Dhows are integral part of Kuwait’s culture and heritage. The starting age of using the dhows is clouded. Among all the different types of great sailing ships in the world, the dhow holds the longest continuous tradition of commercial seafaring. Dhows were mainly used for trading cargo, pearl diving, fishing and other more uses.
Kuwait's fleet of dhows was one of the most impressive rights until the development of the oil industry of Kuwait. Kuwait's economy depended mainly on three maritime activities: trading voyages, shipbuilding, and pearl diving.
