EXTERIOR DESIGN

 The Antares 8 has a new flared-out hull that delivers wonderful driving sensations, while boasting excellent seakeeping. The dynamic V design of the cap clearly announces the boat’s stunning aesthetic design. Its clever deck plan offers three different possible cockpit seat layouts.

INTERIOR DESIGN

Unique on a boat this size, the Antares 8’s habitability sets it apart from other motor cruisers in this category. The wheelhouse is accessed by a large sliding glass door, sheltering a well-equipped modular living space. There is a real double cabin below the wheelhouse at the bow of the boat, with storage and a shower en suite, so you can stay on board for a few days. With walnut stained woodwork, the boat offers a very contemporary atmosphere.

LOTS TO OFFER FOR HER SIZE

Designed to make living on board a real pleasure, the Antares’ exterior and interior fittings make coastal cruising feel like a long-distance cruise.

POWEr

Areal cabin
