The new flagship of the Antares line is faithful to the identity and history of its predecessors. The Antares 12 makes a leap in terms of equipment, on-board comfort, feeling of space and refinement.

The Antares 12 is also a great dayboat for fun trips with friends or comfortable getaways with the family. The boat has three outdoor lounge areas: the aft cockpit protected by a long hardtop characteristic of the line, the forward sunpad with an adjustable backrest and a vast flybridge with a corner sofa and a fully fitted outdoor galley cabinet. Each area provides ample seating and storage to give everyone onboard a place to enjoy the surroundings underway or at anchor.

The new model stands out for the extra care taken with the materials’ quality and generous and stylish interior spaces. Thanks to ample windows, the wheelhouse is a central living space with a panoramic view. The fully fitted galley allows you to give free rein to your culinary creativity.

Blending the cockpit into the wheelhouse lounge creates great flow from the aft of the Antares 12 forward. Easy movement on board is one of this model great strengths. Wide walkways and circulation space allow for easy and safe access forward to the large sunpad and makes docking easy.
