Timber Cruising Yacht

Description

"Antares" 1972 66ft Italian built wooden classic.


She was bought by current owners in 1995 where they spent 2 years in Fort Lauderdale doing a major refit before taking off on an adventure of a life time. After many miles and countless stories, Antares made her way to Australia where she currently lies, off Palm Beach Pittwater. They have maintained and updated her continuously for 23 years.


Its not until stepping aboard that you really appreciate the quality of this fine vessel. She oozes loads of charm below deck.
