We are confident that this project is workable and has many advantageous to the users as well as for the fishing industry in Sri Lanka.

Why Steel?

In general steel is one of the safest material with its higher yield strength and higher ultimate strength. It is an excellent structural material, being both strong and easily fabricated using readily available technology. The strength and durability are qualities that are naturally associated with the steel.

The vessel built in steel hull has the ability withstand a coalition with unforeseen objects and survivability in extreme sea conditions. Steel will bend or stretch on impact, which will allow you to continue on your way, unlike some of the other materials used for similar boats. If designed well, a steel boat will be beautiful, will perform well, will be very comfortable, and will provide the peace of mind on the water.
