Hanse 388 Athena

We have made some prestigious additions to our fleet for 2020 and our brand new fresh-out-of-the-box Hanse 388 is one of these yachts. She offers an ultra-modern hull shape and easy sail handling; and we’ve added some upgrades during her build - like her Fast Cruising’ Dacron sails from Elvstrøm, a teak deck and a beautiful cedar wood interior, which, with her numerous windows makes her lighter, brighter and airier downstairs. She sports no less than 19 windows in the deck that light up her upgraded interior and whilst, (as Yachting Monthly put it), she might sound like a Greenhouse, she sails like a yacht and a very good one, too.

She’s an easily managed, very seaworthy yacht with little that will ruffle her progress. Once the sails are set, just guide her finger-light-helm and enjoy the ride. Should you relinquish the helm - which you may find hard to do, such are her delightful sailing qualities - then enjoy the ride in her wide and open cockpit, with easily managed sail controls. We’ve added lots of special extras during her build to make her into the perfect Med-cruiser for alfresco living, sunbathing and sailing. You name it.

More images of this yacht

The 388 is a great sea boat and she makes sailing easy: From her finger light helm - which makes her a delight to sail - to her conservative sail plan, self tacking jib and easily managed controls. If you’re a couple or a family, you’ll love this yacht.

She has a large, open cockpit and full width drop-down swim platform for Med-style living and a nice and bright, upgraded cedar wood interior. Her deck, cockpit and internal space is more fitting of a 40 footer, but so cleverly designed into an easily managed, compact 38 foot hull. If you like great performance and easy handling, you’ll like Athena.

  • 3 sleep cabins; 1 head (WC & shower)
  • Upgraded cedar wood interior

Bareboat and Flexi Flotilla

This yacht is available for Bareboat and Flexi Flotilla. Bareboating suits those with sailing experience who prefer to decide on their own itinerary and the return to the yacht base at the end of the charter.

Flexi Flotilla allows you to dip in and out of our flotilla and enjoy the benefits of sailing in company and plotting your own itinerary. It suits those with experience who appreciate the framework of a flotilla for its lead crew support, the camaraderie and the kids entertainments and socials. There’s no need to book our Flexi option in advance, simply speak to the lead crew on arrival and they will help you plan your Flexi Flotilla week.

Flotilla Sailing

Ocean Elements’ Flotillas are perfect for all sailors: from beginner skippers, to expert seafarers looking to sail in company for a purely relaxing sailing break; or a voyage of discovery as you tick away the miles touring cultural hotspots and idyllic anchorages.

If you follow our flotilla (which promises to be a sociable week) you’ll get to explore the stunning Ionian islands. Let us do the route planning and help you moor up each night before you step ashore to join us for a group meal and some family fun and games or an excursion or two (like our popular paddleboard cruise) to break up the sailing.

Stay & Sail

This yacht is available for a two week Stay Sail in Vassiliki. Combine a relaxing week on the beach with club board catering, fitness classes, kids clubs and all-inclusive activities and watersports tuition on tap; before you head off for a cruise around the islands on our flotilla or for bareboating.

Get qualified to skipper

Why not combine one of our yacht training courses with a flotilla holiday so you can get qualified (in week one) to then skipper your yacht in week two on our flotilla.
