The largest and the most prestigious yacht event in the region, the Dubai International Boat Show 2022, ended on the 13th of March after a five-day-long grand demonstration of the maritime lifestyle of the UAE. The boat show was graced by over 400 boats and yachts to the new venue – Dubai Habour. It signified the return of yacht tourism to the region, and the emphasis was primarily on the growing interest of people in buying, selling and chartering in the yachting sector.
Royal Yachts made a remarkable presence at Dubai International Boat Show 2022, held between the 9th and 13th of March at Dubai Habour. About 260 visitors registered with Royal yachts at the event, and an average of about 1000 visitors to the event passed by its stand. That was an outstanding performance after two long years of disengagement and apprehensions.
Mohamed Al Zaabi (Entrepreneur and Founder of Royal Yachts) looked very satisfied as he put forth, “The atmosphere at the event was very enthusiastic and emotional, as it was organised after a long gap due to COVID protocols. Finally, people are back to business after 2 years of uncertainty, which was the most crucial factor in the event. After two years of moving at a snail’s speed, the marine industry is in no mood to compromise on any aspect, and it was very much visible in the extensive range of marine products projections and presentations. Though events were absent, we all were very hopeful of coming back with much more enthusiasm. That proves how much we were missing these events and how passionate the industry people are.”
The event had many show stoppers and among them was the presence of the world-renowned designer Cristiano Gatto. He visited the Royal Yachts stand, which was a delightful opportunity for Royal Yachts to discuss futuristic yachting design and where green energy is leading the future of the yacht industry.
It was also a great honour for Royal Yachts to receive HH Al-Sheikh Khalid Bin Sultan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and HH Al-Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saqr Al Qasim in their stand, present at the event.
The show concluded with the intent to build a conducive environment for the marine community in the region and increase its ability to attract a broader and more diverse buyer base. Dubai International Boat Show 2022 played a crucial role in allowing buyers and industry enthusiasts to present their own marine products and appreciate the offerings of yachts, boats, and accessories demonstrated by others.
