The Toys of Summer 2012: Atlantis 58
The Atlantis 58, the new flagship of the Azimut Benetti Group’s Atlantis brand, offers a wealth of ways to enjoy the water this summer—from manning the helm as the vessel reaches speeds as fast as 40 knots to working up a sweat in the optional belowdecks gym before going for a swim. The 58-foot yacht’s main-deck saloon features a teak dining table that seats eight. The saloon opens to a sun bed and swim platform at the stern, and a second sun bed is located forward of the cockpit. The standard configuration for the belowdecks living area includes three staterooms, but the Atlantis 58 also is offered in a two-stateroom layout that replaces the third cabin with an entertainment room, an office, or a glass-enclosed gym. Power options include dual MAN diesel engines, each with 1,000 hp or 1,200 hp output. The more potent pairing enables the 40-?knot top speed. Pricing for the Atlantis 58 begins at about $1.6 million.
