A stylish day-boat with a unique concept of one Air-Step® hull for a choice of two different deck plans, the Flyer is a distillation of technology. The SPACEdeck and SUNdeck , with spacious models between 5 and 9 metres, are undoubtedly an achievement in terms of design. Let the fun begin !

From 5 to 9 meters

Antares Outboard


A classic pilothouse boat for short cruises that will never go out of fashion. These fisher cruisers are safe and highly seaworthy thanks to a flared hull, and they enjoy the performance you only get from an outboard engine. The four outboard Antares are well-known for their cosy interiors and level of equipment, making them a joy to own and a best seller range. 

From 5 to 9 meters


The sea is your playground. Seaworthy, safe and powerful, the Barracuda is a sport fisher full of character. The four outboarders of this range have a cleverly designed deck plan. The quantity and quality of their fishing equipment, and the comfort they offer on board, make them perfect for the demanding owner. Most definitely a winning range ! 

From 6 to 9 meters

Antares Inboard


A boat that brings people together – reassuring and quintessential. From the cockpit to the wheelhouse, the living space on board an Antares is always surprising. The motor cruiser range has won recognition for the shape of its hulls that withstand the test of time and make safe passage through all seas. 

From 8 to 14 meters

Gran Turismo

Streamlined and sporty, the Gran Turismo offers great sensations. Open to the sea and yet well-protected, the range’s five sport cruisers boast technological features uniting the joy of cruising and exceptional performance. The Gran Turismo looks great, has quality fittings and attractive trims. In a nutshell she is elegant and positively trendy! 

From 10 to 16 meters
