One of the last Beneteau Antares Serie 9 to be built before the introduction of the Antares 30. This is a non flybridge version which gives you more room in the cockpit and less faff having to get up the ladder to use an upper helm that you rarely would of used anyway. Ideal for our northern climate. This is the Volvo D4-225 version which offers comfortable cruising of 16-18 knots depending on how many are on board, sea state and the state of your bottom. She has only completed 450 hours and is in excellent condition. The hull has been antifouled and the blue topsides are in lovely condition.
The cockpit has a rarely used full cockpit enclosure. This is currently not onboard but is included in the sale. The interior offers 4-berth accommodation with a permanent double forward and a convertible double in the saloon. The saloon upholstery has recently been covered in easy clean vinyl. The interior curtains are available but not fitted. Functional galley with moulded sink, 2-burner hob and a small fridge.
Electronic navigation includes a Brand NEW Garmin touch screen colour plotter/depth sounder and a Garmin VHF with inbuilt GPS.
