BENETEAU Antares 8 Fishing
The Antares 8 Fishing is far more sporty in style than the Antares 8 Cruising and boasts dedicated equipment for fishers. Its modular cockpit makes movement easier and every detail has been optimised.
The aft bench has been replaced by a fishing station with professional-grade rod holders. In addition to the water circulation live bait well, there are three storage compartments under the deck, one of which can hold a fish box.
A major new feature is the side access gate to starboard, making mooring manoeuvres easier and also making it easier to lift larger catches on board.
The Antares 8 includes all the creature comforts you need for coastal cruising: a kitchenette with refrigerator and a gas or electric hob according to preference. It can also be equipped with air conditioning.
Up to five passengers can spend the night on board, thanks to two double berths; one in the cabin and the other in the wheelhouse. An additional berth can be arranged in the space under the saloon.
IDEAL FOR KEEN FISHERS
The fishing equipment on the Antares 8 Fishing makes it the ideal boat for keen salt water fishers.
A Pleasure to Drive
The Antares 8 has the flared hull design specific to the Antares line, making it extremely stable in all weather conditions. The integrated ergonomic driving station has room for an optional 12” control display. Powered by a 250-HP engine, the Antares 8 can reach a speed of 35 knots.
The wheelhouse hard top, shortened to make casting easier, can house a 12” display for finding fishing spots.
The rod holders are built-in to the freeboards but also into the hard top continuing the roof. An aft searchlight is located on the roof, and a LED projector light faces forward to increase visibility when navigating by night.
The modular saloon with folding benches provides optimal space and makes crew movements easier. Once the removable table is installed and the benches unfolded, the Antares 8 Fishing provides a comfortable saloon in which to enjoy good company.
