About Us

Kochi, or specially described as the Queen of the Arabian Sea, has been drawing traders and explorers to its shores for over 600 years. The place is an unlikely blend of medieval Portugal, Holland and an English village grafted onto the tropical Malabar Coast. Mainland Ernakulum is the hectic transport and cosmopolitan hub of Kochi, but is thick with the smell of the past with some beautiful islands , which are linked by a network of ferries and bridges.

Aismar Boat Builders is an independent leading boat building unit based in ‘Ponnarimangalam’, Bolghatty Island, Kochi, with facilities ranging from docking and dry-docking yard to jetty, shelter and all infrastructure facilities like Electricity, fluent raw material availability, expert labor force, trial run facility etc. The main unit is situated in an Island, two kilometers from ‘Marine Drive’ of Cochin City. Among the two sister concerns, one is located in the same Island and the other one at an Island 5 kms from the main unit, which is owned and controlled by Aismar Boat Builders. An added feather to the flock is providing service to the tourists and visitors. The group owns three Luxury Tourist powerboats for the development of tourism approved by Cochin Port Trust and other Government agencies.

The units are easily accessible to any authority or person at any time to verify or inspect the work, thus maintaining complete transparency. Aismar products are guaranteed for the period of one year from the date of sales for any manufacturing defect.
