The Antares 8 is a multi-programme motor cruiser for day outings, fishing trips, and cruising with the family. Living on board is sheer pleasure as she has a large saloon in the wheelhouse with a panoramic view. Extremely well-designed, she has clever modular fittings to make life on board much simpler. Designed by Sarrazin Design, in collaboration with Beneteau Powerboats, the Antares 8 has a semi-displacement hull with a classic timeless profile. The deck plan offers a large cockpit saloon for 4 people. This can be converted into a sun-lounger as well as a semi-open forward pulpit. Focusing on the pleasure of living on board, the Antares has a slatted natural colour solid wood aft swim platform (on option).
With an extensive view of the sea, the wheelhouse saloon can be converted in to a double berth, designed for life on board on a cruise. The fitted galley faces the saloon. The fore cabin has a king-size bed, a hanging locker and an adjoining bathroom. The comfort is surprising for a boat of this size. On board the Antares 8, the walnut wood was chosen for its bright modernity and matches the beige shades of upholstery, creating a cosy and contemporary atmosphere.
   
FLOOR PLAN  

Smallest of the Antares inboard range, the fittings and modularity of this 8-metre motor cruiser is full of surprises. The Antares 8 saloon is bright and easily adapted. It can be set up with facing seats and be converted into a double berth (2 m x 1.20 m). It has a co-pilot seat to share the pleasure of driving. A roof hatch optimizes ventilation. The Antares 8 has a small fitted galley: stainless steel sink, laminated worktop, 2 burner gas cooktop, drawer for storage, and a 42 L icebox (refrigerated on option). The spacious cockpit (2.40 m x 1.85 m / 7'10" x 6'1") has a saloon seating 4 people. This can be converted into a sun-lounger. It has a large locker for stowage.
