Northwest Marine Lanka to construct new boatyard at Dikkowita Fisheries HarbourView(s):
Northwest Marine Lanka this week commenced the construction of its new boat building facility at the Dikkowita Fisheries Harbour complex in Wattala.
Northwest Marine Lanka currently manufactures large commercial fiberglass fishing vessels, but with this new boat yard, aims to expand into the manufacture and export of luxury yachts and speed craft, entering a new era in leisure and tourism craft. The company, which commenced manufacturing and exports in 2008 intends actively promoting nautical tourism in Sri Lanka, it said in a media release.
Chairman of Northwest Marine Lanka Jagath Udayakumara unveiled his idea of establishing a training centre for apprentices to build fiberglass naval craft within the Northwest Marine Lanka Dikkowita Harbour boatyard. “This will add employment opportunities for our skilled boat builders not just locally but overseas as well,” he said. He added that Northwest Marine Lanka is collaborating with an Omani partner to launch a boat building facility on Masirah Island in Oman, next year. Currently, boats built by Northwest Marine Lanka are being exported to Mauritius, Seychelles, Comoros, Oman, Senegal and the Maldives.
The company which began operations in the Dankotuwa IDB Zone is recognised as a registered exporter of fiberglass vessels and has been lauded for introducing new technology to boat building in Sri Lanka. Northwest Marine Lanka’s total value of exports since 2008 has been US$5 million.
