Athena: Inside the 79m Royal Huisman flagship yacht

Royal huisman's £70m schooner heralds a return to the golden age of yachting.

Words: Gentleman's Journal

There is something about a schooner that ultramodern super yachts simply cannot replicate. With its classic styling, Royal Huisman’s Athena epitomises this romantic tradition, and nothing beats cutting through the water in this 79 metre super yacht, with the wind in both your hair and the sails.

athena superyacht

Designed by Dykstra Naval Architects – with input from the uniquely talented Pieter Beeldsnijder – Athena has all of the charm of a classic yacht, but none of the creaky build quality and dated technology.

Instead, this three mast schooner, one of the largest sailing yachts ever created, boasts carbon fibre gaffs with in-boom furling, 2,500 square meters of sail power and a maximum speed of 19 knots (crusing speed of 16).

Renowned interior designer Rebecca Bradley has created a plush, traditional design for all of the rooms and cabins. Dark stained mahogany throughout helps to afford Athena a look and feel of grandeur that evokes a bygone era of sea voyages. And, with three levels and five cabins, there is plenty of room for up to 10 guests.

On deck, the vast expanses of space are divided into more intimate areas that have been designed to optimise outdoor living. The beautiful varnished teak joinery is crafted to an exceptional standard, and a 360-degree bird’s eye view can be found from the 58 metre, hydraulically-hoisted crow’s nest.

Athena’s on-board navigation system is unrivalled following a refit in 2011, and this update is yet another instance of Royal Huisman’s flagship seamlessly blending traditional yachting art with modern technology. If you yearn for a return to the golden age of yachting, then this £70 million throwback is for you.

PRESENTING ATHENA

When launched, sailing yacht ATHENA was the world’s largest private sailing yacht.  Custom-built by Royal Huisman in 2004, the three-masted schooner was designed by Pieter Beeldsnijder, both interior and exterior, with naval architecture by Dykstra, and interior design by Rebecca Bradley.  This 90 meter work of art is still one of the largest private yacht charter sailing yachts on the market.

A classic schooner for modern times, Royal Huisman sail yacht ATHENA features a cinema, library, and numerous social areas for 12 charter guests.

Lightly-stained mahogany adorns the interiors of schooner ATHENA, enriching the air of classic comfort.  To avoid a feeling of overwhelming space, Beeldsnijder divided the social areas and accommodations into “human size” proportions.  The result is a yacht that feels welcoming and exudes old world charm. Soft furnishings and fabrics are used throughout the interior, further enhancing the warmth that recalls a golden age of sailing.

ACCOMMODATIONS

The schooner’s interior layout accommodates up to 10 guests in 5 staterooms, including a master suite, 3 double cabins, and 1 twin cabin.

Multiple amenities exist for the guests’ comfort and wellness. For instance, air conditioning and a gymnasium.  In addition, WiFi for those desiring internet and mobile capabilities.

Vintage Excellence, Epic Scale

  • By Yachting Staff
  • Updated: November 15, 2013

athena superyacht

295-foot Royal Huisman sailing yacht Athena

The 295-foot Royal Huisman Athena — one of the largest sailing yachts launched since the Golden Age of Yachting in the early 1900s — is being made available for charter during the upcoming Christmas and New Year’s holidays in the Caribbean.

“This impressive, three-masted schooner offers vintage excellence at an epic scale,” according to management company YCO Yacht. “Meticulously maintained and fitted with brand-new carpets of the highest caliber, Athena, with her crew of 18, offers an unparalleled charter experience for up to 10 guests.”

Athena was built in 2004, and her most recent major refit was in 2011. Despite being nearly a decade old, she remains the one of the largest private sailing yachts in the world, often listed as No. 2 behind the 305-foot Lürssen Eos . Athena is a performer, too, capable of speeds as high as 19 knots.

Guest accommodations aboard Athena include a master suite with private library, three queen-bed cabins and one twin-bed cabin. Beyond the regular guest areas and toys such as water skis and scuba equipment, charter clients also have access to the crow’s nest — which offers spectacular views from a height of 196 feet up the mast.

The weekly base rate to charter Athena this winter is $500,000. Learn more at www.y.co.

Luxury Sailing yacht ATHENA is a remarkable superyacht and at 295 feet overall (90 meters), ATHENA is the largest private sailing yacht of the modern era and the largest all-aluminum yacht built to date. She is built entirely of high tensile Alustar and she is a giant which displaces a staggering 1,177 tons. Not only is she the largest but she has been created to the highest standards of traditional craftsmanship whilst incorporating inspiring technical achievement.

athena superyacht

ATHENA’s three masts soar 197 feet above the deck supporting 28,632 square feet of sail. Her beauty is obvious, but Athena is also the sort of marvel we have come to expect from Royal Huisman and the myriad Dutch industries pressed into service to ensure her timely delivery while meeting the owner's demand for the highest quality.
