The Spirit tenders are exclusively built by Nauta Maritiem Thailand a large shipyard in Thailand, located at about an hour’s drive from Bangkok. A team of professional shipyard workers apply their craftsmanship and utmost care in building these tenders under the supervision of an English foreman.
A few years ago, Nauta Maritiem received a drawing by email from an Italian designer based in Thailand. His boat design proposal was that of the Spirit 25, which instantly hit the bullseye. It had everything one could wish for in a tender. Enthusiastically, Nauta Maritiem travelled to the Far East to discuss prospects of setting up a dealership. As a result, a partnership was quickly established and several tender models have since already been developed.
Nauta Maritiem’s team of shipbuilders is composed of local professionals who have gained extensive experience in wood and polyester construction. The British foreman supervising the team of 20 men has over 25 years of experience in polyester construction techniques. Using his expertise to train the men, he also could count on the existing expertise of a highly skilled local workforce to form an expert team of shipbuilders.
