A more "European" styled version of the Elite Mid-Pilothouse, this vessel also features an up-spec'd interior with gloss varnished Cherry bulkheads, cabinetry and pelmets, combined with equisite flooring and upholstery detailing to create a very sophisticated feel.

Antipodes has all the features which make the Elite Mid Pilothouse such a popular and user friendly design. The ease of access to the pilothouse, which is reached via a few easy steps rather than the typical ladder, turns the helm station into another living area, meaning the helmsman is not isolated as is often the case on flybridge boats. The separate dinette and saloon areas create space for different groups, while the electric window between the dinette and cockpit accentuates the indoor-outdoor flow. The three cabin, two head accomodation, including a large master cabin with ensuite, provides unparalleled comfort and privacy.

In the Mid Pilothouse design configuration the engines are amidships under the saloon sole, this allows for a flatter shaft angle which improves propellor efficiency and lowers draft. Easy access to the engine room is via a door in the forward guest cabin, while large hatches in the saloon sole cater for engine servicing and maintenance requirements. The hull form is one that performs well with modest horse-power and has excellent sea keeping qualities.

Antipodes also boasts a large built in boarding platform with Portofino stern which creates a spacious cockpit with large lazarette entry hatches and built in livebait tank. She also has both bow and stern thrusters to facilitate safe and easy handling.

The interior décor on Antipodes was designed by Kim Lilley. Park Hurst Design
