2018 Antares 44i Catamaran
Ohana is one of the newest Antares on the market with Selden’s powered in-mast furling mainsail.
There is a lot to consider when choosing a vessel to take you around the world, particularly when you have two young children coming along for the ride. Safety, of course, is the first consideration. So it was no surprise to us when Ted and Jennifer decided to buy Antares 44i s/v Ohana. They took delivery of their catamaran nearly two years ago in Argentina.
With a monohull background, Ted and Jen began their search for a catamaran for many reasons but were mainly focused on function in terms of the space, and seaworthiness. Their journey quickly brought them to Antares, which was, in their own words, the only choice.
“From the bulkhead and all the structure, I could tell that the designer knew what he was doing. It was a very solid and a very well thought design in every little detail, from the angle of the steps and the sugar scoops, where everything is placed, to the engines being central and the shaft drive.
A lot of the other catamarans are very fragile. Nobody else has a skegged rudder. So, the skegged rudder was a big deal, too. And having a wind shield, an enclosed cockpit, and having the whole thing set up so it can be single handed, meant that one of us can sail the boat and the other one can be with the kids.” Says Ted.
With that in mind, Ohana is one of the newest Antares on the market and is outfitted with Selden’s powered in-mast furling mainsail. This makes cruising just that much easier, particularly for short-handed sailors, without any sacrifice to performance.
From two chart plotters to a watermaker, solar panels, SSB radio and more, Ohana is equipped for around-the-world cruising and is a perfect choice for the liveaboard cruiser. Of course, Ohana is also equipped with all the safety gear necessary for a family of four – and includes a liferaft and EPIRB, to name a few.
Ohana is currently docked in Florida and is ready to welcome you aboard on your new adventures.

Listing with Rhumb Line Yacht Sales
"When the time came to sell my Antares 44i Antipodes, my first and only broker of choice was Rhumb Line Yacht Sales. Their thorough knowledge of the Antares and their strong relationships with the owner’s group and the factory ensured that they would best represent my yacht.
Beth and Ross have been very responsive to all my questions, and their outstanding support and service is truly impressive. In my absence they have coordinated any work required on my yacht, including managing the installation of new Volvo engines by moving Antipodes to the yard and back, and making sure all the work was done properly. There really isn’t anyone else out there that I would wholeheartedly trust to care for my yacht.
I know that I can rely on them for the best possible advice and am positive that whoever buys Antipodes will benefit greatly from their service."Charles - s/v Antipodes
