“The boat was built in 1971 by John Perry Marine Ltd. (Rochester - Kent). It was order by the Surgeon of Elisabeth Taylor. He used it during several years for sailing around the world. After that he chartered it to a British couple who use it for around 20 years for charter around the Med., especially in Turkey ("It was the best sailing charter yacht in the Eastern Mediterranean for many years"). The couple stopped chartering and they return to England I then purchased the yacht (I am still in contact with the couple).

When I purchased her in 2010 she was lying in La Manga del Mar Menor (Murcia, Spain). I carried out some renovations to the boat before continuing to offer skippered charters in the Balearic Islands and in 2015 GRAND ATALAYA was the first water activity recommended by Trip Advisor in Mallorca. Having now chartered the boat for a number of years, with the birth of my daughter, I have now decided that I do not have time to charter the boat and therefore, I have decided to sell her.
