Boat Details

Powered by a Suzuki DF200 APX outboard.  Agile, powerful and very habitable, the Antares 8 oozes character. The ideal boat for exploring new shores, she is wonderful for taking a break for a few days, confident that you are completely safe.

Manufacturer Provided Description

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.  Focussing on the pleasure of living on board, the Antares has a slatted natural colour solid wood aft swim platform (on option).
