Pinetree created a documentary video about Dhow boats for the Obaid Juma Bin Suloom establishment. Dhows are traditional wooden boats built and used by Arabs for fishing and trading across the seas.
Established in 1972, this shipbuilding company has built many of the finest dhows thats have graced the high seas. Their dhows have even crossed the Cape of Good Hope to reach up to Angola in West Africa. Today you can see these spectacular looking traditional dhows travelling side by side with modern yachts in the Dubai creeks. Continuing on with Middle East’s seafaring tradition that dates back centuries, these dhows continue to make their commercial journeys from the shores of gulf countries to Asia and Africa. While most of the traditional boat builders have turned to other businesses, the Obeid Jumaa Al Gholami family has brilliantly blended their traditional boat building skills with modern manufacturing methods and cutting-edge technology to create more demand for these marvels of craftsmanship.
