Beneteau - Antares 12

Designed and built by Beneteau in 2006. Well known for her good sea keeping abilities, the Antares 12 is a rugged, but stylish looking twin diesel flybridge cruiser, ideal for both cruising and sea fishing. Practical features include the large draining aft cockpit with stern gate to bathing platform and wide side decks. The flybridge on this Beneteau Antares 12 has two seats at aft end plus sun loungers. Internally there is accommodation for 4 in two good cabins plus a further double berth in the cockpit which has a fold out double bed. The new cockpit cover has internal curtains should the cockpit be used for sleeping. She is in fantastic condition and a full survey report is available from 2013.
