S/V Antipodes is a North Carolina based 2015 Antares 44i Catamaran For Sale By Broker. She is in outstanding condition and has been rarely used by the owner.

The construction of the Antares 44 is highly regarded throughout the industry as is her comfortably balanced performance. Not your run of the mill production charter catamaran. This is a catamaran designed and built for owners – not for large charter groups! This focus is reflected throughout the interior allowing extravagant accommodations for owners and guests as well as an ability to carry provisions, spares and equipment for very extended cruising. Galley down design.

The hull and deck are constructed of Isophthalic acid resin and tri-axial knitted fiberglass fabric. The skinning layer is 100% vinylester on the exterior and polyester on the interior. Above the waterline, the hulls and deck are cored with Corecell foam, except for hardware attachment points. All coring is vacuum-bagged to ensure 100% adhesion. Below the waterline, hulls are solid fiberglass. There are 2 forward watertight compartments, one inside each bow locker, as well as 4 watertight bulkheads, 2 forward, and 2 aft. Standard fin keels have a sacrificial section allowing for substantial damage to keels without affecting hull integrity.

Highlights of Antipodes include a KVH V3 high-speed satellite dome, NEW trampoline on the foredeck, NEW B&G Zeus chartplotters, Silent Wind Pro generator,  and much more.  The complete list of items is located in the inventory section of this listing.

The settee is L-shaped and centered in the saloon. It is elevated on a platform for increased visibility and provides storage underneath. The table is designed to drop down to coffee table height or raise for dining. There are folding corners that allow the table to be larger or smaller depending on the crowd. There is an entertainment/storage unit on the aft salon wall. It is 19″ deep has multiple drawers and cupboards.

Just pack your clothes, and set sail to anywhere in the world on this lightly used 2015 Antares 44i.
