A Round-Up Of Day 1 Of The Dubai International Boat Show 2017

By Oliver Pearson   1 March 2017

Getting amongst the action as the Dubai International Boat Show got underway yesterday, the team at YachtCharterFleet took a look at some of the largest attending superyachts and joined in on one seriously exciting unveiling.

Beneath cloudless skies and amidst an atmosphere of feverish excitement, the team at YachtCharterFleet made their way along the walkways of the Dubai International Marine Club yesterday morning. As well as checking out the motor yachts on display, the team also headed over to the exhibition area to report live from an announcement made by Dutch shipyard Oceanco.

Revealing their latest design concepts and feats of engineering, the 120m/394ft concept superyacht AMARA was unveiled by His Excellency Saeed Hareb. A ‘ready to go’ project with a revolutionary luxury lifestyle philosophy, you can read our full coverage of the ceremony here.

As the 25th anniversary of the event, the Dubai International Boat Show 2017 is perhaps the most exciting edition yet, with an award-winning and recently delivered Feadship superyacht featuring as one of the leading ladies.

Commanding a considerable amount of attention from the discerning show attendees, the 70m/230ft motor yacht JOY dazzled in the Dubai waters. Winning the award for ‘Best Exterior Design & Styling’ at the Showboats Design Awards in February, it’ll be no surprise to see crowds gathered around her for the duration of the show.

Similarly, the 77m/153 motor yacht ‘Silver Fast’ looked sublime in the harbour, with her glittering silver hull and Espen Oeino styled lines making her totally unmistakeable.

As a superyacht open for charter in Dubai, the yacht will assuredly generate plenty of intrigue going into the remaining days.
