New Model: Atlantis 58

Atlantis presented in Cannes its new flagship the 58 which makes itself the biggest model of the range ever built by the Piacenza, Italy based builder.  Before to this the biggest Atlantis build was the Stefano Righini designed 55 which started production in 2004, and was stopped in 2009. The 58 model which measures over 61 feet takes also place of the 54 as the biggest model of the current Altantis line up, and follows the new lines as started last year by NeoDesign of Salvetti and Biaggi with the 48.  The 58 also continues the We Are Open Atlantis philosophy for a very fresh exterior aft deck, although since then the builder part of the Azimut Benetti Group is also now showing rendering for an option of a four part patio door dividing the cockpit area.  The lower cabin plan apart having a C-shaped saloon, and galley in standard form offers three double cabins, with a full beam owners suite.  But the option exists here too for a replacement to the third cabin, with an office, or a gym.  Very original idea and rare to find for an open sport yacht of this dimensions I must add.  Power options are twin MAN engines of considerable power for the size of the Altantis 58 with standard being twin MAN 1000 or optional 1200hp.  Hull one which is powered by the bigger option has since its maiden voyage in early September from Savona to Cannes, and Genoa done recently a long trip up to Turkey which in its first sea trials delivered three extra digits to the predicted top speed of 38 knots.
