Fountaine Pajot Athena 38
Tax Paid, Australia
Gold Coast, AU
“Catacaos” is a proven ocean cruiser and an excellent bay or coastal sailer. She is roomy and comfortable and easy to handle.
Her twin engines provide ample power under motoring conditions and yet are extremely economic to run. There is an excellent standard of fitment of integrated electronics, solar and wind generation and even a water maker (preserved).
The simple, but effective, sail rig is easily managed with roller furling on the headsail and lazy jacks and bag for the main. A choice of spinnakers provides further power when running downwind.
A bimini over the cockpit provides great sun (and rain) protection to the crew and the helming position. Full cockpit covers, including a transparent windscreen option, provide good protection to the cockpit area during an overnight mooring or when the boat is not in use.
Four double cabins and two bathrooms enable a good complement of people to enjoy the voyage and the galley up in the saloon area ensures that the cook is not separated from the group and that meals, while underway, are readily accessible. The BBQ on the backrail complements the cooking options.
