FOR one of the highest quality and standard boats visit Lal's Boat Building Company Ltd today.

Over the years the company has moved from strength to strength and this was evident through its production line that has been rolling out custom- made and traditional water-going craft without fail.

And its managing director Ashok Kumar said what made Lal's Boat Building Co Ltd different from the rest was the fact they not only constructed boats but also supplied other marine-related equipment as well.

He said they built boats to any specification provided by customers and were sole distributors of Yamaha outboard engines if customers opted for that particular brand.

"Every vessel we make is made to the highest quality and standards, we do not compromise on quality because we know how important it is that customers board our boats with complete trust that they are travelling in comfort and safety," Mr Kumar said.

"When we sell a boat, we sell it as a kit. That includes lifejackets, flares, a fire extinguisher torch and other safety equipment.

That is how seriously we take safety at sea."

He added a dose of experience gained under the guidance of his grandfather, Lal Chand, and son, Avneel Kumar, has taken the Velovelo boat production facility to even greater heights.

Those interested in a custom-made boat built to the highest quality and meets all safety standards can contact Lal's Boat Builders on or telephone number 9216250 or 9331842. Lal's Boat Building Company Ltd is a MSAF approved boat building company.
