Antares 8 Fishing Version

Call for Price

The Antares 8 Fishing boasts a sleek sporty design and delivers new features that will be popular with anyone who loves sea activities, particularly fishing; with the characteristic style and elegance of this iconic line and real comfort.

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The aft bench has been replaced by a fishing station with professional-grade rod holders.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 hob as well as diesel heat. 

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. 

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.
