The third annual Abu Dhabi Yacht Show kicks off next weekend, March 24th through the 26th. This show is undoubtedly one the most exclusive events in the global yachting industry. The yacht show is invitation-only, as it will feature the world’s most exceptional power and sailing vessels with price tags upwards of $100 million. Abu Dhabi has become one of the premier destinations for the elite to play, as well as a breeding ground for the megayacht industry for buyers and builders alike. Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the UAE, and is situated on a T-shaped island that juts into the Persian Gulf, a location synonymous with yachting. According to sail-world.com, “The Middle East has always been a key market in terms of superyacht buyers. With some of the largest and most impressive vessels now being built in the UAE, the industry is coming to the clients. It’s an exciting time of UAE shipyards.”
The ADYS caters to the superyacht industry and will also be showcasing innovations in the marine industry, including yacht builders, interior designers, naval architects and of course, luxury goods and services. It only makes sense that this year’s yacht show will be held in conjunction with the season opener of the FIA GT1 World Championship, motor racing’s most outstanding event. The 2011 ADYS at the Yas Marina is sure to be a glamorous weekend, exhibiting the finest yachts and accessories. Abu Dhabi’s future as the international hub of the megayacht community looks promising, as it continues to lure in the elite.
