Beneteau’s Antares 11 is the new 11-metre flagship of the French giant’s Beneteau. After the Flyer 11, another outboard flagship that was born as a classic family weekend boat.
Beneteau’s decades of experience in designing and building this type of boat has been enriched by the collaboration between the shipyard and Sarrazin Design.
This family cruiser is reassuringly reliable. Her well protected hull offers comfort and pleasure at sea. Movement on board is made easier by a flush deck between the cockpit and the wheelhouse. It is also safe thanks to the height of the free boards and free-flowing due to a full-width starboard walkway. The new Antares has twin outboard engines (2 x 300 hp maximum engine power) to guarantee performance and comfort.
The space, comfort and quality of life are illustrated by the size and luxury of the two cabins and the shower room. Located at the bow, the double master cabin has a central island bed, lots of storage, large profiled windows on each side, and an en-suite shower room, placing an emphasis on elegance, with Alpi hazelnut wood bulkheads, skilfully combined with the heather grey fabric of the lining.
With opening windows on each side, it is bright, well ventilated with a wonderful view, and has a double bed together with a single berth to starboard. If you count two passengers sleeping in the convertible saloon, the Antares11 can accommodate up to 7 people in excellent conditions.
With innovative solutions, smart modular design and a manifest emphasis on a wide variety of leisure activities, the Antares 11 is much more than a typical weekender. It is a real family cruiser, designed to make the most of the pleasures of the sea – North or South, offshore or at anchor. The sun pad on the fore-deck is ideal for unwinding and is protected from harsh rays by a Bimini top. As for the large aft cockpit, it is completely sheltered by the wheelhouse overhang, ideal for cooler climates. As seen on yachts, the starboard swim platform increases the size of the cockpit considerably, creating a wonderful sea-view terrace. What could be better to take a dip?
A modular cockpit is a social cockpit and, here, the L-shaped bench can be converted to a sunbathing space with the greatest of ease. The seating connects almost seamlessly to the sofa in the lounge area inside, creating a vast relaxation space. With a convertible saloon, galley, and ergonomic driving station, nothing is missing inside the large wheelhouse. To top it all, huge windows provide a very pleasant all-around view. Indoor light is enhanced by the four glazed roof windows, two of which are hatches
