About Ken and Tan Sdn Bhd


Ken And Tan Sdn Bhd was established as a boat building and manufacturing company in August 22, 1996 in a backyard located at No.1, Spg. 538 in Kg Kapok that served as a factory site.

Now in its 20th years, the company has grown from strength to strength, expanding operations with a purchase of a factory building worth BND 0.5M located at Lot 37 in the Salar Industrial Estate in Muara and converted it into a boat factory.

Under the leadership of Mr. S. Y. Tan, the company’s Managing Director, who has 30 years experienced in boat building, it has become one of the biggest boat companies in Brunei Darussalam.

Mr. Tan himself is the boat designer and started building the boats himself. Boating is his major hobby and this is manifested in his love of boats. In fact, he has 5 different sizes and models of boats for his personal use. 

Every new boat model or size built is initially tested and sea trialed for stability, speed, performance and durability before given the seal of approval for further production and sale. Every year, Ken And Tan comes up with at least 3 to 4 new boats of different models and sizes.

Ken And Tan Sdn Bhd’ specializes in other marine related areas too. For every size of boat it makes, comes a trailer that goes with the boat. Stainless steel welding of fuel tanks, railings, ski poles, awning and canopy frames tops standards. Outboard engines, all kinds of boat and marine accessories are supplied upon order. Boat seats and benches could be custom made according to customers’ specifications.
