The Antarès range has been further extended with the arrival of the Antarès 6.20 OB.This new outboard-driven model has the distinctive feature of an unsinkable hull (certification pending).It has similar lines and planing hull to its sister, the Antarès 6.50 HB, and promises excellent sea-keeping and stability both underway and at rest.With a walk-around deck, a spacious wheelhouse and a large self-draining cockpit, the Antarès 6.20 OB provides for a variety of uses from coastal passages to fishing trips.Fitted out in an clever but functional way, its standard equipment is comprehensive, including a glass windscreen, electric wipers, fish-box, her own water supply, steering compass, cockpit seating, fishing-rod holders and opening hatch in the wheelhouse roof.The Antarès 6.20 OBs C6 category approval, her cabin and her 90HP outboard (maximum 115HP) make her perfect for day trips. Also worth noting is this boat?s shallow draft: only 40cm (16 ins) with the engine raised.This boat will be previewed at the next Grand Pavois boat show and will be available to buy from autumn 2004.
