Dubai is undoubtedly making a mark on the maritime leisure industry in the region and worldwide.
The 26th Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS) which started on February 28 to go on until March 3 is proof of the growth that the industry and the country has made. This is hardly surprising given the passion and innovation the country has put into the luxury and marine leisure industry for over two and half decades.
According to a report published by the World of Yachts in February, UAE is ranked 9th in the world’s superyachts in production in 2018, with 14 new builds with a combined length of 611 metres being manufactured in the country. With the global ocean industry expected to hit 3 trillion dollars by 2030, marine and coastal tourism is expected to contribute a quarter of this.
Despite bad weather, we still have interested visitors to the show and our booth

These awards are to the nautical industry, what the Oscars are to cinema. The cherished titles of European Yacht of the Year 2018 and European Powerboat of the Year 2018 were awarded on Saturday 20 January at the “Flagship Night” organized for the Boot Düsseldorf boat show.
More than 500 people attended this international award-giving night, where journalists, press attachés and exhibitors mix with each other every year.
A few days after receiving an award in London, the Figaro 3 was elected “European Yacht of the Year” in the “Special Yacht” category. Gianguido Girotti Managing Director of the BENETEAU brand received the prize.
Well done to the Figaro 3, the first production one-design monohull!
