The elegant design of the full cockpit enclosure is integrated into the hardtop and deck, creating a protected helm position from all weather conditions. The enclosure is standard on the Antares 44 GS.
Handling Your Mainsail
Antares makes handling your mainsail more efficient and easier to manage than by using the stack packs typically found on production catamarans. You have the option to purchase Selden’s push button electric furling mainsail. The in-mast furling mainsail is vertically battened.
The heavy duty SuperTramp material supplied by Bainbridge, is made from vinyl-dipped polyester that is both mildew and UV resistant. The trampoline is mounted on tracks that run all the way around the frame with a lace section down the center and front.
The bowsprit on the Antares 44 GS supports the furling Screecher and puts the sail in better air by pushing it forward and away from the mainsail – giving you better downwind performance.
The Antares bridle system is a tidy and efficient way to bridle your boat while at anchor. The integrated bridle system is bolted onto the bow of each hull and creates a lower angle of pull and a more secure hold while at anchor. Comes standard on the Antares 44 GS.
The ten large opening ports – 8 are 24-inches wide – on the Antares 44 GS, give you plenty of ventilation, even on a rainy day. The ports, combined with the standard 8 overhead hatches fitted with Oceanair mosquito screens, keep the interior spaces light and airy.
