New Model: Beneteau 32 Antares

Beneteau launches its seventh model of the Antares inboard engines line up, the 32 flybridge model.  Sitting the middle of the range the 32 Antares is again a design of Beneteau Power Boats, and Sarazin and is based on the hull lines of the 30 model with the main difference being a twin engine choice.  For this not so big cruiser the Beneteau design team was inspired by the looks of the larger Antares models.  Inside the 32 Antares offers two cabins with a main deck having a galley, saloon which transforms to an additional double berth, and lower helm.  The owners room is located to fore, and a two berth with bunks guest cabin is located to port side.  Power is from twin 200hp diesel engines with shafts, this being also a major difference from the 30 Antares model on which the 32 is based.  On this hull form Beneteau has been clever to release three different models; 30, 30S, and 32 Antares all suiting to different client needs.
