Altima Yachts


Altima Yachts required a strong, rugged design for its new Voyager, one that would look good many years from now and also offer yachtsmen maximum interior volume. Altima and Bill Prince turned to workboat heritage for inspiration in solving these competing requirements. With a large pilothouse positioned well forward for excellent visibility, a Portuguese bridge and wide, covered side decks, the 68 Voyager’s main deck offers all the practicality and ease of access that experienced cruisers require.

A large covered aft deck includes a deep lounge with seating for up to eight. An integrated outdoor galley unit with a grill, icemaker, refrigerator and sink is concealed in a weather-tight cabinet. Port and starboard molded staircases lead aft to the integrated swim platform with a high, secure railing and a watertight door leading to the fifth cabin and the engine room. Stairs, not a ladder, lead up to the 40-foot long flybridge from here.

These carefully-planned seagoing attributes were incorporated into the design of the Altima 68 Voyager and wrapped in a majestic exterior which will look “just right” for decades to come. All of this is done while maintaining the practicality of easy line handling, and low maintenance costs.
