The Boatmakers…

by Reedz on January 5, 2007


Was in Tutong this morning getting my fix of Soto Hj Tuah after which I dropped by an old friend’s fibreglass fabrication workshop. I hadn’t been there in some time and it looks like business is humming away very nicely.
Seri Melati Enterprise has been around for quite some time, since 1977. It started as a small boat-making workshop catering to the local fishing community and has since grown into quite a sizeable company producing boats in all shapes in sizes. They’ve even launched their own range of fibreglass boats under the brand of AMIRA.

Aside from boats, these guys also fabricate all sorts of fibreglass items like fish-tanks, tables, slides, planter-boxes, and even giant teapots like the one at one of the roundabouts in Kuala Belait. They are also well-known for fabricating and installing automotive body kits.
My first attempt at HDR imaging
Very cool… If you have a sudden urge to buy a custom-made fishing or leisure boat, or even to pimp your ride with a custom body-kit, give them a call at 4222224.

Hi Bro! Me and the wife went 2 TTG to search for it a while back but failed. Just a week ago, a colleague of mine started asking around the office about it too but he got struck out as well.

Can you post the gerai’s address pls?? Thanks!
