GREAT boat, probably one of the best sailing boats in its size. Spencer 1330's are solid boats, and many of them have done extensive offshore voyaging where they are respected for a very comfortable motion, roomy center cockpit, good livability, with a large engine "room", and she sails like a dream. . .
John Brandlmayr and Spencer Yachts were ahead of their time, in many construction details.
Large fiberglass box structures distribute chainplate loads, and check out the full hard dodger over the center cockpit - that's hard to beat in the PNW!
Re-powered in 2016, lightly used and updated since, Athena is the kind of comfortable cruising boat many are looking for! Starting at the bow, is the large #33 Rocna anchor on a double bow roller. The large flush foredeck, with secure dynema life lifelines and netting, sports a big Maxwell 2200 windlass on a pad with multiple controls. A clever deck storage locker at the base of the mast is perfect for a rolled-up dinghy on passage. Look at the size of the windows on the large hard dodger covering the center cockpit. Inside is an array of instruments and compass out of the way, above the companionway entrance. The binnacle houses the Beta Marin Diesel controls, so you don’t have to stand on your head to see the gauges. It has the Garmin chart plotter w/ radar display navpod just forward the wheel. There’s a below decks Garmin Hydraulic Autopilot(2020). Standing and running rigging replaced in 2019, and the Beta 60 has less than 350 hours.
Athena has a classic layout, a versatile and comfortable salon, full galley to port at the base of the companionway, with a dining/chart table to starboard. Forward are two comfortable settees and a large table in the main salon. There is impressive storage everywhere, an appreciated Brandlmayr theme, with well designed nooks and crannies everywhere. No one builds details like this anymore, and there is no exterior teak!
The exterior and interior of Athena is in very nice condition. Outfitted for children, v-berth in this boat has high lee-cloth dividers. There is a good hanging locker close to this berth and additional storage in the cabin. The passage to the aft cabin has good headroom, with incredible storage all along the hull in that passageway.
The aft cabin, also accessible from the cockpit through its own companionway is pretty nice. While not a "centerline queen", berth is generous and comfortable with the custom natural rubber cushions. Both of the heads in this boat are large enough to be comfortable, and have plenty of storage. Oh did I say that already? The forward head is ready for a rebuild, stripped for another composting head, or an offshore only toilet. Engine access, to an engine room with work-bench and vise, is through a door in the aft cabin, and then through a door under the companionway steps.
"Good hull, good rig, good engine, good galley, good god Molly, buy the boat!"
