Launching to sea is the naval ceremony where a ship with a ready hull is "launched to sea", the ship, on that occasion, receiving its official name. Launch is the critical moment for any vessel. The action requires caution and preparation, requiring many previous calculations so that a premature launch does not occur and the vessel has to return to the construction stage. In general, the launching ceremony is a festive occasion full of symbolism, in keeping with the naval traditions of the building country.
