Atlantide, the classic 122-foot Philip & Sons build from 1930, has arrived at Royal Huisman’s Huisfit facility in the Netherlands for a refit that is expected to be finished in spring 2022.
The owner of Atlantide is Silicon Valley’s Jim Clark, who in 2020 commissioned the yard to refit his J-Class yacht Hanuman, along with other vessels in previous years. The work on Atlantide will be more of a restoration than a refit, according to Huisfit.
Atlantide was shipped from Newport, Rhode Island, to the Netherlands the first week of 2021.
“If a discerning client commissions a fourth very substantial project to the same shipyard, you just know that the work you perform is truly appreciated,” Jan Timmerman, CEO of Royal Huisman, stated in a press release. “So we are most honored to find ourselves in the position to realize yet another dream for our esteemed clients Jim and Kristy Clark.”
How much work does Huisfit expect to do on Atlantide? The yard is calling the restoration “a project so grand in scale that we will be allocating it the same status as a new project.”
