We are working closely with all stakeholders to provide luxury marine lifestyle services with industry expertise, to build on Dubai’s international reputation for world-class superyacht and marine services.”
Captain Tony Crabbe, chief executive officer of event organisers Fabulous Yachts, added, “The UAE is well placed to become a desirable winter destination for superyachts. What is now needed is the collective will and determination to develop a positive regulatory environment and a desire to welcome these yachts to our shores.”
