Click on image to enlarge

Year: 1989
Price: 249000
Located in San Diego, CA
Hull Material: Fiberglass
Engine/Fuel Type: Twin diesel

“ATHENA” The 55’ was by far the best looking of the Californian series. In 2018/2019 the owner had extensive work performed by authorized Caterpillar Techs - The starboard main was pulled and a new long-block was installed and the Port Main was overhauled in place. There is extensive documentation to support all the work performed. The next owner of this well-founded great Southern Californian Cruiser should enjoy years of cruising with the knowledge that mechanically this boat is as sound and ready to go as any pre-owned vessel could be. She also has the advantage of being equipped with some very desirable features: Air-Conditioning throughout, Wesmar hydraulic stabilizers, 24 volt Wesmar Bow Thruster, Washer/Dryer, Dinghy with Hydraulic Davit.
