Expedition Superyacht with Green Credentials


Collaboration between a leading Spanish shipyard and a top British superyacht designer has resulted in the creation of a 24 metre hybrid superyacht concept.

Atollvic shipyard, the superyacht construction and refit division of the 36-year-old Spanish Vicalsa Group of companies, is to partner with the yacht design studios, Dixon Yacht Design.
They both share a common desire to develop a revolutionary superyacht constructed out of steel that has been designed to be suitable for independent around-the-world sailing.
The concept called, Atollvic Adventure, will be 24 metres in length, have a displacement of 62 tonnes, a draught of 3.5 metres and beam of 6.22 metres.  The idea is to offer a fresh, new approach to cruising. The “hybrid” mini superyacht has been designed for long-term cruising and is a modern reinvention of the traditional motor sailor – rugged, yet stylish, with good performance under both power and sail.
It has been designed to accommodate guests for long periods.  Design features have been added to ensure comfort and style and ensure safety is maximised
Atollvic, a specialist in the construction, refit and repair of luxury sail and motor yachts in steel and aluminium, will ultimately build the superyacht in steel at its Spanish shipyard in Vigo.
Dixon Yacht Design, based in Southampton, UK, has a rich heritage in naval architecture and has, over the past three decades, designed a diverse range of vessels ranging from custom sailing yachts to production motor yachts.
