Beneteau debuted the new flagship of the Antares fleet this week at FLIBS 2020 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With a length overall of 36’7” and a beam of 11’6” the new Antares 11 takes the lead in the builder’s outboard family cruiser category.

This quintessential family cruising powerboat focuses on safety, comfort, innovation and space utilization. She can be used for many different types of boating and offers a wide range of fun and leisure activities. She is the perfect illustration of a family cruiser - seaworthy and versatile with a contemporary design that can be used for a wide variety of recreational leisurely boating activities and styles.

The Antares 11 is a result of a new collaboration between Beneteau and Sarrazin Design. Her spirited modern silhouette is emphasized by vast areas of glazing in the wheelhouse and there are a lot of smart modular solutions throughout to make life onboard this yacht very pleasant for all her passengers.

The boat’s double master cabin has an en-suite shower room and the aft cabin is a full beam layout with three berths. The Antares 11 has a convertible saloon and can accommodate up to 7 people in excellent conditions. Inside the wheelhouse there is an all-around view providing great visibility for all aboard. Other features include an aft sun bench, side swim platform creating a sea-view terrace and a flush deck connecting nearly seamlessly with the cockpit and the wheelhouse.

Overall, ample light and cruising comfort characterize this large weekender. She can be powered with up to twin 300-horsepower outboard engines and boasts some exceptional performance numbers.

Owners can choose between a sliding roof with cover or a hard top with optional solar panels (which is a really cool option).
