S/V Kailani is a PDQ Antares 44 Catamaran For Sale By Owner. Kailani was built by PDQ Yachts in Canada in 2005. New Antares are now built by 40 Grados Sur Shipyard in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The construction of the Antares 44 is highly regarded throughout the industry for her balanced performance and comfort. Contrary to most production chartered catamarans, this is a catamaran designed and built for owners – especially for those who want to liveaboard full time and cruise around the world! 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 journeys.

Construction – The hull and deck are constructed of Isophathalic acid resin and tri-axial knitted fiberglass fabric. The skinning layer is 100% vinylester. Above the waterline, the hulls and deck are cored with ¾” Corecell foam, except for hardware attachment points. All coring is vacuum bagged to ensure 100% adhesion. Below the water line, hulls are solid fiberglass. The two main bulkheads are composite and clad in Cherry veneer. The forward and aft beams are composites of balsa coring, tri-axial and unidirectional cloth. All bulkheads are glassed to the hull & deck using x-weave knitted fabric that increases up to 50% more strength than standard cloth. Cabinets and shelvings are glassed-in forming an integral part of the hull structure and to minimize rattling. Floorboards are rigidly supported to minimize movements and noise inside the vessel.

There are 4 anti-collision watertight compartments, one under each forward bow locker plus the 2 stern lockers. Standard fin keels have a sacrificial section allowing for substantial damage to keels without affecting hull integrity. Unique shaft drive and skeg-hung rudder construction provide added safety in passage making.

Why do Passage-making Cruisers buy Antares? To begin with, for a mid-size cruising catamaran, Antares are not cheap! Nevertheless, Antares customers are prepared to pay a premium over similar size cruising catamarans for of its design, build quality, features, comfort, performance, after sales support and most of all –SAFETY! Antares are certified as a Category A Ocean Class sailing vessel and rated by many yachting authorities as the best Liveaboard cruising catamaran. Customer services by Antares Yachts are legendary. No other boat builders in the industry come close in offering their buyers as much support with product information, manuals, wiring diagrams, technical drawings and even personal consultations regarding their vessels – both before and after sales!
