Following the successful debut last year of the Middle East’s only ‘Pre-Owned Boat Show’, which attracted over 5,000 visitors, organisers Dubai Creek Marina along with title sponsor MIDEX AIRLINES have announced that this year’s show will be held from November 17th to 19th, at the award- winning Dubai Creek Marina.
The only event of its kind in the region, the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show brings together sellers and buyers of pre-owned yachts from around the region for a ‘one stop-shop’, providing yachting enthusiasts value and choice in a fun-filled family setting featuring entertainment for adults and kids alike.
Speaking about his expectations for this year’s event, Mustafa Al Hashimi, Club Manager of Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club said; “Based on the high turnout and success of last year’s show, along with the increased demand we have seen by buyers and interest from sponsors leading up to this year’s event, we expect this year’s event to be even bigger and better. We are accommodating this growth in demand by increasing the space available for boats on water and land to over 75 this year. This may go up further still depending on demand. The marina related retail area has also been significantly expanded, seeing an increase of 20%, covering everything from navigation units to boat engines.
With MIDEX Airlines on board signing as title sponsors for a further three years, and key partners such as Arabian Scandinavian Insurance Co. (ASCANA) on site to provide alternative modes of insurance and Gulf Finance on hand to provide marine finance for buyers, customers looking to purchase a pre-owned vessel are in a position to ‘buy it and sail it’ on the same day.
Commenting on their new long-term commitment to the event, which sees MIDEX Airlines extend their title sponsorship to 2013, Jassim Al Bastaki, Director General, MIDEX Airlines said; “After seeing how successful The Dubai Pre-Owned Boat show was last year, we knew immediately that we had to make this a mainstay in Dubai’s annual events calendar. Our three year commitment reiterates our belief that The Pre-Owned Boat Show is not just an excellent opportunity to purchase affordable vessels and equipment but is also increasing accessibility to this wondering pastime. It’s truly a celebration of life on the water for the entire family all enjoyed on the beautiful edges of Dubai Creek.”
Combining great deals on pre-owned vessels of all sizes (from 27 feet up to 165 feet) from world renowned manufacturers, alongside leading marine traders covering finance, insurance, accessories, maintenance services and supplies, the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show offers absolutely everything an aspiring or current boat owner could possibly need in one convenient location.
Managed by Dubai Golf, through parent company wasl Asset Management Group, Dubai Creek Marina will make further announcements in coming months confirming the specific details of the vessels for sale and the traders exhibiting during the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show.
