In 1928 Burgess, Rigg, and Morgan produced a prototype of the class. Burgess sailed her around New England as a demonstrator. Her large cockpit with a generous sail plan of nearly 400 sq ft with a club footed jib, proved easy to sail, whether racing or as a pleasurable day sailer.

The boats were built, assembly-line style, by Abeking & Rasmussin, in Lemwerder, Germany at a price of $1,800 delivered in the USA. 80 boats were ordered that first Summer, proving the success of the design

Known Racing History: ?

The Atlantic class is still active, and new boats are available in fiberglass from Cape Cod Shipbuilding
