2004 Beneteau Antares 9.8
** SOLD **
The folks at Beneteau have engineered a perfect family cruiser. With prop pockets for inshore cruising and offshore stability and a pair of economical 210 hp diesels, this 32 makes a great package for today’s active family. The adjustable transom can expand the cockpit for fishing adventures and convert to give you a huge swim deck. There is sleeping for four and plenty of room on the bridge for guests. Wide side decks make safe access to the foredeck.
This is a one owner boat…lightly used during New England summers and stored indoors each winter. The owners’ plans have changed. Come have a look, you won’t be disappointed.
The master stateroom is forward with a centerline double berth. There is a flat screen TV on a custom rack, hanging locker, drawer storage, and opening vents for cross ventilation. Next aft on port is the enclosed head and opposite on starboard is a second stateroom with stacking berths. Up two steps you enter the helm area on starboard. The lower helm is appointed with complete instrumentation, radar and GPS readouts, and is complete with a helm seat that converts to a bolster. The owner has added storage beneath the seat for essentials like binoculars, charts, etc. The galley starts out on port with a double stainless sink and propane stove and continues onto the starboard where the refrigerator is located under a fore and aft countertop. There is an L-shaped settee on port with removable table.
Passing through a slider, you enter the cockpit with plenty of room for the family. The aft bulkhead of the cockpit is mounted on tracks which allows the transom to move forward increasing the size of the swim platform. There is a transom door. There is a stainless steel ladder with wide teak steps leading to the bridge where there are two pedestal seats, a sun lounge and bench seat aft.
