The new Beneteau Antares 27 is an innovative and impressive new family cruiser with tremendous performance, but a surprisingly reasonable price tag.
The CY team was in Newport to see the new Antares line at 21, 23 and 27 feet. The builder also introduced a new Oceanis 46.1 and they presented their 51.1.
For the first time in the US, Beneteau is bringing its historic range: Antares. The Antares 21, 23 and 27 outboards are the new generation of coastal cruising boats. Designed entirely by the Beneteau design team, the Antares 21, 23 and 27 reinforce the brand’s specialized expertise in the pocket cruise market, ingeniously combining tradition and innovation.
