Wow! This is a super clean and well equipped 1-owner Beneteau 42 Center Cockpit. "ANTARES" has been extremely well maintained and is one of the last 42 CCs to come into the US. It seems to be getting harder and harder to find nice center cockpit boats and this is certainly one of them. Some of the advantages of the center cockpit are the large aft owner's cabin and the open aft deck. Don't let this boat get away.

The new Oceanis 42CC benefits from all Beneteau's cruising savoir faire. The first boat hit the water and captured imaginations with her classic lines and elegant topsides. A past pioneer of the bathing platform for looks and practicality, Beneteau has revived the classic transom but managed to keep all the advantages of the bathing platform. This innovation has resulted in a large aft deck area flanked by 2 side lockers accessible from the deck, a sliding section concealing a two-tread staircase down to a gangway made from the drop-down transom. The transom/gangway pulls up shut for close-up, stern-to mooring.Other features of the 42CC include: the spacious, well laid-out accommodation which is highly 'owner' orientated, comfortable ride, whatever the sea state and she has easy access to engine and technical areas.
The U-shaped cockpit is both comfortable and safe. All lines are led aft, so sailing the boat is easy without leaving cockpit. Custom cockpit cushions add to the comfort and the wheel set to starboard really opens it up. All electronics are right in front of the wheel and to port is an electric winch to make sail handling a breeze.
One of the advantages to the center cockpit layout is the large aft deck. Perfect for deck chairs when at the dock or anchored. The transom opens up to an ingenious step down and swim platform. Perfect for getting on and off a dinghy or getting out of the water after a swim. The hot and cold stern shower is great for washing off after a swim. To port and starboard are teak seats and in the middle is the dinghy davits, dinghy, engine lift and engine mount.
Forward is the anchor locker and windlass. This boat has both switches for the windlass at the windlass and at the helm.
As you come down the companionway you will find a well layed-out and comfortable salon. There are plenty of ports, hatches and windows to let in a lot of natural light. To starboard is the U-shaped dinette with access to the ship's systems. The table can be expanded or put down for another berth. To port is a proper Nav. Station and a couple of larger cabinets for storage. The natural cherry wood give the salon a proper "yacht" look.
The galley is located port side leading back to the aft stateroom. There is plenty of counter space on either side of the galley. The linear galley works very well underway.
One of the big advantages to the center cockpit layout is the aft master stateroom. With a large centerline berth there is no climbing over your partner in the middle of the night to get out. The Beneteau 42 CC also contains a lot of storage space and a private head with separate shower. All this along with a custom mounted TV and DVD player at the foot of berth makes for an amazing private owner's cabin.
Forward of the Salon is the Forward Berth. To port is the Pullman Berth and to starboard is a hanging locker and seat. Forward of the berth is the second head.
