Jalboot Pearling Boat

This was a popular type of vessel in the pearling fleet of Kuwait. She is called Jalboot and is distinguished by the stern which is at almost a right angle to the keel. Both sails and sweeps are used to sail her. This Jalboot was built in 1957 by Ali Abdul-Rassoul for the late Sheikh Jaber Al-Ali Al-Sabah, who used her for a few pearling trips before presenting her as a memorial of the pearling days of Kuwait. Before being put on display here, she was sailed by Kuwaiti mariners extensively over the Gulf.
