The Atalanta Owners Association (AOA) exists to maintain an archive for the yachts of Fairey Marine and to support members and potential members in sailing, maintaining and restoring them. As part of the Association this website provides access to a wealth of information about the boats including their history and the history of the Association..

We hope that you enjoy browsing our site and hope that you might consider joining the AOA. Membership is open to anyone interested in the Atalanta, Titania, Fulmar, Atalanta 31 and Fisherman yachts. And of course to owners.

The Designs – Unique and Practical


Extraordinary, practical, innovative. For over 60 years the yachts created by Fairey Marine and Uffa Fox have been working their magic.
The concept of a light cruising yacht was Alan Vine’s in the 1950s, building on his (very) stretched Albacore Sujanwiz.  A 24′ prototype ‘Atalanta’ led to over 190 Atalanta 26s, the Titania, Atalanta 31 and the Fulmar.
Fairey also extended the construction methods to a high volume motor sailer, the Fisherman_design, with some success.
  • Strong & seaworthy
  • Lifting keels – float in 18″ water
  • Trailerable
  • Large, safe centre Cockpit
  • Satisfying performance
  • Remarkable value

Register – The boats are the heart of the Association.


A primary object of The Atalanta Owners Association has been to maintain a register of yachts.    We have been tracking the boats for nearly 60 years and you can read these individual histories and see our extensive range of photographs. The histories continue to grow with information added by members and through this website. We welcome all input from all through the Forums and page ‘Comments’.

And if you are looking for one Check out the ‘Boats for Sale‘ page.

Help for those who look after The Boats


If the boats are at the heart of the Association it is people who keep them and the AOA alive. We aim to support current and potential owners through encouragement to own, use and maintain the boats. And we also have a wealth of information available to anyone who is just interested in them.
The yachts was formed to maintain a register of the Atalanta yachts and support their owners. Established by Fairey Marine in 1958 the Association has tried to track the history of each boat.
As well as maintaining this website and the wealth of material behind it, the Association encourages members to share experiences at regular get-togethers afloat and ashore.
