The AOA Fairey Atalanta 31 Register aims to record the history of all thirteen Atalanta 31 hulls built. The prototype A31-1 appeared in 1962 and was sailed by Alan Vines from Hamble to Le Havre. He then took her to the Mediterranean on a lorry for his summer holidays. Following this, and other successful trials, eleven more hulls were moulded and ten boats built, two of them by enthusiasts from kits. The construction of the twelfth boat was delayed until 1974 when she was put together by Mr & Mrs Burnett with the help of Captain Urry, a founder member of the Atalanta Owners Association and one-time owner of Atalanta A1 and A5. No lifting keels were available for A31-12 so bilge keels were fitted together with a skeg.
The AOA aim to maintain a complete Register of all Fairey Marine sailing yachts recording the status of each yacht since they were built. Below are the latest details we hold for each of the Atalantas.
