The first Flybridge in the Antares range!
From this year onwards, all Antares models over 9 metres will have their length in feet included as part of their model name. And that's the case with this new launch, which replaces and upgrades the 9 Series with 3 Flybridge/Hard Top versions. As the first Flybridge in the range, it is designed primarily for cruising, and retains all the excellent seakeeping qualities on which the Antares reputation has been built.
1. Outside: modern, functional design
Sarrazin Design is famous for sleek elegance of line, and their style is unmistakable in this Antares 30. Its grey-tinted glass makes a special contribution to this sophisticatedly-modern design. The hull is the work of the Beneteau design team, and is available in single-engine configuration only.
There are three versions to choose from:
- Without flybridge: the Antares 30 S* version with two opening hard top panels
- With flybridge, but without helm station: large sunbathing area and cockpit table on the flybridge
- With flybridge and helm station convertible to a sunbathing platform
These 3 options make the Antares 30 a truly multipurpose boat.
There is a capacious cockpit locker beneath the large cockpit and its (optional) bench seat.
The convenient transom skirt and ladder make for easy access to the water and the quayside.
The front deck offers a very comfortable sunbathing platform (optional).
The flybridge layout is cleverly functional, with a comfortable saloon arranged around the table and double driving seats, which convert into a sunbathing platform. The double control panel (optional) is designed to receive Raymarine C90W electronics. Aft is the radar arch with integrated antennas.
2. Inside: space and light
The wheelhouse interior is accessed via a 3-panel sliding glass door that creates a perfect feeling of space.
The amount of living space is unrivalled by any other boat of this size. The wheelhouse is large and bright for all-round vision at sea.
The saloon converts to accommodate a double berth to port, whilst the compact, fully-equipped galley (gas oven, 65-litre fridge and microwave position) is to starboard. Moving further forward, the ultra-modern helm station features a bolster seat and Carbon Fibre-look instrument panel.
Another major feature for a boat of this size is the comfortable forward-facing co-driver seat forward of the U-shaped saloon.
Going below takes you to the cabins. To port, the guest cabin offers two bunk berths and storage space. Right opposite, the washroom is very well equipped with marine WC (and 88-litre rigid holding tank), washbasin, shower and hull port for ventilation.
The owner's bowcabin offers a central bed measuring 1.98 x 1.40 metres mounted on struts to provide maximum storage space and access.
