Among the fleet, the exhibitor showed three global premieres including the tri-deck Majesty 140, the owner-manageable Majesty 62 family yacht and the Touring 48, which have evoked interest of customers from the Gulf region, Europe, Russia, Australia, and Southeast Asia.

"Despite the challenges brought upon by new regulations and taxes that were implemented on the manufacturing industry, Gulf Craft has managed to create its own space to grow by delivering quality." said Notis Menelaou, Vice President of Sales at Gulf Craft.

"We not only continue to invest greatly in research and development, but also gained a lot from our 36-year experience. Every time we move in a new direction, we keep our customer's requirements at the forefront. This astute approach helps us develop premium crafts that are trend-setting."  

The 2018 event has attracted more than 26,000 visitors from 151 nationalities and was graced by the presence of Sheikhs, royal family members, VVIPs and high-net worth individuals.
