New Model: Atlantis 44

Atlantis presents the page two of its new direction with second 44 model debuting at Genoa. Important to note that both the new Atlantis models represented a full novelty and where not just a make up change to an old design. The 44 replaces two units from Altantis who both sold quite well, the 42 which was the first badged Atlantis, and the top selling Gobbi designed 425 SC. Young designers Neo Design who take over from Righini as expected bring a family feeling to the details shown on the 48 presented just about a month ago in Cannes. You have the open feeling with a hard top which is light on features, and the cockpit although smaller features a similar layout to the bigger sister with a sun pad aft, C-shaped dinette, galley opposite, and lounger under the windscreen. The interior has also a similar layout to the 48, with a full beam owners room, VIP suite to fore, galley, and a C-shaped saloon. Basically if you compare it to the 48 you miss a high low bathing platform, a smaller aft deck, and stern drive propulsion instead of line shafts. Stern drives do consume less to shaft or pods, although higher maintenance costs are to be had. Power for the Atlantis 44 comes from Cummins 350hp with an unusual for a European builder for having a Bravo Three dual propeller propulsion set up. So far there seems to be no Volvo option, we will see if this will change.
