The Beneteau Antares 10.80 was an incredibly successful model for Beneteau. Her sea keeping is unrivalled for a 36ft flybridge boat and the combination of wide sidedecks, comfortable accomodation and secure cockpit made her an ideal platform for longer term cruising, fishing or days out on the water.
With new style lines, new carpets and a jolly good polish “Silver Lady” looks really nice! Mechanically she appears to have been well looked after and the engines look clean and tidy. A nice example of a great model, well worth viewing.
