Here’s our story.
Anthem’s rebellion against sameness represents a fresh approach, a revolutionary design blending the performance of a surf boat with the comfort of a pontoon. Worn out with the expense of multiple boat ownership, increasing maintenance and operating costs and difficult ergonomics, Anthem’s management set out to rethink how to deliver on a performance promise while elevating the boating experience.
Designed, built and tested on Lake Superior, Anthem’s new Tactical Sport Vessels are targeted toward the water sports segment and constructed per military specifications. Evolving in full CAD, Anthem’s design work also included thousands of hours in CFD simulations in creating something special. Anthem’s new Karma 23 aluminum construction is 100% recyclable, has an expected life span of 100+ years and requires far less maintenance than fiberglass boats. Merging the best aspects of tow sports boats, cruising boats, performance boats and family boats into one, Anthem’s concept is unique. With 450 HP engines supplied by PCM, Anthem’s versatility delights wake enthusiasts as well as the cruising crowd.
Understanding that the segment has well entrenched players, Anthem travels a different path. Investing heavily in patents, Anthem has distinctions not found elsewhere. Integrated into the boat construction, Anthem’s V3 Ballast System™ fills and drains in 3 minutes without pumps or gate valves. Vacuum technologies simplify ballast operations, ending pump and plumbing headaches. In addition, the tanks drain fully thus eliminating any winterization requirements while also becoming the most eco friendly system available. Anthem’s Sport Ramp™ reinvents bow access. With a lifting capacity of 1000 pounds, the powered ramp makes access from the water, beach or trailer the easiest. There’s also a telescoping 3 step stainless ladder integrated into the ramp. Anthem’s Aura Design™ concept envelopes a flowing single level, comfortable and spacious layout combined with the performance of a water sports towboat. Huge transom and bow loungers and removable jump seats make a seating environment comfortable and inviting, enticing to the whole tribe. Further, since there are two side doors, a transom walk way and full bow access, there’s no limitation on how or where to get on or off. Anthem is like nothing else on the water today.
Conceived in Minnesota, the birthplace of water sports, Anthem boats are designed and built entirely in the US.
