Superyacht Dealers To Flock To Dubai

The organizers of the 21st Dubai International Boat Show have confirmed that the event will play host to nineteen of the world's most luxurious superyachts, with 40% more superyachts expected to be showcased than at last year's event.

More than 750 companies and brands from 49 countries have already confirmed that they will attend the event, which will run between March 5-9, 2013.

Eight country pavilions have been booked this year, including one from the state of Florida due to strong demand from companies based in the United States.

The show will include numerous seminars and workshops, providing an overview of the latest industry trends, technologies and regulations, as well as a number of business-to-business networking opportunities.

A number of high profile shipyards have confirmed that they will be exhibiting models at the event, including: AMELS, ART Marine, Benetti, Fincantieri, Gulf Craft, Hessen Yachts, KaiserWerft, Lurssen, Mondo Marine, Oceanco, Princess Yachts, Palmer Johnson, Sanlorenzo, Sea Pros, Sunseeker, Trinity Yachts and Westport.

Erwin Bamps, Chief Operating Officer at Gulf Craft said: "The Dubai International Boat Show continues to be one of the most important showcases of our capabilities - especially in the luxury superyacht category - within one of the most significant global markets for larger-scaled yachts. We have a number of exciting concepts to debut across our entire product range. With encouraging signs of recovery across the luxury industry in the past year we are very positive about the potential the boat show presents this year."

The Dubai International Boat Show has grown substantially in recent years on the back of massive regional demand. One third of the world's largest superyachts are owned by Gulf Cooperation Council nationals, and the Middle East has quickly established itself as one of the fastest growing leisure marine markets.
