The Antares 8 from French builder Beneteau’s Antares inboard range has a hull designed to be safe in all sea conditions. This boat is designed for fishing, day trips, family cruising and overnight trips. At 8.36 metres, the Antares 8 is the smallest of the Antares range and offers a huge amount of comfort for a boat of this size. The petite galley has everything you need for a day on the water with a sink, an ice box – or optional refrigetor – for keeping drinks and snacks cool, and a two burner stove for cooking. The Antares 8 is highly flexible and full of surprises. There is a king-size bed forward with a closet and adjacent bathroom. The interior can be had in three different setups, one with a forward-facing bench so guests can enjoy the experience of sitting alongside the driver. Another setup sees the seating switch to face the dining table, and yet another sees this space convert and become a double berth, so in total the Antares 8 can sleep four guests. Walnut wood blends with shades of beige for a bright, modern and cosy interior, and large windows lend ample light inside. The cockpit seating for four and a storage locker for stowing fishing gear or water toys.
