The Dubai International Boat Show has seen a 40 percent rise in the number of superyachts to be exhibited at this year’s show, organisers confirmed.
The 21st Dubai International Boat Show, which takes place each year at Dubai International Marine Club - Mina Seyahi, will showcase 19 of the world's most luxurious superyachts, when it takes place in March.
"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,” said Erwin Bamps, chief operating officer at Gulf Craft.
“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."
