|Since her launching in 1992, Antaeus made her winning form felt throughout Auckland's Hauraki Gulf and the South Pacific, dominating both offshore races and inshore series'. A long record of national and international successes described her as New Zealand's Premiere offshore racer. Her overall length and volume is ideally suited for ocean passages being strong enough to handle adverse conditions and yet not requiring a professional crew. The engineering of the lifting keel is so efficient that it is able to be lifted and lowered while travelling at speeds of up to 10 knots. At 65 feet (20.24 meters) Antaeus is suitable for berthing in marina facilities, while the lift keel allows access to most harbours and sheltered anchorages. Recent refits and new reconfigured sail plan have the yacht fully set up for easy handling making her ideal for cruising, charter and big boat regatta racing.
