About this Beneteau Antares 7
Lovely example of the ever popular Beneteau Antares 7. This is the inboard diesel version with a very well maintained Yanmar 4BY 150hp power unit installed. Secondary helm with trolling valve. Deck wash pump and bathing platform. Cockpit Vis a Vis seating with removable seat cushions and table. Large wheelhouse with helm and co-pilot seating.
Copper coated hull with skeg protector bar. U-Shaped seating in bow converts to double. Separate heads compartment with sea toilet. Galley area with fridge. Cabin heating.
GRP constructed motor boat with semi displacement hull profile. Mid mounted engine and hull shape allow for ease of maneuverability at both low and high speeds. Under water profile features a directional skeg from which the propeller shaft protrudes. This is further protected by a cast iron prop guard that extends aft to below the rudder. This will eliminate potential breakdowns from pot ropes.
The underwater areas were copercoated from new,. This has been well maintained by the first and present owners.
Smart white hi-gloss gelcoat topsides with smart navy and silver hull decoration. Hull to deck join covered in a heavy duty nylon fender. Bathing access platform at transom with built in bathing ladder. Self bailing anchor locker with electric windlass and large capacity for chain and warp. Tilting stainless steel bow fitting allows anchor to be permanently mounted and extends the anchor away from the bow to minimise damage during retrieval.Stainless steel bow rail offers protection when forward. The rails extend aft to the cockpit. handily placed stainless steel grab rails as you leave the cockpit and on top of the wheelhouse roof.
Lage self bailing cockpit with large below deck storage areas. The engine housing incorporates a very handy seat with a removable seat cushion and backrest. The saloon table can be used outside and the "picnic" setting is completed by another removable moulding which can be used as a storage box as well as an additional seat with its own cushion. The gunwales are deep so you will feel secure when drifting onyr in a seaway. The gunwales are topped with teak incorporating hand rails, fairleads and rod rests. Opening transom door to bathing platform.
At time of build the vessel came with the additional exterior throttle and trolling valve. These along with the emergency tiller would allow the boat to be driven from the stern. The reality is that here in the Northeast we dont really get the weather for exterior driving and we never use trolling valves. Both these features have been disconnected. A more handy option is the deck wash pump which gets a use everytime she is fishing.

Those familiar with BMW's will know that these units provided excellent power from a relatively light build weight. This engine has been well maintained and has service history up to late 2019. It starts first time every time and will continue to provide many years of reliable service to come. She has done 1510 at time of writing.

Forward of the helm is the heads compartment with Jabsco sea toilet. Here you will find the infill board to convert the bow seating area into a large double. There is good storage beneath the seating. The table can be removed and used outside. Large opening roof hatch and smaller foredeck hatch let in lots of light and ventilation. The boat used to have curtains but these have been removed as they were faded and a tad mouldy. The rails and hooks are still in place though should new curtains be desired.
