Dubai Golf's Pre-Owned Boat Show Gearing Up For Fourth Year at Dubai Creek Marina

Established in 2010 and following on from the success of the 2012 Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show, which saw 29 yachts sold at an accumulate value of more than AED 9.5 million, Dubai Golf has announced the 2013 event will be held at the Dubai Creek Marina from 21st to 23rd November 2013.


The Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show 2013 sponsored by MIDEX AIRLINES, is the only event of its kind in the region and is open to buyers and sellers from across the Middle East. Located once again at the picturesque Dubai Creek Marina, the event organisers are looking to build on the success of the 2012 event, where over 7,200 people flocked to what has become one of the top boating events in the region.


Commenting on the event, Mustafa Al Hashimi, General Manager - Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, said; "The Middle East is a haven for sailing aficionados, with stunning coastlines to explore and impressive marinas to moor boats of all shapes and sizes. It is also home to some of the world's most spectacular yachts and demand for quality vessels in the region has been steadily increasing.


"This year's show coincides with the 20th Anniversary of the Dubai Creek Golf Club - a major milestone in the history of the club - and we are already witnessing strong interest in this year's Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show, with registration for boats, jet skis and retailers now being taken."


The show is a specialist event and unique in the region. Supported by event partner, Arabian Scandinavian Insurance Company (Ascana), the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show gives boat buyers intimate access to sellers, financers and insurers all on site throughout the three-day event, effectively providing them with the opportunity to 'buy and sail' on the same day. However, the show is so much more than a sales event, with an assortment of leisure and retail offerings for all the family, including the fiesta bodega island, family friendly games and competitions and live music.


Mr Jassim Albastaki, Director General of MIDEX AIRLINES, said: "We have been proud to sponsor this one of a kind event for the past four years, since its inception in 2010, and play our part in supporting the development of the boating community in the region.


 The Middle East is full of yachting enthusiasts and fantastic vessels, so an event of this kind plays a key role in enabling people to purchase and register their new boats quickly and cost effectively, as well as meeting likeminded people with a passion for the industry."


Managed by Dubai Golf, through parent company wasl Asset Management Group, Dubai Creek Marina will make further announcements in coming months confirming the specific details of the vessels for sale and the traders exhibiting during the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show.
