Why Spend Millions on a Land Yacht? Get a Real Atlantis 51 Yacht for a Tad Over $800K

Some people, myself included, are all about buying some sort of terrestrial vehicle to travel the world in, when in reality, our bodies and minds yearn for the waters. Well, Azimut Yachts seems to know this and offers a beast of a machine for just a tad over $800K.

Folks, it’s called the Atlantis 51 and is the work of Azimut Yachts, a team that has been in the yachting business since 1969. Well, in all those years, Azimut seems to have understood that everyone deserves a place in the yachting world, and in that spirit, I've chosen to bring to light one of the largest (and under $1 million) ships that this team has on the market, the Atlantis 51.

To help you understand what’s in store for you, know that the starting price for a new 51 is €710,000, which roughly equates to $826,344 at current exchange rates. Yes, folks, this is more affordable than some land yachts or motorhomes. Heck, one is already set for delivery to some lucky owner in 2022.

As it stands, the Atlantis 51 comes in with a length of 16.18 meters (59.6 feet) and a beam of 4.55 meters (14.9 feet). This yields enough space to accommodate up to 12 passengers. With a hull construction out of GRP, this machine comes in with a displacement of 22.3 tons.

Even so, fueled by two Volvo IPS 800 engines with 600 horsepower each, the 51 can touch a max speed of 35 knots (40.2 mph), quite the thrill considering you’re doing this on water. Overall, only 206 nautical miles (237 terrestrial miles) of range is offered, but that’s more than enough to be cruising around for two to three days, depending on how far into international waters you venture.

As for features that future owners may be privy to, the list is quite extensive, heck, there’s even a toy or tender garage squeezed into the ship you see. Since we’re already here, let’s see what else the 51 has in store for us normal folk.

The uppermost deck, the flybridge, features a convertible top built into the superstructure, and while the bow of the ship includes an exposed sun pad, this area, too, has a Bimini to offer shade in case you get too crispy from the sun’s rays.

Also on this deck, guests will have access to a lounge meant for dining, relaxing, and drinking, while the rest of the deck is reserved for nothing more than another sun pad and access to the beach deck, the one place where I would end up spending most of my time if I owned an Atlantis 51.

The lowest deck on the ship is also the place where you’ll find interior bedding options for guests and owners. Best of all, because it’s a rather small craft, this ship doesn’t require a captain or crew to control it, meaning that interior spaces are only for guests. But someone does need to have a license in order to pilot this beauty.

At the bow of 51 lies the owner’s cabin with an en-suite bathroom and features like a wardrobe and plenty of storage for whatever you need on your trip. Beyond this space, a galley and modular lounge allow you to cook and enjoy meals indoors but can also sleep extra guests. Aft, on the other hand, bunk bedding is found on the port side of the ship, while starboard, a VIP cabin for your BFF is available.

Now, have a good look at the gallery so you can understand exactly what you may be in store for, and while you may think that $826K may be a bit much for you alone, you can easily get a group of eight friends together and purchase an Atlantis 51. After all, you can easily turn it into a money-maker by putting it up for charter once you’re bored of it.
