This week, Dubai is hosting the International Boat Show, and it kicked off with a great start. Merchants were selling everything from shark repellent to boat houses and police boats.
More than 400 small vessels and over 25 superyachts are on display at the Dubai International Marine club. The Silver Zwei, a superyacht, traveled from Australa in just eleven days. One of the major attractions of the week’s events, this vessel reaches a top speed of 27 knots and is 73m long.
This particular show is a favorite for local yacht sellers, although it closely follows the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show which, despite many visitors, had very few sales.
A major draw to the show besides the superyachts were the pleasure yachts and fishing boats, which are more affordable selections of vessels on display at the show.
By the time the show hits its end on Sunday, it is expected that nearly 100,000 visitors will attend the show.
For those in the southeast of the United States, Atlantic Yacht and Ship will be attending the Palm Beach International Boat Show at the end of March, with many yachts and vessels on display.
Atlantic Yacht & Ship, a south Floridian company of yacht brokers, is located just minutes from the Fort Lauderdale / Hollywood International Airport, in the heart of the “Venice of America” and yachting capital of the world of Fort Lauderdale.
Suppliers of power and custom quality motor yachts, Atlantic has over 50 years of continuous service in the international yachting industry, and is committed to offering great product knowledge and close attention to detail.
