As the largest fore and aft rigged 'pleasure' sailing yacht ever to be built, she will be a bench mark yacht for the next and future millenniums.

Extensive use of Computers have been utilised in the design process of Athena. 3D Computer generated views of the engine room helped with equipment placement, piping runs and space utilization.


Looking down from 200ft, what a sight.

In close co-operation, Beeldsnijder, Dijkstra and Prior have researched the 'Golden Age of Sail' for inspiration, whilst retaining a healthy respect for modern aspects of yacht design.

Bridge wings will afford good visibility in harbor and when under sail and generous living spaces will afford the luxuries often only encountered on modern motor yachts.

A dedicated entertainment room and the latest computer technologies will further distinguish Athena, and earn her a place in maritime history.
