The Antares 44e builds on the legacy of the world’s best liveaboard with enhancements to make the Antares even more liveable. We expanded the seating area in the salon without compromising any of the storage space necessary for the needs of a liveaboard cruiser.
The Antares 44e has plenty of storage below the seating area. The new interior layout incorporates additional forward facing seating and storage.Pull-out desk is ideal for a work station or as an extra table. Tip-out cupboard for storage and washing machine access. Additional storage is ideal for safely stowing bottles. Some of the additional storage below includes a set of two drawers integrated beneath the bench seat. The port forward guest head has a separate, spacious shower.
