Description
Savor the charcoal-grilled seafood, steak and other specialties of Al Boom. Diners will want to experience this unique dining venue aboard a traditional Arabic dhow. Beautiful teak with gold-leaf accents gives this landlocked vessel the atmosphere of luxury sailing. Complete your VIP experience with expertly brewed coffee in the Captain's Diwaniya. Modeled after a family's maritime legacy Conceived and undertaken by Husain Marafie, Al Boom restaurant is named for the largest class of dhow, the traditional wooden vessel historically sailed on the Arabian seas. Marafie modeled the vessel from the 1915 blueprints of his grandfather’s Mohammedi I, which was the largest dhow of its time. With meticulous care, shipwrights and master craftsmen constructed the vessel by hand in Kozhikode (Calicut), India. The task required 17,500 cubic feet of fine teak, 8,800 handmade iron nails and 2.5 tons of copper, and this tremendous undertaking represents a total of 35,000 work hours. It took 3 years
