The guests included representatives from the UAE’s Federal Transport Authority (FTA), the UAE classification society - Tasneef - as well as maritime regulators from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Oman.
The regulators were given a tour of the facility, and witnessed the superyacht and yacht production process in action while meeting the professionals behind the creation of the vessels. Gulf Craft’s Chairman Mohammed Hussein Al Shaali also greeted the visitors.
As a pioneer in the region’s leisure marine industry, Gulf Craft not only lends its expertise towards the development of the UAE Yacht Code, which sets the standards for the production of private yachts 24 metres in length and above in the country, but also towards the creation of the GCC Yacht Code.
Gulf Craft was recognised as the Best Asian Motor Yacht Builder at the Asia Boating Awards, and honoured with the Quality and Value Award at the World Superyacht Awards.
