Imagine a 200-ton, handcrafted wooden sailboat that took four years to build in a jungle in southern India. This ship will never set sail. The mast, sails and rigging are all elaborate decorations like a Hollywood movie set.
Gilles Macé, the owner and director of the ship and restaurant Le Dhow, knew he wanted to create something different.
“When you say ‘I’m going to make a restaurant on a boat in Morocco,’ people can’t understand what you’re saying,” Macé said.
Moored on the river between Rabat and Sale and measuring an impressive 47 x 10 meters, Le Dhow stands out.
