Always wanted to know how an Antaris sloop is built? All sloops are built in-house. We would like to give you a glimpse of our shipyard in Woudsend and polyester factory in Zwaag by means of these photographs.
For the production of the hull, we use moulds in our polyester factory in Zwaag:
The hulls and decks are then transported by our own means to the production hall in Woudsend. This is where the next steps in the production process of the Makma sloop are taken:
First, the boat is brought to the antifouling department. Here the hull is sanded, degreased and put in primer and antifoulingThen the technical parts are assembled in the hull, including the motor, the propeller shaft, the bilge pump, the batteries and so on.In the meantime, the synthetic teak floor and details are put into the deck and the wiring for the lighting, among other things, is installedIn the models with cabin, the interior is made to measure in the wood department and finished in the boatAfter this, the hull and deck are glued together, this is also called ‘the marriage’.After the deck and hull have been joined, the last parts are neatly sealed. The motor box and the steering console are placed and the latest technology is installedNow the boat is ready to be tested in the water. Our experienced technicians configure the latest settings and ensure that everything works as it should. This also includes a brief trial runFinally, the boat goes to the finishing department, where the boat is completely cleaned. The cushions, bimini and spray hood are also attached. All ready for delivery!
