Gulf Craft was recently named one of the world’s top 10 superyacht builders. During the Beirut Boat Show, the company stated that they see the demand for luxury on-water yachting continues to be strong in the Lebanese capital.
Beirut’s recent expansion of its waterfront and entertainment, particularly in areas such as the Zaitunay Bay development, has reinstated its long held title of “Paris of the East.” Zaitunay Bay now offers a luxury marina setting with a boardwalk and several high-end dining outlets.
Mohammed AlShaali, chairman of Gulf Craft. “Beirut has always retained its position as a Mediterranean escape, with yachting and the marine entertainment scene being popular not only amongst the city’s wealthy residents but also among high-net-worth visitors from neighbouring countries in the GCC. We consider having a presence at the Beirut Boat Show an important addition to our annual boat show calendar.”
AlShaali continued to add how the yachting scene in the Middle East continues to develop through the strong support of organisation such as the Arab Marine Industries Association, which has been working to further regulate the industry. “We expect markets like Lebanon with natural coastlines that encourage marine leisure activities to continue to develop fast in the coming years.”
