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. Fabrics were carefully chosen to mimic the leafy colors of bamboo and the combination is most eye pleasing.


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, she's a great performance cruising boat and is ready to go.


Hulls, decks and pilothouse are constructed from vacuum bagged Epoxy resin and high performance uni-glass fabrics cored with “Core-Cell” SAN foam and PVC foam. Additional laminate of Kevlar on the hull bows for extra collision protection.

All exterior surfaces are spray painted with linear polyurethane "AlexSeal"coating.

Crossbeams are built of uni-directional carbon fiber/epoxy with foam cored epoxy/glass bulkheads.

Extensive use is made of uni-directional carbon fiber reinforcement in high load areas of hulls and decks.

Interior joinerwork and floorboards are all cored panels to provide stiffness at low weight.
