The beautiful #sailing   #yacht   #Athena  has recently received some of +Marine Hydraulic Solutions undivided attention. Her crane #hydraulic  hoses have been replaced and also the servicing of the jacking equipment has taken place. This stunning #superyacht ,  which was launched in 2004 and won the #ShowBoatsInternationalAward  for the Best Sailing Yacht over 40 metres in that same year, has now headed across to the Caribbean where she will start her season.
