Well known for their good sea keeping abilities and rugged build, the Antares range from Beneteau has developed over many years, initially aimed at anglers, where the owners wanted a sturdy boat to get out to the fishing grounds quickly. Over the years the range has evolved more towards the cruising/day boat use. The Antares 6 was developed specifically for the day boat/overnight boater and was the first boat of this size to offer the combination of a comfortable interior with a separate heads, enclosed wheelhouse and a large cockpit. “Sally Ann” was sold by us new to her first owner and again to her current owner who has since added hot & cold water system and a full cockpit enclosure canopy.
