Published: Wednesday, 04 February 2015
Fairline announces the further expansion of its dealer network in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East with the appointment of motor yacht specialists ACE Marine L.L.C., trading as Fairline Middle East.
Fairline Middle East will operate from offices in Dubai, serving the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman. It is a sister company of Alkhalil Trading L.L.C., trading as Fairline Egypt based at Abu Tig Marina on the Red Sea. These two dealerships, along with Fairline Lebanon in Beirut, were established by Managing Director Tarek Khalil who has been part of the Fairline dealer network for five years.
Fairline Middle East will showcase some of Fairline’s newest models at the 2016 Dubai International Boat Show and will be introducing a number of models into the region in the meantime.
“Dubai offers a fantastic location for a new Fairline dealership and is perfectly placed to serve the Arabian Gulf region,” says Khalil. “Boat owners in the region have access to the country’s 300 exquisite manmade islands and the Arabian Gulf coastline has recently seen a great deal of development. The region has a growing community of luxury boat owners, who take advantage of the perfect boating conditions that we enjoy all year round.”
“Not only is this new dealership situated in a beautiful location, it represents an important development in Fairline’s expansion in the Arabian Gulf – a region within which we are committed to growing our presence,” says Stuart McCullough, Commercial Director at Fairline Boats. “At Fairline we put a great deal of emphasis on ensuring our dealers are of the highest calibre, with a vast understanding of the industry, and this is certainly true of Tarek and his team.”
