Giant yacht in Beypore waits for voyage to Qatar
Kozhikode: A giant yacht which is known as 'Uru' in Kerala is all set to venture into the sea from Pattarmad in Chaliyam after the pandemic. This giant yacht is 130 feet long and 27 feet wide. PI Ahmed Koya & Co constructed this 'Uru' for a private businessman in Qatar.
The yacht had to be released two years back but construction was halted due to the Covid crisis. It was completed in a year and a half by 17 workers under Vadakkepatt Surendran, a traditional yacht maker in Beypore.
The company MD Hashim said that the remaining design works of the yacht will be completed from Qatar. Another giant yacht is set to launch in January from here.
Meanwhile, the work of the rope-tied yacht for the World Cup-Football Championship in Qatar is in its final stage. PI Ahmed Koya & Co. has so far produced over 200 yachts, both large and small.
