The formation of Gulf Craft came much before when the company was founded in 1982. The people of the United Arab Emirates enjoyed the sea and earned their living from pearl diving and fishing. the need to have high quality, robust and performance boats were essential in the Emirates. Importing boats was costly and proved to be very challenging to maintain, which is when the shipyard's current chairman, Mohammed H. Alshaali along with his 2 brothers and mutual friend Dr. Mohammed Hamdan Alshamsi decided to form Gulf Craft.
OUR SUCCESS STORY
Gulf Craft has increased its workforce of fewer than 100 employees when it was founded in 1982 to more than 1,300 personnel today.
