The Dubai International Boat Show 2014 continues to offer the ideal platform for the latest launches in the leisure marine industry, with a myriad of global and regional premiers taking place at the show.

Among the premiering line-up is a brand new yacht model, the ‘Majesty 48’, which has been designed to cater to a wider audience of yachting enthusiasts. Gulf Craft’s focus on innovation and engineering, high quality material selection and craftsmanship makes the Majesty 48 a new class of its own.  Designed to make yacht ownership more attainable in a market that is showing increasing demand for mid-size yachts and leisure craft globally, the Majesty offers just what any new owner needs. It is intelligently engineered as a full-option yacht that maximises the utilisation of interior space, natural light and usability.

Making a public appearance for the first time, the ‘AS Marine 88’ by Al Shaali Marine will delight even the most discerning clients. Expanding out by 88 feet and weighing 60 tons, the AS Marine 88 makes its mark on the open water. Al Shaali Marine produces top-quality yachts that have gained wide popularity and success all around the world.

SeaPros unveiled the ‘Pershing 62’, which combines luxury, top performance, and comfort and practicality. The new vessel is built to impress with a mobile and foldable platform available in the central part of the beach, which allows quick and simplified handling of the tender in the garage, using a winch rather than cranes to lower it into the water.  The Pershing 62 allows yachting enthusiasts the possibility of customising spaces, which is typical on larger footage boats, allowing this model to let all owners make their own boat ‘personal’.

ART MARINE, has officially revealed the stunning Riva 68’ Ego Super yacht to the Middle East. The Riva 68’ Ego Super has won the prestigious "European Powerboat of the Year" and the renowned "Millennium Yacht Design Award". The luxurious vessel comes equipped with the highest degree in luxury, design, and state-of-the-art technologies, ultimately matching the needs and requirements of the most discerning clientele. The 68’ Ego Super is an ideal compromise between a sizeable flybridge yacht, yet allowing maximum performance.

The new ‘Princess 56’ is destined to become the benchmark for her class after showcasing at the Dubai International Boat Show this year. Featuring an exquisitely finished interior and yacht performance, the Princess 56 showcases innovative storage spaces and comfortable spaces for all families to enjoy.  Yachting enthusiasts can enjoy panoramic views on the spacious flybridge where further seating surrounds a second al fresco dining table. Whether clients need space for growing families or more than enough space for two, the Princess 56 is to deliver on all levels.

The 2014 Dubai International Boat Show, in its 22nd edition, is taking place at the Dubai International Marine Club - Mina Seyahi, from March 4 to 8, and is open to trade visitors and the general public from 3pm - 9:30pm daily.
