The boat is thoroughly inspected several times before is leaves the plant. Once the final QC inspection is complete, the boat is ready to be launched. Once the boat is in the water, our experienced commissioning teams make sure the boat is finely tuned and seaworthy.
This is also the first time we run the engines. This allows us to check for any manufacturer defects. The steering calibration is also checked to ensure proper rudder alignment.
The mast is stepped and the Antares is ready for its first sea trial. By working closely with the premier mast manufacturer, Antares and Seldén Mast engineered rigging with double diamond arrangement and forward jumper to withstand loads well above typical expectations.
The boat leaves the dock only when the customer is 100% satisfied and feels confident about taking ownership of their new boat.
