Australian shipbuilder wants to build cruiser yard in Da Nang

After conducting a survey in the central city of Da Nang, director general of Corsair Marine International Company under the Australian SeaWind Group Mike Rees expressed desire to invest in a cruiser building yard there.

An announcement from the city People’s Committee on October 2 said that the yard will build 70 cruisers from composite material and carbon fiber a year. It will also supply repair and upgrade services to high class pleasure boats.

The US$20 million work is expected to make the city for development of sea amusement industry, and contribute in boosting shipbuilding and support industries in Vietnam, said Mr. Rees.

The SeaWind Group provides 60-100 cruisers to the US, European and Australian markets annually. In Vietnam, its five cruisers are operating for resorts in Nha Trang City.
