From the Founder's Desk
I, Capt. Hitesh K. Trehon, proudly established Waterways Shipyard Pvt Ltd in 1982. Guided by my vision and with the invaluable partnership of my family, I opened our shipyard in the picturesque and serene landscapes of Udupi, Karnataka, in the year 2009. In 1987, we took a significant step forward, registering the company as a Pvt. Ltd. entity under the esteemed Industry Act, solidifying our commitment to excellence.

I achieved a remarkable career milestone in 2014 when I received the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award. The Governor of Goa honored me with this prestigious award on the auspicious occasion of National Maritime Day as a testimonial to my unrelenting dedication and significant contributions to the maritime industry. It stands as a brilliant example of the unwavering quest for excellence that has characterized my tenure, and one that I envisioned for the company.
In 2021, I gracefully passed the baton of leadership to my capable son, Anoop Trehon, as I embarked on a well-deserved retirement. With unwavering faith in his abilities and a shared passion for maritime craftsmanship, I am confident that he will continue our legacy of unrivaled dedication and unwavering commitment to maritime excellence.
Waterways Shipyard Pvt Ltd stands as a testament to our shared vision, perseverance, and relentless pursuit of excellence. Our shipyard, nurtured with care and dedication, has left an indelible mark on the vast expanse of the maritime realm. It is with immense pride and gratitude that I reflect upon the transformative impact our shipyard has had, and will continue to have, contributing to the growth and development of the maritime industry.
With the winds of opportunity at your sails, I offer my heartfelt wishes for smooth seas and favorable winds. May your future endeavors be filled with success, growth, and fulfillment. Embrace each new venture with the same passion and resilience that has carried us through the years.
