Of course, Phage need not even mention the challenges of building said ship.
If it has the potential mentioned, even if you could keep it from blowing up mid-construction with all the matter around it, it would try to run
Thrusters would be ill used as, if you have enough to counteract the effect repelling you to steer, you might as well use that to propel the ship in
the first place.
Again, matter matter everywhere. The ship would blow itself to bits.
Barring that and any other basic hurdles the main issue that pops to mind - Who would pilot it? We're made of matter. Take an average person and
have them board it and boom, you just took one human's worth of material out of your ship and expended them both as energy.
But the true crux of it, if you can make that much antimatter to begin with, matter+antimatter is the most efficient power generation known so I think
we'd rather figure out a way to use that to power the ship than the any passive anti-gravity effect.
