This William Atkin designed classic was built at the Seimans Boat Yard, Gresham, Oregon. She is a one-off design, in size midway between the familiar 32' Eric and 26' Eric Jr, Colin Archer style, Atkin designs, with a layout identical to that of the smaller Eric Jr.
"Altair" comes with a newer Yanmar 2 cyl diesel, and new standing and running rigging. If you share a love for these beautiful classics and would like to see Altair for yourself, give me a call to arrange your personal viewing.
