About this Beneteau Antares 30 S


The Antares 30S is a rare Sedan version of the popular Antares 30, combining the same great hull design with a sleeker superstructure with lower air draft and cleaner, almost classic lines. Free Spirit is fitted with the most desirable Volvo Penta D6-370 engine option giving effortless performance along with sensible running costs thanks to their efficency and shaft drive. She is fitted with electronic engine controls, combined with bow and stern thrusters, easily accessed side decks, and electric windlass, make her very easily handled, ideal for short or single-handed use. Presented in excellent condition she is likely to be one of the best available, and makes an excellent alternative to the Nimbus, Jeanneau NC, Beneteau Swift Trawler, or Broom rivals, so be quick to avoid disappointment.
