Atlantic is a true replica of the legendary 3 masted schooner Atlantic launched 1903 and holder of the record for Atlantic Ocean under sail, a record that stood for 75 years.
A little bit of history
The original 3-Mast schooner Atlantic was commissioned 1903 by New York Yacht Club member Wilson Marshal. Designed by William Gardner, she soon proved an extraordinary beautiful and fast yacht. Although she won all races she entered in her first season, it was her astonishing record crossing during the 1905 Transatlantic Race that would make her the probably most celebrated schooner of the 20th Century. Under Captain Charlie Barr, Atlantic set a record that would stand for close to a century, the longest standing speed record in the history of any sport. Atlantic was however not a typical flat out racing yacht, on the contrary, she was built with all possible luxury for the owner and guests to enjoy cruising and racing in maximum comfort. The fact that during her first 40 years she merely had 3 owners, (Marshal, Vanderbilt and Lambert) goes to show that she offered anything and all to the most demanding yachtsmen.
Atlantic's maiden voyage was a two month leisurely cruise from Rotterdam to Cannes. She exceeded all expectations, sailing fast at every point of sail with amazing ease and comfort. Her motion in seaway being gentle and smooth, even in high winds and seas she moves with what the British once referred to as Majestic urgency.
Inclusions and exclusion are not standardized across the different yachts, with each offering slightly different terms. Please contact us for a proposal that details the yacht’s availability and individual pricing based on the number of guests in your party, as well as the list of the inclusions and exclusions for that particular yacht.
This Yacht offers a “Plus Expenses” Rate:
Included are the Yacht and its onboard equipment as well as the Captain, Chef and Crew’s services.
Excluded are food and beverages, fuel for the yacht and its tender, any dockage, airport transfers costs, onshore excursions and tours, as well as any cruising permits, licenses and other charter related expenses. Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
