Introducing yacht for sale ANTARES (40M/131’), from the renowned Royal Huisman shipyard. She is one of the world’s finest quality aluminum sailing yachts and has seen exhaustive maintenance and upgrade investments over the last 8 years of Ownership. Sailing yacht ANTARES has only ever been operated under private use and never operated commercially, making her a unique offering on the market.

ANTARES boasts a subtly styled 1930’s Art Deco interior meticulously crafted by the internationally renowned designers Rhoades Young. In 2016, the interior underwent a comprehensive refit, integrating contemporary upgrades. The redesign was meticulously tailored for family cruising around the globe, ensuring both elegance and functionality in every detail.

The deckhouse of ANTARES stands out as a highlight, offering 360-degree visibility through large windows and featuring lowering glass panels that connect the area to the central cockpit. Adorned with teak joinery, the deckhouse boasts spacious seating areas, including large sofas and a convertible dining table for 12 guests. Adjacent, the yacht's internal navigation and communication center facilitate seamless operation. Descending from the deckhouse, a large saloon and dining area provide spaces for relaxation and productivity, with a focus on family comfort and creativity.

Yacht for sale ANTARES boasts 4 staterooms with the ability to sleep 9 guests. The 4 staterooms consist of a double master stateroom aft, double VIP stateroom to port, a twin cabin with pullman berth to starboard, and a convertible double stateroom forward in the yacht’s office/study. All guest cabins were fitted with new carpets, upholstery, and hardware in 2016, and each feature ensuite facilities. Most notable is the master stateroom which is accessed via a private entrance aft of the deckhouse. Featuring a vanity table, an ensuite with twin sinks and marble surfaces, and luxurious décor, the master stateroom is one of the most desirable features and focal points of the yacht.

ANTARES is truly the ideal cruising yacht, thanks in part to her versatile ketch rig and spacious interior. She has proudly sailed the seas far and wide with her owner-family for the past 8 years. For the last 5 years specifically, ANTARES has extensively cruised the South Pacific undergoing adaptations to ensure redundancy and robustness for expedition-style service. With a legacy of exploration and comfort, ANTARES awaits her next chapter, ready to continue her journey with new adventurers at the helm.
