The International Training Ship Atyla was hand designed and hand built in 1980 in Spain by a group of friends to circumnavigate the world. She changed name 5 times, but she never changed ownership. She was launched in the north of Spain, then moved to the Canary Islands and served as just a tourist boat after the sponsor of the circumnavigation pulled out, where she remained until 2005. She went to Cantabria to represent the region and was given a good refit in 2011. Two years later, under the name "Atyla", she participated in her first Tall Ships' Regatta. After that, her young captain (nephew of the ship's designer) decided to fully dedicate her to outdoor education.
The Atyla is a true Spanish ship! She boasts the magnificent-looking, hand carved wooden elements, with the great entourage. To relax, enjoy the leather seating in the saloon where you can listen to the crew’s stories from far-away seas. In hot weather you can lounge in one of the shaded outside areas to hide from the sun. The crew of Atyla is Spanish, but the official language on board is English. And of course the meals have a Spanish air about them as well! Take a glass of wine on the aft and relax while in port and be an active member of the crew on deck during the day.
Atyla offers a very good personal development program, with a professional coach on board. Join the Ship and use the sailing experience to deepen your knowledge of topics such as leadership, intercultural communication, environmental awareness, emotional intelligence and critical thinking.
The crew of Atyla is friendly and inclusive, and will make you feel right at home!
On each trip Atyla accommodates a total of 24 people in 5 rooms, sleeping in private bunk beds. The crew is composed of 5 professionals (two officers, an engineer, the chef and the coach), 4 watch leaders (people with experience sailing on ATYLA) and 15 trainees. For day trips and events, Atyla can take up to 70 people.
The Ship is fully equipped both on deck and inside: spacious kitchen, large meeting room with couches and TV, bathrooms, indoor and outdoor sound systems, deck lighting, awnings, safety systems.
