STUNNING 90m SAILING YACHT ATHENA JOINS THE BURGESS SALES FLEET

The stunning three masted schooner ATHENA, one of the largest sailing yachts available on the market, has joined the Burgess fleet.

Representing a rare purchase opportunity, ATHENA is a unique offering in the world of watercraft collectors. Her creators, the world-class Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman is renowned for delivering high quality custom designed yachts which are destined to retain certain desirability on the second hand market. She was built in 2004, underwent a huge refit in 2011 before her 10-year Lloyds Survey in 2014 and is now offered in immaculate condition.

At 90m, she is the fourth largest sailing yacht in the world and combines the talents of Pieter Beelsnijder for her striking exterior and interior with the expertise of Dykstra Naval Architects for her naval architecture. On deck expect vast expanses of space divided into intimate sections to ensure her sheer size doesn’t intimidate. Finished to a high standard, varnished teak cabin tops and nautical themed seating areas pull focus over her streamlined classic shape; some 2,500 square metres of sail power hangs overheads and with superb engineering coupled with first class sail handling equipment, ATHENA expertly fuses exhilarating performance with an air of grandeur derived from the golden age of sailing.

Her interior is masterfully thought out ensuring a completely liveable, functional and luxurious space. In total, five cabins accommodate up to 12 guests with a full beam master suite offering a separate study, walk in wardrobe and luxurious bathroom complete with jacuzzi tub. The rest of the communal areas remind of old world charm with lightly stained mahogany, rich colours and plush soft furnishings.

Heading back to days of old, ATHENA masterfully updates turn of the century yachting.
