The Athena 38 successfully combines beauty with intelligence. Beauty in its shape: the hulls, the sunshade, and the aft skirt; and intelligence in its design, which makes handling, berthing, mooring, and storage so easy. She has a functional helmsman's cockpit for navigation, a spacious cockpit for sunbathing, and very convenient steps at the rear of the hulls, providing the best possible access for all kinds of recreation on the water. The high-tech materials, the build quality and the choice of high-quality fittings make the Athena 38 an especially safe and pleasant boat for all weathers. The high level of Fountaine Pajot standards can be seen belowdecks. There is a large saloon with a well-equipped chart table, and the galley has very large storage and refrigerator space. The private areas in the well-insulated hulls feature four light and airy cabins, optimum use of space for king-size beds, and independent toilets in the corridors with built-in showers.

I had a very good experience with Will Miller at TMC. He is very knowledgeable about his business and took care of all aspects of my purchase, and where he couldn’t places me in touch with the people who could. The transaction went very smoothly as far as I was concerned.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

I couldn’t be more grateful to have had TMC on my side throughout this process. Buying was a new experience for me and I know it wasn’t the easiest deal you’ve ever had, but you were competent and kind throughout.
