Beneteau Antares 12 Flybridge cruiser exclusively for sale with Flagstaff Marine Rushcutters Bay. This 2 cabin, 2 head cruiser is designed with cruising in mind, with comfortable sea keeping qualities and spacious living areas. The Beneteau Antares 12 is a proven French design that is a very capable motor boat, either on the English Channel or lounging in the Mediterranean sun, which make it an ideal all-rounder for Australian conditions.

The interior is bathed in light from the large panoramic windows and is finished in quality varnished Mukali timber. A discrete galley opens up to reveal a fully equipped galley with electric cooktop, microwave oven sink and fridge. The saloon table is surrounded by a plush U shaped settee. The saloon also houses the helm station with twin skipper seat and excellent all round visibility.

The saloon opens aft to a generous deck with convertible sun lounge seat. The aft deck has an electric BBQ. The enclosed transom opens to the aft marlin board with swim ladder for swimming and marina access.

Below decks are two cabins and 2 heads. Forward is a large master cabin with island double berth and ensuite with electric head and separate shower room. A double cabin and day head are also below deck. All cabins are spacious with lots of good storage in hanging cupboards and drawers. The Antares 12 sleeps 4 adults in complete comfort and is an ideal family cruiser for extended holidays on the water.

The flybridge is accessed aft by stairs with good handholds and is an excellent entertaining area, helm station, sun lounge or dining area. The flybridge is fully enclosed by a bimini with opening clear side covers.

Wide side decks and solid side rails allow easy movement around the boat for enjoyment or anchoring at your favourite spot. This Beneteau Antares 12 is powered by twin Volvo Penta D6-370 IPS engines with low hours. Performance is awesome with speeds up to 31 knots.
