Antares Yachts’ head of design, Ted Clements, firmly believes that your boat should protect you.
If the design is successful, you can move between any standing places on board without ever having to negotiate an obstacle course or take any undue risks. Using this philosophy, everything from steering to rigging was designed to protect you. We don’t offer a choice between charter and owner’s version, to do so would undermine the offshore integrity of the hull design. The enclosed cockpit is designed to protect you from the weather, and not just for cocktail parties.
The design of the Antares 44 was conceived with these basic principles in mind – with function never being compromised for fashion.
