The Antares 44GS is a boat that has evolved year after year as the builders, in Argentina, and their owners compare notes and innovate new solutions to the real-world issues that blue water sailors deal with. The 44GS is a pure liveaboard, blue water cat that takes an extremely practical approach to just about every aspect of the boat’s design, build and systems.
The cored hulls and deck are engineered to be as strong and as light as possible to avoid any delamination after a sudden impact. The tall, double headsail sloop rig, with lines and sheets running back to the raised helm in the cockpit, are easy for a single watchkeeper to manage without leaving the cockpit. The cockpit is very secure and comfortable and even in a large seaway you do not feel exposed to the elements. With the hard top and side curtains, this is a four-season cockpit for most sailors.
The master stateroom takes up the starboard hull and has a large double berth aft, a wardrobe and storage area amidship and a huge head and shower forward. The galley is amidships in the starboard hull in what is a called a “galley down” configuration. The guests’ cabins are forward and aft of the galley. The saloon, with its dinette and large chart table, has great visibility. The interior is finished in traditional varnished teak with teak and holly soles or floorboards and high-quality hardware and fixtures. You feel like you are aboard a proper yacht built with old-school values when you climb aboard the Antares 44GS and you know that this is a couple’s cruising boat that will take them anywhere. https://liveantares.com/
