Beneteau Antares 8.80 with Suzuki 250HP

In my view the Antares 8.80 is one of the best family boats for Northern Europe; and here’s why…

  1. It Has 6 Berths – At 29′ long and 9’08″ wide it has 2 double berths in 2 cabins down below, and a convertible saloon dinette. So it’s big enough to be a proper family cruiser, but small enough to still be easily manageable and economical to run.
  2. It has a Hard Roof and Enclosed Wheelhouse, so if it starts raining just close the sliding glass doors and carry on with your day out on the water! It really has been designed and built for use in our northern climate…
  3. It’s Versatile enough to keep everyone happy – whether you’re relaxing in the sun, picnicking on board, paddle boarding in a secluded bay or even pulling water toys, this boat can do it all in comfort.
  4. It’s Outboard Powered – The reasons for the modern trend towards outboard power are numerous; from clean and quiet running, to lower maintenance bills and the increased space onboard it’s easy to see why lots of buyers are keen on outboard power. And the single fuel efficient 250HP Suzuki on this boat is a beauty – super smooth and refined with plenty of power and a great service history, it should provide years of trouble-free running.
  5. It’s Easy to Manage and Maintain – if you’ve done any cruising at all you quickly come to appreciate that more space is great, but bigger boats come with much bigger bills and generally more hassle. I think the Antares 8.80 marks a sweet spot where the boat is big enough to accommodate all the family for long weekends away (or big groups of friends for day trips), but it still compact enough to manage easily and it won’t cost the earth to run and maintain. I think it delivers the best of both worlds. It’s even possible to pull this boat out of the water on a trailer in the winter for easy off-season storage and maintenance….
  6. Safety and Sea Keeping- Being built by a highly respected European yard, the Beneteau Antares 8.80 is built to handle Northern European conditions; be that coastal waters or big lakes. She has a solid build (demonstrated by her 3.7 tonne weight), Air-Step hull with extended aft planning surfaces and self-bailing decks, making her a very competent sea boat. So you can take your family and passengers out in confidence that she will get you safely home in comfort.

All in all I think that if you’re searching for a great all around family sports cruiser, this stunning Beneteau is well worth a look.

This boat is in beautiful condition throughout, has been very well looked after and boasts an excellent spec – including Bow & Stern Thruster, Anchor Windlass, Shore Power, Lowrance Chartplotter / Fishfinder, VHF radio, Camper Canvas Covers, Sunpad Cushions, etc, etc. She has a comprehensive service history and a full chain of title.   She is ready to go for her new owners.

This boat is EU VAT paid, is immediately available, and we can easily arrange delivery throughout the Ireland and Europe.  Part Exchange is possible.
