Like new condition, with only 80 hours on the 225 hp Mercury outboard. Great boat for Puget Sound and the surrounding lakes. The Antares 8 runs anywhere from 21 to 32 kts, and is super-efficient for cruising, yielding close to 2 nm/gal at cruise speeds, and nearly 4 nm/gal (sometimes higher) at displacement speeds. Includes a Zipwake trim tab system which automatically keeps the boat level at all times for an easy and comfortable ride.

Fully glass enclosed wheelhouse provides year-round enjoyment. Port and starboard sliding windows, huge glass sliding roof, and dual aft sliding doors, all open in the summer for full air flow. Bow thruster, dual wipers, windlass/anchor, diesel heating for the cold winters, and water heater. 110V outlets in cabin when on shore power.

Hull was bottom painted in 2023 and is therefore in great condition. Boat is fitted with a Mercury 15 hp Kicker Motor for trolling or backup purposes, and is tied in to the boat's fuel tank. Includes electric tilt and electric start, and has maybe 2 hrs use. Both engines freshwater flushed after each and every use.

Reason for selling is we decided to move into a larger boat for longer duration voyages.

Dealers with interested clients are free to reach out to discuss further.

Manufacturer's Description:

Agile, powerful and very habitable, the Antares 8 oozes character. The ideal boat for exploring new shores, she is wonderful for taking a break for a few days, confident that you are completely safe.

Exterior Design
The Antares 8 has a new flared-out hull that delivers wonderful driving sensations, while boasting excellent seakeeping. The dynamic V design of the cap clearly announces the boat’s stunning aesthetic design. Its clever deck plan offers three different possible cockpit seat layouts.

Interior Design
Unique on a boat this size, the Antares 8’s habitability sets it apart from other motor cruisers in this category. The wheelhouse is accessed by a large sliding glass door, sheltering a well-equipped modular living space. There is a real double cabin below the wheelhouse at the bow of the boat, with storage and a shower en suite, so you can stay on board for a few days. With walnut stained woodwork, the boat offers a very contemporary atmosphere.
