Fountaine Pajot Athena, 1995

  • LOA 38'
  • Beam 20.5'
  • Berthed in Daytona Beach, FL

    What's your dream?

  • Quiet and solitude, or right in the thick of things ?

    Cruising on "KIT" offers the best of both. You can escape from the maddening crowd anchored off a secluded beach, or invite the "gang" to party, swim, or snorkel places only reached by boat.

    Updated electronics, rebuilt engines, well maintained Fountaine Pajot Athena Blue Water catamaran ready for your dreams.


  • Roller furling jib/genoa with UV cover ,plastic insert to see ahead

  • Garhauer rigid boom vang (2015), removed the need for a topping lift, which always seemed to get snagged on the main
  • Symmetrical spinnaker with ETN sock and a wonderful 4 point control system designed/installed by Keys Rigging allows easy adjustment from rear deck Put up the main , fly the spinnaker and go 13 knots
  • additional light air symmetrical spinnaker
  • life lines (2014) we went with the coated Stainless because they are easier to hold onto
  • All other standing/running rigging replaced as recommended by Keys Rigging (2017)

    Auxiliary power:

  • 2 Yanmar 18 hp 2 cylinder (2gm20f) diesel engines with sail drives (sd20),
  • Approximately 100 hours on overhauled port engine, zero hours on Starboard engine. After determining lower portion of both engines to be okay, we had both heads removed and rebuilt.
  • All new seals, gaskets. belts, hoses, salt water pumps, injectors, starboard fresh water pump, heat exchangers well cleaned, port exhaust mixing elbow, lift pumps.....they look and run like new!!We went with rebuilding rather than new because the 2GM20F's are tough little diesels, have a terrific reputation for dependability, are efficient and simple to work on.

    2 new props, new seals and boots on sail drives, new spare prop

  • Dual Racor Fuel Filters
  • entire fuel system "polished"

  • 3000 watt inverter pure sine wave Outback with remote control. Automatically goes from inverter to shore power, multistage battery charger, power conditioner (2014) This is, in our opinion, the best system. It does far to many things to get into here, but one feature we use while in a marina hooked up to shore power is the ability of the unit to switch to an inverter if shore power drops below a certain voltage or frequency, saving the compressor and headaches
