Countdown to Southampton Boat Show 2022: Beneteau Antares 8

The Beneteau Antares 8 has been doing great business as a versatile family companion for over a decade now, but the 2022 model looks to be the sleekest yet…

Accessibility is at the heart of the latest redesign of the Beneteau Antares 8. A new starboard side door makes access to the pontoon much easier.

The wide aft swim platforms sit flush with the deck for easy movement around the cockpit. And the starboard gangway has been widened for better access to the forward sunbathing area.

The mainstay of Bénéteau’s Weekender range, the new boat is also available in two versions: Cruising, which favors user-friendly seats; and fishing, which augments the sport fisherman’s basics of the boat with all the rod holders, workspaces and storage boxes you could want.

Accommodating up to nine passengers, plus a double cabin, a head and shower compartment and all sorts of clever convertibilities built into the furnishings, the new Beneteau Antares 8 looks like a remarkably complete package.
