The sailing and cruising yacht ATAO is a stunning centre board sloop which was commissioned by an owner with a true passion for sailing. All aspects of ATAO have been carefully considered and only the very best equipment has been used in her construction. The lifting keel is a key component of the boat which, once deployed, increases the shallow draught from 2.55 to 4.20 metres, and transforms upwind capability.
The designer has created an interior of French Cherry wood panels with teak veneer flooring. There is direct access from the owner's cabin to the deckhouse, the view from which is unparalleled, as it passes over the deck and into the cockpit, the central point of this beautiful sailing yacht.Comfort of the owner and guests is uncompromised, with private access to the owner’s cabin from the deckhouse, and direct access to the saloon down a curved staircase. The crew can also access the deck through the deckhouse hatch. Both guest cabins have double beds, storage, and their own shower, while the owner’s cabin boasts a king size bed, a sitting area, a working desk, and lots of storage space.
