“Dubai International Boat Show has been very good for us this year; we’ve got a prime location on the marina and we’ve made a lot of new contacts of potential customers and key leaders in the industry. We can see the market here is very stable; there is a huge interest for yachts and catamarans, and we have had a lot of opportunities for future sales.”

Karolina Paszkiewicz-Kolacz – PR & Marketing Director of Sunreef Yachts

“The show was very good – we’re really happy with how it went. The feedback from the market was great and the interest very good. This was a very important event for us to showcase our new Ilumen, and we leave with some very hot leads. From the first day of the show, interest was really high – so we are very satisfied.”

Sophie Hotz, Relationship Manager, Dominator

“This year was better than ever – it feels bigger than last year. We’ve had almost too much interest in our boats, especially our smaller vessels! Many people were seeing our boats for the first time and so many from across Europe and the UAE have liked our products. For us, it’s a great place to be to sell boats.”

Maryam Alraeissi, Marketing Manager, Jas Marine

“I always enjoy the show. There’s a good combination between the show itself and the socializing after. These ingredients are nicely in place, with the build of the show well done. The level of media attention is great too, with Nikki Beach and the entertainment adding really cool elements.”

Farouk Nefzi, Marketing & Brand Director, Feadship


“The show has been good. The interest has been great in our new line of products, and we’ve closed a couple of major deals for 15/16 of our engines, so it’s been a success.”
