(MENAFN -Khaleej Times) Dubai International Boat Show 2014, opening on March 4 at Dubai International Marine Club, will have on display 430 boats valued at Dh1

A star attraction is the largest-ever superyacht. Organisers have confirmed a total of 30 luxury boats exceeding 21 metres, which include 19 superyachts.


The 22nd edition of the region’s leading leisure marine event, organised by Dubai World Trade Centre, will line up 42 global and regional premiers and 750 exhibiting companies and brands. The five-day event is expected to draw 26,000 visitors from 70 countries, organisers said in a statement.

“Reflecting growing international interest in the Middle East as a key maritime market, over 70 per cent of exhibiting companies come from overseas, highlighting the show’s international status. Participating exhibitors hail from more than 50 countries including the Maldives and the Philippines for the first time,” it said.


The 88.5-metre-long superyacht Nirvana, built by Oceanco and exhibited by Edmiston, is one of the world’s top 50 longest superyachts and the exhibition’s largest-ever superyacht to date.


Nirvana features two helipads, six decks, a stage for live performances, a 3D cinema and more. It has a range of 6,800 nautical miles, a maximum speed of 19.5 knots and can accommodate 12 guests in 6 cabins with 27 onboard crew.


Plans for the world’s largest and fasst all-aluminium yacht, the Silver-Fast, which is currently under construction, will be announced by UAE-based BehneMar Yachting Consultancy.


Boat building is a key driver of growth in the maritime industry, as UAE luxury yacht builders plan to build 18 superyachts – those 24 metres and longer – exceeding 850 metres in total, as reported by US-based ShowBoats International Global Order Book 2014.


The definitive guide to the world’s luxury superyacht industry ranked the UAE as the world’s ninth most productive manufacturers of superyachts.


Market research undertaken by Dubai Maritime City Authority reveals that Dubai’s maritime sector is a major income generator for the Emirate, contributing Dh14.4 billion to Dubai’s GDP and supporting more than 75,000 job opportunities. “Dubai is set to become the world’s leisure maritime capital, thanks to modern marina facilities, strong maritime tourism infrastructure, and increasingly-knowledgeable boat-buying customers. Dubai cementing its status as a hub for mega-events is making a major impact on the leisure maritime market, with millions of visitors wanting to experience the UAE from the water,” said Saeed Hareb, vice-president, Dubai International Marine Club and Senior Advisor, Dubai International Boat Show.


According to research by ART Marine Marinas Division, the UAE currently has 30 marinas and 4,816 berths, and 64 marinas and 12,629 berths in the GCC overall, with the UAE accounting for 38 per cent of the entire GCC marina berthing market.
