His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid said: “The country’s rich seafaring heritage and historical advantages, combined with the vision of our founding fathers, have driven the development of world-class maritime infrastructure. This infrastructure has driven many world-class projects and has led to the country becoming a leading player in various global sectors, including trade, tourism, leisure and hospitality.

The organization of one of the world’s most influential boat shows is yet another example of our determination to make Dubai a global maritime destination and a center of excellence in various sectors. Today Dubai is the yachting capital of the world and the preferred destination for yacht owners, charters and cruise travelers from around the world.”
