2013 Antares 44i Catamaran
Live your adventure aboard this true world cruiser
The decision to buy a catamaran half-way across the world and take several years exploring to get it back home came easily for Bob and Sharon. The reputation for the Antares as the world’s best liveaboard had reached far beyond international borders.
When these two adventurers took delivery of their Antares 44i Kristal in Argentina, they started on a long journey back to their home port in Malaysia, not exactly a hop, skip and a jump away! Over the course of the next few years, their travels took them up the coast of South America and into the Caribbean. From there, they joined the World ARC in St. Lucia and set off on an adventure that would eventually lead them to Asia.
After spending a few seasons in the Caribbean, the decision to join the World ARC came easy. This would give them both the peace of mind of following a well-established agenda and provide them with the camaraderie of sailing half-way around the world with fellow sailors who would become life-long friends.
Needless to say, this Antares 44i is dressed to the nines – additional solar panels, SSB Radio, wind turbine, all the safety gear required to join the ARC, full Furuno electronics, a secondary solar powered watermaker and, for exploring some of the world’s best snorkeling in Malaysia and Indonesia, a Brownie Hookah system. That’s all in addition to the already well-equipped items onboard the 44i version of the Antares.
Antares 44i Kristal is wired with 230 VAC, ideal for future European, Asian and South Pacific exploration. This is an exceptional opportunity to start your sailing adventure in one of the world’s top diving areas and start your own world-wide journey aboard Kristal.
