New Hybrid & GT Cockpit Design We completely redesigned the cockpit, increasing space, increasing window sizes, adding streamlined seating that is easier to lounge, without compromising our excellent helm position or the ability to manage all lines in the cockpit easily. We are excited to announce our NEW Hybrid option for the Antares 44. We assembled a team of customers, owners, and engineers to design a proven technology solution without compromising our high standards. Antares 44 GT vs. Antares 44 Hybrid The Antares 44 GT and Antares 44 Hybrid both share the same design and have the new upgrades to the cockpit, electrical systems, increased ventilation inside, etc. However, there are some significant differences – the largest is ‘how’ the boat is powered. These changes are highlighted below. For additional details on the hybrid design and components, please visit our hybrid page here.
