Philip & Sons

Atlantide’s history is significant, her pedigree of owners is unmatched. Their stewardship of owning this fine vessel has kept her in pristine condition and she is arguably “better than new”.
Currently she is owned by world famous yachtsman Mr. Tom Perkins who’s other yachts include the submarine-carrying expedition yacht “Dr. No” and previous yachts, the venerable 289’ "Maltese Falcon", two Perini Navi's both named S/Y Andromeda la Dea and the 1915 - 137' classic Herreshoff racing schooner “Mariette”.
Designed by the gifted English Naval Architect Alfred Mylne (the designer of the original Royal Yacht Britannia) and launched in 1930 by Philip and Sons at Dartmouth, Atlantide (ex-Caleta) has been in continuous commission to this day.
Atlantide was built for Sir William Burton, a distinguished yachtsman who was helmsman of Shamrock IV, the J Class challenger for the 1930 America’s Cup. Sir William owned and raced a succession of 12 Metre yachts in regattas all around the East and South coasts, ending up in Cowes Week in August. Atlantide followed the yachts, providing accommodation for the owner and his guests at each regatta.
In 1939 she was requisitioned into the Royal Navy and in 1940 she joined the fleet of Little Ships to evacuate the Allied forces from Dunkirk harbour and the surrounding beaches. Atlantide was an active participant, setting out for Dunkirk on May 31st in the company with the yachts Glala and Amulree. She operated under intense enemy shell-fire and dive bomber attacks over seven days during which time she assisted various vessels and embarked 35 troops from a disabled landing craft that she then took in tow.
After the war she was bought by a Greek ship-owner who changed her name from Caleta to Ariane. Later she was renamed Corisande and based in Antibes. In the late 1980’s she was purchased by Count Nicolo delle Rose who gave her the present name of Atlantide.
In 1998 she was acquired by Thomas Perkins of San Francisco, and she underwent a complete rebuild. Her hull was reconstructed at the Manoel Island Shipyard of Malta and the new superstructure and interior was provided by Camper & Nicholson. Overall external and interior design was undertaken by Ken Freivokh Design. At the time it was rumoured to be the world's most expensive refit per metre, estimated to be worth 18-20 million dollars.

Perkins had brought her back to her original designed purpose as a gentleman's motor yacht and tender to a racing yacht.
From 1999 through 2005, Atlantide had the enviable roll as support vessel to her owner’s 1915 classic Herreshoff racing schooner Mariette...just when you thought it doesn’t get any better than this, in 2006, Tom Perkins launched the remarkable 289’ Maltese Falcon. Atlantide and “The Falcon” were show stoppers in every port the pair dropped anchor. On her own, Atlantide also cruised to distant points on the globe including the Caribbean, Canada's East and West coasts and Norway's high arctic.

After many years of enjoyment she is still kept in pristine condition, and this one-of-a-kind motor yacht with an unprecedented history is now awaiting her next owner/guardian.


Listing broker's comment: I have personally sailed aboard Atlantide on a 800 mile voyage along the rugged West Coast of North America. I can attest to her exceptional performance and sea keeping under a broad range of weather conditions.

Wheel House

The wheel house staying true to her traditional heritage is immaculate with gloss teak walls and floors with holly inlays. Panoramic views through elegantly bevelled windows are a pleasure for all to enjoy. With space for paper charts and storage for signal flags and penants, the navigation station is like stepping back in time to the days of classic yachting.


The Art Deco theme found throughout the vessel is clearly evident in the saloon where a magnificent mantelpiece, with inset Lalique panels, exquisite mother-of-pearl and abalone marquetry on either side and a built in electric fire place flanked by bookshelves, take pride of place. A overhead skylight cast in bronze and made up of many small prisms creates a delightful rainbow effect on a sunny day.

The dining rooms oval table is unique with its surface of quilted smoked maple edged with ebony. Seating is comfortable for ten. There is a glass-sculptured nymph set into the aft bulkhead which glows in the light of a myriad of fibre optics. Foward is a wall of view windows allowing guests to track the days cruise or enjoy the evening night sky.

The galley is found on the main deck to port. The entrance is via the port side deck with interior access from the main deck lobby between the sallon and dining room. Side decks allows service to the outside main deck dining table and the lobby serves the main saloon aft and the formal dining room forward.

Aft deck doors make the transition from the on deck dining table to the cozy saloon  effortless and conversation will continue to flow.


A staircase at the aft end of the main saloon leads to a lobby area from which the owner's and VIP guest staterooms are reached.

A raised bed dominated by a silk and a mirror fan-shaped headboard occupies the center of the owner's stateroom. Ample storage and a desk to port compliment the room. The forward bulkhead is distinguished by a fan of abalone and mother-of-pearl roundels. The elegant en-suite bathroom, complete with tub is flanked by a column of Lalique panels.

Forward of the lobby the VIP guest stateroom echoes the atmosphere of the owner's master with a slightly muted opulence. The themes are similar but playfully reversed giving it a distinctive ambience of its own.

The third guest double is accessed down the stairs from the mid-ship lobby. Its double bed and en-suite offer your guests a comfortable hide-away to rest up for the next day's adventures.
