Gavin Atkin over at intheboatshed brought these boats to light today. Built by the legendary British yard Fairey Marine both the Atalanta and her slightly larger spinoff Titiana would serve well as minimal cruisers.The series started in 1955 and it's a model of the streamlined thinking of that period- soft curves, but these may add seaworthiness. That said, these look like very interesting cruising boats, with a center cockpit and small aft cabin, perfect for the singlehander. They were hot moulded, using the technology from the war years. In fact, Fairey was responsible for many aircraft built during WWII using this same method. It's a lovely boat, full of soft curves . Not many iterations were built but you might pick one up. Put a junk rig on her and sail around. The harbor, the island, the world. Click the here to reach the owners group.
