After the 3 month presence of 70 Sunreef Power charter yacht DAMRAK II in the Middle East, the shipyard decided to open in 2013 the first office in Dubai (UAE) which was the key step in spreading the brand and product awareness in this area. At the beginning of 2014 the company presented the most outstanding luxurious catamaran models including 90 Sunreef Power yacht and Sunreef 165 ULTIMATE yacht at the Kuwait Yacht Show and Dubai International Boat Show. Furthermore in March 2014 Sunreef Yachts organized a series of exclusive events held in 4 locations in the Gulf region during which the futuristic trimaran concept 210 Power Trimaran was presented – with 64 m in length and almost 1000 m2 living space that makes it the biggest vessel of this type on the market.
