Auxiliary Power/Tanks (orig. equip.)
Twin centerboards, retractable rudder and narrow beam made this one of the earliest 'trailerable' cruising yachts of this size. The 'hot molded' construction method had been developed by the builder for the WWII Swordfish torpedo plane. George O'Day was, at the time, the US agent for Fairey Marine, and some were said to have been imported to the US. (We have yet to see one in the US) Today the ATALANTA is regarded, as a rare classic with a large percentage of the original boats still sailing.
