About this Yacht
The Antares 9 is an outboard-powered express cruiser from French boatbuilder Beneteau designed to be a weekender for a couple with family or friends. Twin Mercury outboard power lends peppy performance to the Airstep hull, along with an available package of engine management features. A side door by the helm aids single-handed operation.
Beneteau seems to understand that all boaters like the features that make their boats easier to use and enjoy. Ideas like a sliding cockpit seat that makes the most of the deck space underway, yet gets out the way when it’s time to tilt the outboards out of the water.
- A helm-station side door lends the feel of a cruising boat, with easy access to the side deck with its spring line cleat and the bow for anchoring duties, not to mention adding excellent airflow to the salon.
- A wide-opening salon door lets the owner integrate the cockpit with the salon in a space that allows guests to enjoy all social areas seamlessly.
- Large salon windows and a single-piece windshield offer excellent views as the world cruises by, and there’s a slide-open panel in the portside window to add to the natural ventilation in conjunction with an sunroof hatch.
- A sliding seat in the cockpit makes it easier to get at the outboards for preflight checks and the post-cruise tilt to get the lower units completely out of the water, yet still lets an owner make the most of cockpit space.
