Sunny skies greeted Atomic as she slipped into the Mediterranean Sea on June 10. It’s just the first of many tastes of salt water for the 210-footer (64-meter), since her owner intends to visit remote regions worldwide.
Interestingly, Atomic is both a third and a second superyacht. She represents the third launch based on a design that Espen Oeino has done for VSY. If you have been following the Italian shipyard for some time, you may remember the two previous megayachts are Candyscape II (now Sealyon), from 2009, and RoMa, from 2010. As for being a second superyacht, Atomic is a successor to a smaller, same-named Sunrise Yachts project from 2014.
Like his previous yacht, the owner requested Darnet Design handle the interior. While we do not yet have photos, it should be serene. Special layout requests include balconies off the master suite, which further provides panoramic views. In addition, the owner of Atomic wants to spend time with guests in an infinity pool aft on the sundeck and around a fire pit forward on the same deck. Better yet, just like his previous yacht, he has a kitted-out dive center for 12 people below decks.
Because the owner is passionate about seeing sea life, especially in remote regions, he wants to ensure that Atomic leaves as little impact as possible. Therefore, the yacht has Dynamic Positioning, for anchorless station-keeping. She also has diesel-electric thrusters, which can be used for navigation instead of the main engines.
Look for Atomic to start cruising within the next few months.
