NT News - Motoring - - NEWS - www.nt­

THE Club Ma­rine Man­durah Boat Show last week­end had some of the best boat­ing prod­ucts from Aus­tralia and from around the world.

One of the over­seas im­ports that made a huge im­pres­sion was the Beneteau Antares 30S, shown by lo­cal dis­trib­u­torJW Ma­rine.

For­mer Test cricket opener Geoff Marsh, who has been in­volved in boat sales for sev­eral years and is a reg­u­lar at the Man­durah Boat Show, was on hand to show peo­ple over the Antares 30S.

French-based Beneteau has been build­ing boats for more than 120 years and is renowned for ves­sels that of­fer pure cruis­ing plea­sure and great sea-keep­ing qual­i­ties.

The sleek Antares 30S has a hull length of 9.2m and dif­fers from the Antares 30 in that in­stead of a fly­bridge it has a fixed canopy with two large open­ing pan­els that pro­vide op­ti­mal ac­cess for the wheel­house in­te­rior and ex­cel­lent ven­ti­la­tion for the in­te­rior liv­ing space.

Marsh said the Antares 30S was all about bril­liant de­sign, with the em­pha­sis on max­i­mum com­fort.

The ex­cep­tion­ally spa­cious

The Antares 30S is packed with clever stor­age so­lu­tions for ev­ery con­ceiv­able need.

It has a pro­gres­sive plan­ing hull that of­fers proven per­for­mance and a re­as­sur­ing sta­bil­ity pro­vided by the pro­nounced for­wardVand flared bow shape, with a top speed of 26 knots achiev­able. Spec­i­fi­ca­tions: Beneteau Antares 30S
