S/V Double Instinct is a Fountaine Pajot Athena 38 for sale by owner. This Joubert/Nivelt design is a milestone in the development of a well performing, spacious and well built cruising catamaran with very good windward ability. S/V Double Instinct has perfect space and load carrying ability for her size. She is a joy to sail!

Even though the Athena 38 is Fountaine Pajot's smallest offshore cruiser, she includes proven innovations and was created for family cruising. She can offer all the creature comforts with easy handling, ample accommodations and stream-lined decor, and the large trampoline area forward. Although stylish, her size is easy to handle and she pretty close to the ideal boat which combines comfort, livability and sail handling.

Our boat hs always been in the hands of a well-caring owner and we fitted her out for extended cruising. S/V Double Instinct is a strong and fast cruiser which we purchased in 2015 and fitted her for extensive sailing. After three and a half years and over 15 000 nautical miles we have to move back to land for family and health reasons. Here is what we have done to her since our purchase.

Complete bottom job(Professional blister job, 3 coats barrier coat, 3 coats antifouling) New Standard Horizon GX1300 VHF New Digital Yacht iAIS AIS Receiver and NMEA wireless server New long range Metz Antenna New Raymarine autopilot Drive New Raymarine SPX10 course computer New Raymarine wind instrument New trampoline rope New kitchen cabinet finishing New ceiling panels throughout New Garmin BlueCharts for Western Caribbean.
On our maiden voyage we sailed her from the Chesapeake to the Bahamas, Jamaica, Belize, Mexico and back to the Chesapeake for a total of over 4000 Nautical miles... On our second voyage we sailed from the Chesapeake to the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Haiti, DR, Puerto Rico, Vieques, Culebra, St-Thomas, St-Croix, St-Martin and back to the Chesapeake for a total of again over 4000 Nautical miles... Our third voyage was from the Chesapeake to the Bahamas, Haiti, DR, PR, St-Croix, Guadeloupe, St-Lucia, St-Vincent and Grenada(where she is now). We will be sailing her back to the Chesapeake from Grenada W.I. from January 2019 to June 2019 and she is available for viewing, sea trials and purchase at any time.

Safety is foremost with the Athena 38, as these catamarans often cross oceans with supreme safety and comfort. High bridge decks, top quality fittings and drag reducing hulls make this a true blue water boat. The all composite construction, ergonomic, yet smartly styled interior and overhanging coach roof are all trademarks of the beautiful range of Fountaine Pajot catamarans, which can be found in every corner of the globe.

This proven, seaworthy Athena 38 'design is fully equipped for a comfortable long-haul passage. It has been maintained throughout by her current owner and is ready for takeover from the spring of 2019 in the Caribbean.

This boat actually can be sold while in U.S. waters ... however, she would be subject to 1.5% US customs duty plus any registration fees required by any US state.
