Chasing an FP Athena on Aus East Coast
 
Hi All,

I'm wanting to take a closer look at a Fountaine Pajot Athena 38. There doesn't seem to be that many around and I'm yet to see one in the flesh. Anywhere on the East Coast of OZ is good.... does anyone on here own one or know someone that does?

I'm thinking one of these or a Lagoon 38 but am thinking the Lagoon is a lot more roomy than the Athena. That being said, there are many Athena's around for $150 - $200k, so it's going to be interesting to compare them.

AA.

If you are looking to buy - try multihull solutions. If you are looking to look, and then buy OS, then best bet is probably via an owners forum/group etc. There used to be a number of them in charter, but I am not aware of any now.

Unfortunately I doubt if I'd find one at Multihull solutions, probably a bit old for them.

I'm bringing one down to Brisbane as I write. Stuck in Singapore for repairs but hope to be on the East Coast in August-ish!! T
