Owner's commentary

Atlas Shrugged was commissioned by her first owner in 2009. After being trucked to Genoa, Italy in 2010 and sailed for 2 seasons she was shipped back to the Contest Yard and stored inside for 2 years. When I purchased her in 2013 she’d logged 1600nm and 259 engine hours.

Since then she’s undergone yearly refits & upgrades including new generator, new interior, fixed bimini/roof, new davits, new anchor, new sails, teak deck recaulked/refit, 2nd auto-pilot & aft air-conditioning installed, just to name a few. After almost 30.000 nm at sea and a decade as a part-time live aboard Atlas Shrugged is now looking for new owner. Although almost 15y of age this classic blue water cruiser is in impeccable condition and for sale @ 645.000 EUR (EU VAT paid).
