At the Mauritanian government’s request, Yamaha Motor provided technical assistance to enable local manufacture of fishing boats. This included detailed plans for the size/layout of a factory, proposals for all necessary manufacturing equipment and tools, supply of the all-essential hull molds, Mauritanian technician training in Japan and on-site boatbuilding instruction. The first boat (14 m / 5 t) was launched in April 2014 and is designed for a variety of fishery like catching octopus. Planned production is two boats per month, aiming to create jobs and further develop Mauritanian fishery.
