Colombo Dockyard’s shipbuilding activities commenced in 1974 with the construction of small tug boats, patrol boats, and barges which are now an important revenue source for the company.

The company has been successful in securing orders from both local and overseas clients by competing with leading shipbuilders worldwide and is now in an enviable position rivalling shipbuilding yards that specialize in the construction of high powered and complex tug boats as well as aluminium hulled high speed boats which are a part of our wide spectrum of shipbuilding capacity.

We have been actively involved in building a spectrum of vessels with varied characteristics for both local and international clients.

The company’s ability to carry out the construction of these vessels to meet the requirements stipulated by stringent international Classification Societies, whilst customizing the vessel to surpass all stated and implied requirements of the customer, has paved the way for the company’s stupendous growth in the Shipbuilding Sector.
