The camera accompanies the creation by the Royal Huisman Shipyard of the three-masted schooner Athena through all stages of her building to sea-trials and her first trip to the Med. At ninety meters overall, displacement  more than 1000 metric tons and carrying nearly 2500 square meters of sail. Athena possesses qualities of design, naval architecture, engineering and craftsmanship that are unsurpassed in the annals of yachting, even in an age dominated by superlatives.

Her designers Peter Beeldsnijder and Gerald Dijkstra and the shipyards many gifted professionals continue in their „tradition“ of altering the standard of yacht building to what is without doubt the finest art of cultural values.
