Antares 42 Powerboat by Bénéteau Philippines
Bénéteau’s Antares series has long been known for its boats’ solid construction, bluewater capability, excellent handling, surprising spaciousness, and excellent value. Drawing from Bénéteau’s long tradition of boatbuilding, this series is true to the brand’s practical heritage, and the Antares 42 is no different. Her design is classic and timeless, but she can definitely surprise and delight even the most seasoned mariners.
This mix of tradition, contemporary engineering, and trademark Bénéteau innovation is why the Antares 42 is one of Bénéteau’s most popular boats in the line. Once you’ve had time at the wheel of this boat—a vessel designed primarily for family cruising—you will immediately understand why the Antares line has earned a solid reputation over the decades for easy handling, safety, and reliability.
The Antares 42 Exterior
Designed by Sarrazin Design, a design firm that has worked on many boats belonging to the Antares range, the Antares 42 features a classic silhouette and harmonious lines that are as timeless as they are beautiful. Her hull is streamlined to ensure not just seaworthiness and passenger comfort, but also fuel efficiency.
The signature Bénéteau Flybridge has also been incorporated into the Antares 42, a feature that is extremely popular among Bénéteau boat owners since it allows for unimpeded 360-degree view of the of the seaside surroundings or the open sea. On this flybridge is a driving station with state-of-the art controls and electronics, as well as a saloon that comfortably seats 4 passengers. The cockpit is likewise spacious and deep—a comfort to those who want their journeys to be safe and secure. Finally, sun chasers will also love how the flybridge easily transforms to a lounge area that is just perfect for sunbathing.
The Antares 42 Interior
The Antares 42 also offers plenty of indoor space for friends and family, easily accommodating intimate gatherings for weekend adventures and more. On the main deck, the powerboat delights with her beautiful mahogany wood details, which can come in either warm or high gloss finish. Likewise, prospective owners of the boat have the option of choosing from a range of fabric and leather upholstery options. Clearly, the Antares 42 is practical and seaworthy, but it is also a vessel that allows the owner’s personality to shine.
Also on the main deck, the boat’s wheelhouse pleases with beautiful views of the ocean and its bright and peaceful atmosphere. Here, there is another driving station with an adjustable twin seat and an integrated bolster function. As for the rest of the main deck, there are also creature comforts that make day-long excursions out in the sea extremely comfortable. These include a large U-shaped saloon with a convertible table, as well as an L-shaped galley with an oven, a 2 burner gas hob setup, and a 140-liter refrigeration unit.
The array of homely amenities continue down in the lower deck, where a surprisingly spacious owner’s cabin is equipped with a 1.85m x 2.10m central bed, dressing table, storage drawers, and a hanging locker. There is also a space for guests, which is furnished with 2 ordinary beds that can expand to a 1.60m x2.0m double bed. Finally, there is also a bathroom that straddles both cabins, allowing you to enjoy refreshing showers after a sweltering day out in the sun.
All of these make the layout of the Antares 42 ideal for a family of 4 to 6 members. If even more space is needed, the saloon behind the lower driving station can be quickly converted into an extra berth.
