Custom-built Traditional Dhows

 

 

Towing to Kochi & loading on ship

 

At client's destination

   

 

This is a project for a French client of ours wanting an exclusive, dhow restaurant.   The construction was executed in collaboration with an associate, combining our expertise and their yard facility.  The dhow hull is 44m long x 10m wide x 3m high and has a capacity to seat over 300 guests. 

 

The rugged, traditional wooden dhow, that has for centuries been the main means of sea trading in the region around India, the Arabian peninsula and eastern Africa, is presently finding increasingly popular use as dinner cruise boat, liveaboard, diveboat and theme restaurant. 

 

The dhows, whose origins are Indian, are built by traditional craftsmen under the direction of a chief mestri (traditional shipwright) in the same manner they were built over two or three hundred years ago.  They are built not from paper or software plans but according to calculations straight out of the chief mestri's head.  Our chief mestri is one of the most senior and accomplished in the construction of this boat type. 

 

Air-conditioning of the lounge on main deck and the hall below as well as furnishing in theme decor was done at owner's destination.
