Antares 780

The Beneteau Antares 780 is part of one of the most famous series of motorboats from the La Rochelle shipyard.

This line has many uses and is divided into two main streams, and this 7.80 is part of the “outboard” category. The Sarrazin design studio was asked to design the layout of this model, which would later replace the 7.50 in the line. The result is a boat that has the comfort and sportiness of a fishing boat, the elegance of a cruising model and the high performance typical of the Benetau brand.



Excellent sailing performance in Beneteau Antares 780 powerboat

Made of fiberglass, the Antares 780 boat is reinforced with polyester resins and the hull is designed as a semi-planing, with a V-shaped section at the bow, giving excellent sailing performance even in strong waves.

The result in Antares cabin cruiser boat is a dynamic cruising yacht with lines running down the length of the boat, and the hull gives the impression of movement even when moored. Compared to the 7.50 model, the interior has been changed, with the addition of a single-block windscreen (no longer split), sliding multi-panel glass entry doors for access to the deck area.

In the bow area is the anchor equipment compartment, which is equipped with an electric winch for dropping the anchor and raising it when the vessel sails.

The salon space in 780 boat extends from the transom to the central command station and is quite spacious. Aft, to port, is a C-shaped seating area formed by a series of cushioned storage compartments and complemented by a table that can be removed to convert – by incorporating an optional top – a sofa into a comfortable sunbathing area. Here the gables – except for the middle one, which folds down to accommodate the engine – are removable and can be removed to increase deck space.

The gangways in Antares motorboat are not very wide, but they are fitted with practical handrails that are quite high, making the passage from stern to bow quiet and safe.

A small passageway in Antares 780 on the starboard side leads to the interior area, which is entered through a glass door. On the port side is the corner saloon, with a generous L-shaped cushioned bench and a wooden table that was designed to be removable to enlarge the sofa area and convert it into a double berth.

Antares perfect boat to fishing or cruising with friends

On the starboard side in Antares 780 is the kitchenette, equipped with a sink and wall storage. Directly forward of the galley is a command station with steering wheel and dashboard, complemented by a beautiful swivel chair.

Between the corner in the saloon and the command station is the entrance to the sleeping area, consisting of a double bedroom lit by a skylight, a closet and a toilet.

The Beneteau Antares 7.80 cabin cruiser is the perfect boat to spend a quiet day fishing or cruising with friends.
