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
