ATHENA, is a 44 ft. Spencer 1330, center cockpit – Ketch, Blue Water Sailboat.

Canadian Built in 1978, this is hull No.16 with only 2 owners. It is in excellent Condition and is very well equipped, with a "SAFTEY FIRST" mindset. The insulated double walled hull (eliminates interior moisture) is constructed with super strong Airex. It is equipped with a BRND NEW Beta Marine engine that will take you everywhere the winds won't. Enjoy true "cockpit comfort" under the custom hard dodger, with tinted glass – providing protection from sun, wind & rain! This boat has been set up well for single handed sailing. For the past twenty years, Athena has provided the current owners with a dry, warm and extremely comfortable interior plus an extra margin of safety, while cruising the waters of Puget Sound, Canada and Alaska.
