42' PDQ Antares 2002

Annapolis, MD


The PDQ Antares is a catamaran designed and built for owners - not for large charter groups! This focus is reflected throughout the interior allowing extravagant accommodations for owners and guests as well as an ability to carry provisions, spares and equipment for very extended cruising.

 The construction of the Antares is highly regarded throughout the industry as is her comfortably balanced performance. While heading to New England the owners of “KAVU” report doing 18 knots with the spinnaker set while preparing a delicious dinner for just the two of them. The sound of wind and wave were the only sounds that accompanied them as they rushed toward their destination in the hands of the autopilot.

Built in Canada to exceptionally high specifications the PDQ Antares will take you wherever you wish to go in safety and comfort. The PDQ Antares 44 is her sister ship, with the only difference being an extension of the stairs/swim platform and a change to the aft end of the salon.

KAVU has been a very well loved yacht and is being sold only because there is no place to sail her in Colorado.

A strong, capable, yacht and a tremendous value at this asking price!

Kavu has three staterooms and one head with a large separate shower. In lieu of a second head, the owners opted for a large work room on the port side (this could easily be converted back to a second head). Exquisite teak-and-holly sole throughout the yacht is protected by cut-to-fit removable carpeting that complements the woodwork finishing. Massive amounts of space make it easy to live aboard or just get away from it all for long stretches of time. And bright natural light pouring in the multitude of cabin windows, hatches and opening portlights make the interior of this yacht so cheery and comfortable that those stretches of time will pass by breezily. A forced-air diesel heater plumbed throughout keeps the entire boat warm on chilly nights, and dedicated air conditioners enable you to keep cool only those cabins you use.

  • Webasto AT5000 18,800-BTU forced-air diesel heater
  • Updated removable carpet over teak-and-holly sole
  • LED down-lighting at floor level and on interior steps

Aft on the starboard side is the spacious owner’s suite. How spacious? How about legitimate 6-foot, 5-inch-plus standing headroom, along with a large aft-facing hatch and two big opening portlights outboard for tons of natural light spacious? There’s a full-sized queen bed featuring a Select Comfort mattress (so you can choose your own firmness setting) with coils underneath for ventilation and comfort. Tons of room with two lined, walk-in closets and more than half a dozen other lined closets, four drawers, and plenty of other storage.

  • Small settee at the foot of the bed
  • Webasto reverse-cycle air conditioner
  • Two reading lamps
  • Overhead LED lights
  • 12-volt fan
  • USB and 110v outlets

Forward of the master stateroom is the head with just as much headroom as the stateroom. The head features a separate, one-piece, walk-in shower with a clear glass door. The shower is so big it has a towel hanger INSIDE the shower (it’s a shower big enough for two). There’s an electric, Vacuflush toilet — a Tankwatch tank monitor — that uses fresh water so there’s no odor. A Corian countertop surrounds the stainless-steel sink. You can use the huge mirror (with oversized, shelved storage behind it) thanks to the bright light pouring in the overhead Bomar hatch and the opening portlight outboard.

  • Sealand Tankwatch 4-Level monitor system

This is more like a living room than the salon on a boat. There’s a settee that seats seven around a large dining table that has folding corners to make it even larger. A broad desk serves as navigation station or work space, whichever you prefer (or both). There’s a cocktail bar with a dedicated sink and storage, and an entertainment center that rivals anything on land, complete with flat-screen TV and surround-sound stereo components (including a subwoofer).

  • Cruisair reverse-cycle air conditioner
  • Samsung flat-screen, 43-inch TV
  • Surround stereo w/ Denon AV amplifier, three speakers and subwoofer
  • Weems & Plath clock and barometer
  • New salon cushions
