A joint venture deal between Al Shaali Marine Dubai and Coastline Investments Pvt Ltd in December 2006 led to the establishment of Al Shaali Marine Maldives Pvt Ltd, the boat building firm that swiftly rose to the top tiers of the local marine industry.

Possessing a strong, positive reputation that culminated from a combination of top quality delivery and customer satisfaction, Al Shaali Marine Maldives follows in the footsteps of its UAE-based parent company, itself hailed as the pioneering manufacturer of fibreglass boats and yachts in the Middle-East.

The company is the ultimate go-to for all marine vessel-related needs. The capable teams behind Al Shaali Marine craft every type of vessel in the Maldives, from diving boats and specially-made watercraft for resorts, to speedboat ferries and water sports equipment.

Along with flexible rates, clients can also place orders for customised vessels.

Al Shaali Marine’s impressive repertoire is further fleshed out with services such as hull and engine repairs, welding fabrication, seat manufacture, interior and exterior design of vessels, and paint jobs.

It maintains the quality of its crafts by utilising the latest state-of-the-art resources and materials available on the international market.

“Although some boatyards opt for ordinary cranes to launch their vessels, Al Shaali Marine uses only boat hoists (trowel lifts) and specialised machinery for the task”, said an official of the company, noting that the use of ordinary machinery could cause damage to the vessels.

As a result of its unyielding efforts, Al Shaali Marine was consecutively conferred the accolades of ‘Best Production’ and ‘Dockyard/Slipway of the Year’ at the 2017 and 2018 Maldives Boating Awards. The company was also awarded ‘Best Boat Design of the Year’ in 2017.
