Important and constructive talks were held on the sidelines of SMM in Hamburg, by Drydocks World’s high level delegation, led by Mr Khamis Juma Buamin, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World, and senior personnel of Lurssen Werft, a German luxury custom superyacht, naval ship and special vessels builder. Drydocks World is the most prolific ship builder in operation in the Middle East.
The two companies aim to work together on implementation of navy projects not limited to UAE’s naval fleet, by sharing scope of work and knowledge sharing on technical and project management aspects. The plan is to form a joint set up at the Dubai Maritime City (DMC) facility to cooperate in the yacht repair business. DMC is already an established centre for yacht repair repairing over 60 yachts annually.
“We are delighted about the atmosphere and progress of the discussion with Lürssen, a world leading player in the yacht and specialized business. Our facility in DMC is well placed to become a key destination outside Europe for yacht owners for service and maintenance. This co-operation will further strengthen and provide definite direction to our aspiration to become the preferred choice for maintenance of yachts,” said Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World.
