Project: Atlantic 56 Twin Deck

Commissioned by Atlantic Yachts, to a design by Vripack Naval Architects of Sneek the dutch builder and design firm developed an entirely new project model, the 56 Twin Deck. In a market where there is much competition, but also much of the same type of yachts, Atlantic with the help of Vripack sets to brings a revolutionary motor yacht. For example Atlantic has asked to the design firm to do everything finished as flush with the surface as much as possible but also other items set to leave an uncluttered deck as the anchor assembly concealed below deck, fenders storage, concealed hydraulic passarelle gangway, and aft garage for a three metre plus tender. The 56 Twin Deck accommodation layout below deck offers a two or three double cabin choices, and still featuring the much desired mid ship owner's suite with its own separate shower and toilet. Next door to the owners cabin is also an utility room with washing machine and a separate dryer. To fore there is the VIP cabin with a luxurious double bed. On the starboard side fore there is a room that can be specified as a third cabin with double bunk berths or alternatively as a study office. A second head features to fore port side, this also having a washing machine. In the centre of the lower accommodation deck there is the C-shaped sofa to starboard with a fully equipped galley opposite. Above on the main deck is the living area with a central fully equipped pilot station to fully control the 56 Twin Deck, and to port side there is a round settee with two luxurious club chairs. The wheelhouse here is also fitted with a panoramic, electrically operated sliding roof, completely flush concealed. The Atlantic 56 Twin Deck also has a spacious aft deck with an aft bench where the lounge table can be stored, which also features easy connection to the side decks leading to fore, here having a big sun-deck with underneath storage space. The 56 Twin Deck will be powered with IPS600 D6 435hp engines.
