2 BENETEAU outboard powerboats finalists in Boat of the Year

The Antares 11 and the Flyer 9 have both been shortlisted by the judges and will compete in the election of the Motorboat of the Year in France and the European Power Boat of the Year (EPOTY) internationally.

Considering their popularity, it is not very surprising to find these two new BENETEAU boats ranked among the finalists by the readers of MOTEUR BOAT. Back in September, 15 MOTEUR BOAT magazine readers took part in the trials in Hyères in the Var. The verdict will be known in December 2020.

The Flyer 9 and Antares 11 have also been selected by the nautical experts of the 2021 European Power Boat of the Year’s panel of judges.

The Flyer 9 was nominated in the “up to 10 metres” category

The Flyer 9 SUNdeck is very comfortable, functional and ergonomic and promises some great sea trips, with the possibility of sleeping overnight on board. As for the Flyer 9 SPACEdeck, it is remarkably modular and can be rearranged to suit any day boating programme: water sports, beach hopping and relaxation and even seawater fishing.

The Antares 11 has been nominated in the “up to 14 metres” category

The flagship of the Antares range epitomizes the family cruiser. This modern stylish powerboat focuses on space, comfort and safety. It is well fitted out and has up to 7 berths.
