The Atlantic 57' has 36" of bridge deck clearance fully loaded.
A few comments from Chris White about his design.
The most beautiful part of the boat, in my opinion, is the rudder compartment where all the laminates are clear finished, steering system perfectly aligned and all equipment installed as tidy as it gets. Despite her 57 feet Lely's hull and deck structure all complete weighed close to 10,000 lbs. Fully equipped and rigged for sailing she weighs less than many production 40' cats! And she's far stronger. In build quality there is no comparison to be made to the likes of Catana, Privilege, Lagoon, etc… The Atlantic 57TMis an entirely different kind of animal designed and built to be the safest, most comfortable, best performing cruising catamaran in the world. If you don't believe me and are serious about buying a cat I will be happy to demonstrate the boat.
I'm going to ask Chris for a commission if any of you guys buy one.....
It really is a nice cat.
