295ft Sailing Vessel "ATHENA"

It's not everyday that you see a 300ft modern schooner pull into Charleston Harbor, but last week sailing yacht "Athena" docked at the City Marina and has been the talk of the town.

Athena is a clipper-bowed three masted gaff rigged schooner built by Royal Huismanin 2004 for Internet entrepreneur James H. Clark. Clark purchased a 47.4 meter sloop, Hyperion, from Royal Huisman in 1998. As Hyperion was nearing completion, Clark began to consider the possibilities of a larger yacht, which could include a theater, library, more guest space and a more capable galley, taking inspiration from the 1920s Krupp built motor yacht "Talitha".
