KLM Antares is a splendid Indonesian hand-built traditional wooden boat (Phinisi) constructed in south Sulawesi, Indonesia, where all the master boat building carpenters are found. This superb boat was built and designed by famous French boat builder Mr. Fabien Blot. In total, it took one and half years to build.
