A lovely Antares 9.80 just arrived. We collected this boat by sea and sailled her from Cardiff to Swansea, she is very comfy cruising at 18 knots at 2,800 rpm. A very solid and sturdy sea boat and this one is in immaculate condition.
The 9.80 is a four berth twin diesel cruising boat, she has an island double at the bow and bunk beds to starboard. The heads with electric toilet and shower is to port. The saloon area is amazingly sociable, a large wrap around sofa is to port ( re upholstered 2020 along with all the beds) with a folding table. The galley is at the front and opposite the helm, a large worktop area is opposite the sofa with fridge and plenty of cupboard space.
The rear cockpit is full teak, has a folding rear bench and a huge floor locker. There are full covers for the rear cockpit.
The flybridge has a full helm station and also includes a new chart plotter. The boat is equipped with chartplotter, vhf, radar, autopilot, diesel heating, shore power, trim tabs, hot water, gas hob and oven, bow thruster, stereo, clock and barometer set.
This boat is in great condition and well worth viewing. The hull is due to be polished and the anodes replaced November 2020.Read more
