The largest wooden ship in the UAE
A ship from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has set a new record for being the largest wooden ship in the world.
According to Arab media reports, the wooden ship named ‘Obaid’ is attributed to an Emirati citizen named Juma bin Majid Al-Falasi who was a leader of Emirati sailors and was known for his boat building.
The report states that the ship is considered to be the largest wooden ship in the Guinness Book of World Records. It is 91.47 meters long and 20.41 meters wide. The ship had been under construction for many years.
The head of the shipbuilding company says his goal was to pay homage to his father by including him in the Guinness Book of World Records.
