Since hundreds of years the Omani ship carpenters build wooden dhows. Formerly the Giants sailed across distant oceans, today they are a status symbol of sultans and millionaires. Only a few fishermen and forwarders use the dhows. In the past they were also built in the United Arab Emirates. Today there is hardly a dhow yard on the Arabian peninsula, but you can find one in the Omani port of Sur.
