QUESTIONS TO ASK THE CATAMARAN BUILDER

Coring: What kind of coring do you use in the construction of the catamaran hull and deck?

Coring is a structural stiffener sandwiched between two layers of fiberglass skin. Coring is particularly important to acatamaran builder because of the need to create stiffness with reduced weight. Most production catamaran buildrs choose to build their hulls and decks using balsa coring, which is made of balsa wood cut across the grain in thin slices to expose the end grain fibres. Balsa core is well known for its high resistance to compression.

Steering: What kind of steering system is installed on your boat? Is it shaft, wire or hydraulic steering?

Antares Yachts uses a premium Jefa shaft and gearbox system. The gearbox converts rotary motion to transverse motion, which moves the tiller arm. This shaft and gearbox system is superior to other steering systems such as wire or hydraulic in terms of precision, feedback and integrity.
