The Athena 38 is one of the catamarans that made Fountaine Pajot one of the most famous catamaran builder of the world, thanks to his 2000 pieces produced in 26 years.
The boat, projected by Joubert-Nivelt studio, is a good compromise between the style of its lines and the practicality of its areas. Thaught for a cruise aim, the Athena 38 is characterized by an efficient organisation of the interior areas and an ease of driving although with a small crew; these features made this catamaran ideal for the charter.
Even with gentle wind the Athena 38 is fast and reactive, it boasts a mast split at 7/8, a sail plan made up of a completely fence mainsail and a furling jib of 35 square meter.
In order to intensify the comfort on board and the sailing functionality the builder settled many solutions: a cockpit with bimini, a folding table with comfortable seats for the crew, the area of governance provided with a tools panel located on the starboard side of the entry to the below deck with a wide viewing angle.
The acces to the sea is assisted by some steps placed on the transom, besides on the bow there's a classic net trampoline placed between the two hulls. The multihull boasts four double cabins (two for each hulls, astern and on the bow), separated by a bathroom with an independent acces. Much attention was also given to thermal and acoustic insulation of the boat and to the position of the points of light and ventilation.
