TC 128-1 Atalante
This exciting new TC 128 incorporates all the experiences of the owner's previous Truly Classic, as well as the know-how and expertise built up at Hoek Design over more than a hundred Classic designs to date. As is the case with all our projects, the design of the yacht is extensively optimised for performance. The hull lines, keel design and sail plan benefits from the extensive research that we have carried out over the years with tank and wind tunnel testing on these types of yachts. She will also leverage on the valuable CFD work performed on various hull designs. The project was commissioned by a repeat customer and is built by Claasen Shipyards and delivered in 2015. The interior concept incorporates an aft owner's stateroom leading to a private deckhouse and aft cockpit. Uniquely, there is also a full-beam lower saloon just forward of the owners' stateroom. This will create a dedicated interior owners' area and offer lots of privacy, especially when the owners cruise without guests. In terms of interior style, the first TC 128 will have a classic look & feel, with raised and fielded panels, white painted panels above wainscot level, and a range of classic details. Our office is responsible for all naval architecture, exterior and interior styling.
A ketch-rigged version of the same design has also been developed, based on the look of the 180-foot ketches Adele and Marie, as well as the experience gained by our office from sailing these yachts in both cruising and racing conditions.
