Domingo Amado Frojn, which had a shipyard in San
Cosme de Outeiro, in the cove of Broa, in the Barbanza,
also in Galicia. Astilleros Amado S.L., focuses primarily on
building and repair of wooden craft, highlighting the

water lines and trace them with gage, two or more
longitudinal, which used to check the fine bow and
stern. Used car to bounce and beach, although we
have previously used channel ensebada and eels
in the bilge, down 5th. Relatively recently we
released an additional ship, adjacent to our facilities
as always, we have dedicated to the production of
pleasure boats and fishing GRP, where we built,

Why are they a resource for

Noias estuary?
They are a resource for Noias estuary because they
help the shellfish and fishing. Noia estuary is well
known for the quality of its marine products.
without the help of the shipyard, when it comes to
creating boats for the collection of such products it
would be impossible to exploit these shipyards,
therefore, help the economy of this area.
