The Hoek Design team is very proud to announce that the 208ft schooner ‘Athos’ did win the prestigious “Best Refitted Sailing Yacht” Award at the World Superyacht Awards 2023.
The 208ft Hoek Design Schooner ‘Athos’ has undergone an extensive refit at the Huisfit facilities of Royal Huisman in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The refit included a 1.25 m. extension to the stern and involved the careful reconstruction of the yacht’s aft deck layout and structure. The additional length has allowed for a completely reconfigured aft deck. The main cockpit has been redesigned to allow for a significantly larger dining table and improved seating.
The main deckhouse layout has undergone significant changes to the layout and styling, and more forward a new, third deckhouse has been constructed in way of the former companionway.
On the lower deck a lot of improvements have been made, in layout as well as in styling. The owner’s cabin and one guest cabin layout have been redesigned. The galley has been refitted and a separation between the galley and main salon has been incorporated.
To improve the performance, Athos has received new booms, new sails and new carbon rigging, new navigation etc.
Congrats to the owner, yard and all involved in the project and thanks for the great collaboration!
