The 38m Phinisi Yacht Keel Laying Ceremony

November 14th, 2011 - by Nino Krisnan

On the good day of 9 November 2011, a momentous event took place in Sangkulirang, East Kalimantan.  It is the tradition of the Bugis Konjo builders to cherish the nascent ship and celebrate its building process by conducting the keel laying ceremony for every phinisi they build, including our baby, the 38 m Bugis traditional phinisi yacht. The ceremony was a party for everyone: owner, master builder, the builders and their families, and the BAYachts team. We had great fun and brought home a memorable experience.

The ceremony was held after all the dimensions and measurement final check was completed, prior to the erection of the stem and horn timber. Precision has always been one of Haji Abdul Wahab’s (the master builder) and the BAYachts’s main considerations.

Although there is much to be done, it was good to see that the first step of the construction went well.
