Captain Dilip Donde is the first Indian to have sailed around the world alone, making Indian maritime history in 2010. A retired Naval officer, he has also trained and inspired Indian sailors, and has been a pioneer with Antara. Antara is a Van de Stadt Design (Yacht Designers and Naval Architects from The Netherlands). The 40-foot sailboat is an ocean-going yacht and pleasure boat (LOA 12.70M, LWL 9.50M, BREADTH 3.90M).

We had the opportunity for yacht repair in Goa, India. The vessel was lifted by a 50 Ton crane for underwater maintenance routines and yacht painting. Rudder was replaced and set, epoxy and anti fouling paint was applied.
