Athena Yacht Hits Australia
Athena was built by Royal Huisman with Pieter Beeldsnijder for exterior and interior design and the naval architectural skills of Gerard Dijkstra & Partners. A review on Yacht Forums has some tempting pictures that show just how special this yacht is. Everything from the gleaming aluminum superstructure to the beautiful teak and mahogany details was created to the highest levels of craftsmanship. She combines the best of the traditions of classic yacht manufacturing with the latest technological advancements. The decks feature much more outdoor seating than I have seen on other sailing yachts including a massive aft deck lounger that is surrounded by a U-shaped structure for wind protection. Inside it has a huge professional kitchen and amazing mahogany-lined rooms filled with soft ivory and beige furnishings. The master suite includes a bathroom which is wreathed in white marble. The entire yacht is absolutely gorgeous if you have a chance check out the pics here and here.
