Dutchman Ed Kastelein is the owner of the sailing yacht Atlantic. Kastelein is a descendant of the founders of the Holland-America Line (HAL). The Holland America cruise line was sold to Carnival Corporation. With the proceeds the family started investing through HAL Holding. Ed Kastelein spents a lot of his time in yachting. After owning, restoring, rebuilding or recreating a number of famous yachts such as Thendara, Aile Blanche, Borkumriff, Zaca a te Moana and most recently the Herreshoff racing schooner Eleonora, Ed Kastelein planned his ultimate masterpiece: the recreation of the 3-mast schooner Atlantic. Ed Kastelein built on his vast experience and has once again constructed a yacht that no-one thought would ever sail again. The project was certainly his most ambitious; with her length over deck of 185 feet (56 metres) she is the largest classic racing schooner ever to be recreated. The schooner Atlantic has her own website.
