Peter and Sally aboard s/v MillyCOMING HOME ABOARD ANTARES S/V CALYPSO

Maite revisits Miami

This year, we had an opportunity to show Ed and Maite's Antares s/v Calypso at the Miami boat show. What made this a particularly special year, was spending time with Maite who grew up in Miami as a child.

All aboard for shoreListening to her talk about Miami then and now made for a richer experience for all of us. And it was great to see Maite light up as she showed off her new home to all her friends who dropped by. We accompanied Ed and Maite after the show to their anchorage at Bill Baggs Cape State Park and took a few shots of Calypso under sail. Enjoy!

ANTARES UNIVERSITY - LEARNING TO LIVE ABOARD IN THE BAHAMAS

Each year we hold our Antares University program at a different location - this year we were fortunate to be in what is arguably the liveaboard Mecca for cruisers - George Town, Bahamas.

While we still spent lots of time reviewing the electrical and mechanical systems, learning about boat handling, docking and sailing, everyone also got a chance to immerse themselves in the liveaboard lifestyle! Link here for more photos from the Antares University program.

Antares 44i: Best Boat for Globe Girdling?

There is no shortage of advice on how to choose the right offshore boat. But a recent article published in Cruising World really resonated with us. Jimmy Cornell has put together a concise check list of criteria for consideration when buying a circumnavigation class boat.

What struck us most was how the article reads like a check list of all the design elements that went into building the Antares 44i catamaran. We’ve isolated a few key points from Cornell’s article that we feel exemplify our design priorities at Antares Yachts.
