Hekla is a beautifully finished example of the Atlantic 57 design. The owners utilized the artistry of the builders to customize the interior with fantastic results.


Laminated gloss varnished bamboo trim is at once unconventional and beautiful. Bamboo is extremely durable as well as rapidly grown for sustainable harvest.  

Floors in the accommodation were artistically painted with nautical themes then carefully coated with clear urethane and light non-skid to make them completely durable.

Helka has been lightly used and carefully maintained, with many recent upgrades. She's a great performance cruising boat and is ready to go.



Advanced co brokerage Florida Sail is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Chris White Designs.
