Atlanta 25

Ian Anderson designed the Hurley 24/70 for Hurley Marine in 1972, as a larger version of the long-running and very successful Hurley 22, but with a more modern look, and in particular, with more headroom. He also switched from the long keel of the earlier Hurley designs to a more modern fin and skeg configuration. Most Hurley 24/70s were inboard engined, with a 5 hp Petter diesel, but some were outboard-powered.

When Hurley went out of business in 1974 the mouldings of the Hurley 24/70 were taken over by Atlanta Marine, who marketed the yacht as the Atlanta 24, and later cut the hull mould amidships and stretched it from 23' 9" to 24' 9" to make the Atlanta 25.

 

There is in practice little difference between the Hurley built H24/70s and the Atlanta 24s and 25s. All are solidly built small cruisers with good sailing performance (the bilge keel versions are the same draught as the fin-keelers), plus good accommodation for the size of boat. Despite the roomy interior, the cockpit is also surprisingly spacious for a boat of just under 24 feet long.

The rig has a very high aspect main, and a large genoa, which combined with a low static wetted area, and relatively long overhangs increasing the waterline length when heeled, and a high ballast ratio, gives good sailing performance. The fin keel versions have a swept back long fin keel, and the bilge-keelers have splayed twin keels of the same draught.

Yachting Monthly reviewed the design in 2001, commenting that they were "....a super little boat, ideal for a young family or singlehanded" and "....does exude confidence in a 'tough little battleship' sort of way"

PBO's review of the H24/70 in 2002 concluded "....Few 24-footers can boast a cockpit of that length. Neither can many of them match the Hurley's blend of roomy accommodation, an easygoing nature and a respectable turn of speed - qualities that will never go out of fashion"
