Our story began nearly four decades ago when our company founder and family patriarch, Bapak Johanes Haris Kencana, was looking for a small boat to help him to better enjoy his love for fishing. Not satisfied with what there was on offer, and certain there were better options outside the traditional wooden boats mostly available in Bali, Pak Haris decided he would take matters into his own hands and build a boat for himself. To do so, he needed a material that is lightweight yet durable; one that is easy to repair and requires low maintenance; a material that is easily shaped and easy to acquire. Naturally, fiberglass would be his material of choice.
Not one to rest on a basic knowledge to complete his endeavor, Pak Haris befriended a respected fiberglass expert from New Zealand, who was, at the time,living in Bali. After months of studying the craft of fiberglass fabrication, Pak Haris finally completed his custom boat. The result was so good that before long, his friends began asking him to manufacture boats for them. And thus, Bali Fiberglass was born.
Bali Fiberglass has since grown to become one of Indonesia’s leading fiberglass manufactures with a range of products that spans across multiple industries, including marine and boating, hotel and hospitality, infrastructure and architecture, and artistic design.
Our headquarters and manufacturing facilities are conveniently located a stone’s throw away from the waterfront village of Sanur, Bali, with direct marine access to popular mooring and rest-over spots Serangan Island and Benoa Harbor.
