Chris Columbus, CEO of American Shipbuilding Co., which makes the U.S.
S Star Wars-themed ships, said he expects the first ship to be ready for commercial use by late next year.
Columbum told Axios the first Star Wars ships will likely go into production next year, but he could not say when.
“There are a lot of ships that are in production right now, but we have to make sure we get to the next ones,” Columbos said.
He noted that the first ships would not be in production until the end of 2020 or later, which means the first vessels could be on sale as early as 2020.
The ships are expected to be built in the U of A, but the company plans to move the ships to its own facility.
The first ships will be a “very good representation” of the U and the United States, Columbu said.
Colombus said the first production ships would be about 5,000 to 10,000 feet long.
He said the ships would use a variety of materials, including carbon fiber and carbon fiber composites.
He did not say how many of the ships will use the same carbon fiber composite as the ships used in the original Star Wars movies.
American Shipbuilders CEO Chris Colombum says the ships are built to be as close to the original movie sets as possible.
He says the shipyards are “doing it right” by creating ships that look as close as possible to the sets.
Columbo said the U would like to see the first U.s.
S Ship built in 2019, but it would not get to that point until the 2019 model year, which would take into account the new model year.
“We’re trying to keep the focus on the shipbuilders, not the modelers, who are all building the ships,” Columbo told Axio.
The U. of A is planning to produce about 10,500 U. ships a year by 2040, according to a report from The Associated Press.
Colubruc said the shipyard is not looking at adding more ships until 2019.
He declined to speculate on when the first large U. ship would go into commercial service.
