full restoration.
The 37-meter yacht was shipped from Newport and arrived at the Vollenhove shipyard in the first week of January.
Originally designed by naval architect Alfred Mylne, Atlantis was built by the British shipyard Philip & Sons in 1930 and has a rich history spanning over 90 years.
It comes after the yacht was sold to avid sailor Jim Clark and his wife Kristy in October 2020.
Royal Huisman already has a well-established relationship with Jim and Kristy Clark having already built three sailboats for the couple, including the J-Class sailboat. Hanuman in 2009, Athena in 2004 and Hyperion in 1998. Hanuman was rearranged at the yard last year.
Speaking on the project, Royal Huisman Managing Director Jan Timmerman said the reconstruction is “of such magnitude” that the yard “will give it the same status as a new project.”
He added: “If a demanding customer orders a very large fourth project from the same shipyard, you just know that the work you do is truly appreciated. We are therefore very honored to find ourselves in a position to make another dream come true for our esteemed clients Jim and Kristy Clark. “
The reconstruction of Atlantis is expected to be completed in spring 2022.
