About us

Astilleros Cabrales (Cabrales Boatyard) is a family-owned shipbuilding company in Northwestern Mexico with more than 70 years of experience in constructing, repairing, and modifying marine vessels.


Founded in 1946 by Salvador Cabrales Montijo, we initially focused on wooden boats before transitioning to steel construction in 1972. Our boatyard has built over 600 vessels for fishing and pleasure, serving clients worldwide, including Indonesia, the United States, Costa Rica, Suriname, and Panama, as well as major Mexican fishing ports.


With efficient infrastructure and facilities, including a ramp and a Travelift crane, Cabrales Boatyard can accommodate boats up to 300 tons. Our subsidiary, Pesquera Punta Peñasco, operates modern steel vessels ranging from 85 to 106 feet for shrimp fishing.
