S/Y “ZOE” is an Atlantide 40 built in 1995 in ltaly by Cantieri Franchlni to a design by Studio Starkel. She is a center cockpit cruising sailboat featuring  a hull in monolithic fiberglass in vinylester resin, with an external lead ballast and a skeg hung rudder. ZOE is rigged with her original aluminium mast and boom which in 2016 were removed and recoated in gloss white. In fact, in 2016 ZOE went through a major refitting activity to make it safe and comfortable for long distance offshore navigation.

ZOE is sailed as a cutter, with a 55 sqm yankee, a 15 sqm staysail, a 40 sqm main sail. For downwind navigation she is equipped with two carbon fiber whisker poles , each to be mounted on its own track on the side of the mast holding out the yankee and an additional 50 sqm staysail. ZOE also features a 60 sqm code zero and a 65 sqm gennaker for light wind sailing. Both the forestay and the staysail are equipped with Bamar rolller furlers.
