S/V Atlas 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 Atlas has perfect space and load carrying ability for her size. She is a joy to sail!

Atlas's start was in a very small charter fleet in Turkey where she was meticulously cared for by the company. Her service was their top priority. In 2017 she was bought by a couple who did an extensive refit in order to sail them across the Atlantic to Grenada. We purchased Atlas in Grenada and imported her into the USA where she is now registered. We continued the upgrades and love, and she has given our family two amazing years cruising and exploring the Bahamas. She is the perfect boat for anyone looking for a cat that is well cared for, reliable and a delight to sail.

The saloon area includes a modern galley and serving counter, a comfortable lounge area with dining table and navigation station that are all set in a sweeping arc pattern, as well as the wrap-around seating and table in cockpit. The Salon is large enough to accomodate 8 passengers and the Galley Up design incorporates the Galley, Salon and cockpit as one large living area.

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.

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.

Atlas is an excellent liveaboard catamaran and a proven ocean sailor. With a shallow draft she is at ease island hopping in search of the best anchorages. In the blue water on a long passage her speed and stability make her fun to sail. She is roomy, full of light, has great visibility and easy to handle. Atlas, is well-maintained and fully outfitted, ready for the start of many more wonderful adventures.

Although the engine hours are high, (8625 / 8725 hours) the motors were meticulously maintained. Our intent was to replace both motors, however besides the standard maintenance items like water pump, exhaust elbows and alternators the motors always worked great and never gave any indication of needing replacement.
