UAE named among World's Top 10 super yacht-building nations in the 2014 Global Order Book

The United Arab Emirates has been named among the list of the world's Top 10 super yacht-building nations in the recently released 2014 Global Order Book, a report issued annually by the Boat International Group, claiming the 9th place with 18 yachts over 24m currently under construction in the country.

Enabling the UAE to sail into this prestigious listing with 15 of the country's 18 super yachts on its order books is UAE-based yacht builder Gulf Craft, which also clinched a top 10 ranking among the world's super yacht-building shipyards.

Mohammed Hussein Al Shaali, Chairman of Gulf Craft, has congratulated President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Their Highnesses Supreme Council Members and Rulers of Emirates, on the achievement.

He noted that the company has achieved stellar performance thanks to its persistent efforts, great ambitions and the significant international flexibility the UAE provides to develop the industry.

'The government's economic policy and its strong support for entrepreneurship have played vital role to enable the company maintain leadership in the super yacht market locally and internationally,' he added.

The company has a wider super yachts product offering with eight different models available between 24m and 50m. This has enabled it to not just increase global market share in the super yacht category and far outperform our peers, but also grow its brand equity and visibility in mature international yachting markets such as Europe.

The company has made significant investments in recent years in the development of facilities and know-how and this has paid back in the form of a growing global appreciation of the high standards of quality and innovation we bring to super yachts. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
