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.

It is one of the most favorite destinations worldwide; in the latest years, it has developed its industrial economy and it is now become an economical dynamic city in the south-east of Asia. It should be visited to understand the countless aspects of the East, thanks to its mix of traditions and modernity.
It is possible to note the difference between the craving city with its ultra-modern skyscrapers and the big department stores on one hand. On the other hand, tourists are attracted by the serenity of the temples - called Wat in Thai - that design the city.

A worth-seeing stop is the Grand Palace area, where the Wat Phra Kaew is set, that is the temple dedicated to Buddha Smeraldo connected with the residential buildings of the Thailand's Royal Family. It's a top destination for several tourists and pilgrims. Another place of worship is the Wat Pho, the oldest monastery in Bangkok, where you can find the temple dedicated to the reclining Buddha, with its massive 46m long and 15m high statue. Also the Wat Traimit, the temple dedicated to the Golden Buddha, is extremely important.
Chinatown is definitely an unmissable spot to find many low-cost shops. Shopping is another reason to visit Bangkok, because of its modern department stores and local markets.
