Alan Vines and Charles Currey of Fairey Marine had a strong vision of light, seaworthy and practical yachts with room for all of the family, able to explore shallow creeks and rivers, the coast and ‘go foreign’. Working with the Fairey Marine design consultant Uffa Fox, they developed the twin lifting keel Atalanta 26.
From its launch in 1956 the Atalanta proved immediately popular from its launch in 1956. In 1958 they developed the 20′ Fulmar using many of the same design principle and just one of the keels. In 19XX they extended the freeboard and coachroof of the Atalanta to create the more roomy Titania, and the concept was further expanded in 1961 with a 31′ development of the Atalanta.
