The M/C Athala II is an outstanding catamaran that combines adventure with comfort. The Athala II can accommodate 16 passengers in 8 spacious fully air-conditioned cabins. There are four cabins on the Upper Deck, which have interconnecting doors, and four cabins on the Main Deck with private balconies. In addition to an indoor dining room and lounge, the Athala II provides ample outdoor space, including a large sun deck, an open-air bar and dining area where you can take in the islands’ spectacular scenery. On board, the atmosphere is relaxed, intimate and friendly. Cabins are well-appointed, meals delicious, and the service reminiscent of a private yacht.
