The first flybridge in the Antarès range

This is the first flybridge boat to grace the popular Bénéteau Anatrès range.

Despite the name, at 33ft the 30 flybridge offers plenty of size for the money and opens flybridge boating up to market previously untouched by the French yard.

Interestingly there are two versions of the flybridge on offer, one which has just a large sun pad and dinette on the upper deck and no helm position, for those who just want to be closer to the sun. The other option includes the helm position, something which we feel will be a popular choice.

Elsewhere, a three panel, sliding glass door grants access from the cockpit to the saloon which, thanks to an abundance of glass, should be light filled and graced with a good view out for the crew. The galley to starboard is well equipped with a 65 litre fridge and is in the perfect position to serve the cockpit and flybridge.

At bed time, guests can retire to their twin bunks on the port side, whilst the owners are treated to a double in the bow – both cabins share the washroom.

With the highest powered 380hp engines we reckon the 30 should be good for 30 knots, the trusty Antarés hull can usually be relied on to provide a comfortable ride as well.
