1736 MARINE CONSTRUCTIONS
The Group’s first venture, over 250 years ago, was in the marine construction industry. The Wadia’s were marine designers and master builders par excellence where they built 355 vessels that ploughed international waters, over their 160 years of existence, including the first ships constructed for the British Navy outside England. It was on one such ship, the ‘Minden’, that the American National Anthem was composed. On another Wadia-built deck, the ‘HMS Cornwallis’, the Treaty of Nanking, ceding Hong Kong to England, was signed. The second oldest ship in the world, ‘HMS Trincomalee’ which even today is afloat and intact in Hartlepool, is yet another marvel of the Wadias’ shipbuilding prowess.
