Development : BENETEAU
DESIGNER : Sarrazin Design


European Powerboat of the Year 2024 - Nominated

Exterior design

With a stylishly modern look, the Antares 12 underlines the profile and mindset that have made the line so successful for the last 45 years. The sheer line and hull windows create an elegant look outside and bring ample natural light inside. The iconic hard top profile blends well with the rest of the boat and is the foundation for the large flybridge.

The boat has three outdoor lounge areas: the cockpit, the forward sun pad, and a vast flybridge with a corner sofa and a fully fitted outdoor galley cabinet.

Interior Design

The Antares 12 stands out for the quality of its materials and trims, not to mention its stylish, generous interior spaces. The wheelhouse provides a central living space with a panoramic view of the ocean.

The fully fitted galley allows you to have free rein with your culinary creativity. The lounge with facing seats is a great place to enjoy good company. The indirect lighting, elegant upholstery, and lacquered furniture create a peaceful atmosphere, where you can relax and enjoy the view.

Everyone’s privacy is maintained aboard: the owner cabin is spacious and bright, and has its own ensuite bathroom, as does the VIP guest cabin. A modular third cabin can be used as single or double berth, or easily become the extra storage space any owner needs. With the wheelhouse’s convertible salon, the boat can accommodate up to eight people for a pleasant night on board. 

Embodying the Antares Style

Technology Serving Comfort and Pleasure

Powered by three Mercury 300 Verados, with an integrated joystick, the Antares 12 has all the power and agility you need on the water. Exceptional visibility from either helm and an optional Seakeeper gyro give you the confidence to safely operate the boat in most weather conditions. For added peace of mind, the industry leading SEANAPPS system keeps you connected to your boat wherever you might be.

Living in Harmony Aboard

Opening the three-leaf cockpit door transforms the salon and cockpit into an open space. Blending the cockpit into the wheelhouse lounge creates great flow from the aft of the Antares 12 forward. The safe walkways and the transom behind the engines makes for easy movement aboard.


Sunny Getaways and the Joy of Boating

Snorkelling and paddle board fans will love the side platform extending the cockpit that allows easy access into and out of the water.

Dayboating As Well

The Antares 12 is also a great day boat for fun trips with friends or comfortable getaways with the family. The boat has three outdoor lounge areas: the aft cockpit protected by the hardtop, the forward sun pad with adjustable backrest, and the vast flybridge with a corner sofa and a fully fitted outdoor galley cabinet. All have ample sun protection as well.

Available in 2 Hull Colours
