About this Yacht
SKYLARK - The new Atlantic 72 Catamaran design builds on 32 years and over a million miles of reliable cruising performance.
Built by Aquidneck Custom Composites of Bristol, Rhode Island, to a sleek Chris White design, SKYLARK can carry you worldwide on voyages that most will only dream of. Like all Atlantic Cats, she’s designed to be easily and safely handled by a small crew. There are 2 king-berth suites and 2 queen-berth guest suites for guests, plus dedicated crew quarters, and a galley designed by an experienced chef that includes spacious cold storage and professional appliances. On deckhand forepeak storage can accommodate a wide selection of cruising accessories, such as paddleboards, kayaks, kiteboards and snorkel gear.
Great underwing clearance and a soft-riding hull form eliminates pounding. The interior is optimized for cruising comfort both underway and at anchor. Ample living areas forward and aft, excellent ventilation and a protected watch-keeping station, a gourmet galley and dedicated work spaces all contribute to cruising joy.
Catamaran SKYLARK delivers true high performance. Windward performance is exceptional; she points high and tacks easily. A powerful yet easy to handle sail plan, efficient underwater foils, and slender easily driven hulls combine to produce fantastic sailing.
