Shipbuilding has been a skill humans have been passing down since pre-history. There is archaeological evidence that indicates humans arrived on Borneo from the Asian mainland almost 120,000 years ago. This age old skill has helped generations of humans that relied on the sea and their ships to survive and flourish.


Modern Shipwrights have to combine techniques from a range of disciplines including: physics, chemistry, math and engineering to design, fabricate and maintain modern sea vessels and their components. To carry out the work also takes a lot of craftsmanship and skill that is only learned from years of working on marine vessels.
