    We normally don't cover sailing yachts, but ATHENA is one of the most spectacular builds of ALL time. She is truly a magnificent yacht.

    I'm not sure how much editorial we're going to do on this because there are a massive number of pictures. I've already spent 6 hours formatting over 100 images of ATHENA. Before I start the upload, I'm wondering...

    Who wants to see ATHENA?

    You should! It's hard to find decent coverage of the higher-end sailers... stuff like Alloy, Perinni, Wally, etc... are all amazing builds. Getting to see an in-depth photo-series of that Wally 143 (under construction) would be absolutely "wow!" :D

    ANY sailboat with at least 2 sticks is a "yacht" in my book :) :) :)

    I am probably the only one, but I prefer photocoverage to be on just one page. I would rather make a new thread for each page if there are more pictures of interest and name them after content, like Athena Exterior/Decks, Athena Owner/Guest areas, Athena Bridge/crew areas/ engineroom. Or along those lines to facilitate going back for a certain picture...

    Maybe creates too many threads, but certainly easier to navigate. Another trick would be to have a content index posted first?

    And Yes, I love to see more of Athena!

    So world's biggest Mirabella V is not a contender then ? :D

    In my opinion any sail-yacht offering space and luxury comparable to a 100ft'r or more should be considered. The technical innovation and crative design-idea's required on sailing-yachts is much higher then on a motor-yacht in order to offer similar or comparable levels of space and luxury.

    Show us those pictures, you absoultely have my vote in favor..

    Oh, my old eyes missed that this place is named motoryachtforums.com. :)

    Yes, I'd like to see Athena.

    So being able to land a heli on Tiara doesn't qualify her? ;)

    But all you had to do was cut a hole in the deck, sit in the hole, call it a sunfish and you ruled the seas. :D

    OK... I've got the pics done. Seems like it took 12 hours. I'll get started on the editorial tomorrow. Problem is... editorial for 75 pictures would be a book! Hopefully the old addage "a picture is worth a thousand words" will apply. ;)

    I personally would like to see more sailing yachts, after all acording to the Oxford dictonary a yacht is a vessel used for pleasure.

    OK... I've finished about 7 pages of editorial. Still, I've got a lot more to do. 7 pages hardly covers 70 pictures! I kind of doubt Huisman will ever become a site supporter, so ... one of you guys owes me a drink at FLIBS! :D

    Of the 200+ pictures supplied, I widdled Athena down to 70 pictures. Today, I found out that 10 of them are not owned by Royal Huisman and if we use them, it will be costly. So... a few detail shots will be missing. :(

    Still, we've got nearly 60 excellent pictures, many of them never published before. A few less pics is actually good... it reduces the amount of editorial! ;)

    Need a couple more days on this. Hang in there... :)

    Maybe I should set up a link that only our regular members can see. Who knows, maybe THAT will motivate a few lurkers to join in! :D
