On the opening day of the Dubai International boat show, Sunseeker sold their 38m Predator 130 for AED 72 million, bringing further attention to the growing industry in the UAE and the confidence returning to the market.

CEO of the Dubai World Trade Centre, Helal Saeed Almarri stated: “The sale of this beautiful superyacht is a great example of how confidence is returning to the leisure marine market, especially here in Dubai.”
He also added: “We experienced a great number of serious buyers during the first day of the show and we are confident that we will see further good news stories from the Dubai International Boat Show throughout the week.”

Sunseeker is one of the leading companies at the show, with eight boats on display, which are the Sunseeker 82 Yacht, Manhattan 70, 60 and 52, Predator 62, Portofino 47 and the Superhawk 43.

“This is the best possible start to this year’s Dubai International Boat Show,” said Francesco Pitea, General Manager, Sunseeker Middle East. “We have always maintained that the leisure marine industry in the Middle East will remain buoyant, especially for the strongest brands which people have come to trust. The Dubai International Boat Show provides us access to some of the top buyers in the region and we are hopeful of doing more business in the coming days.”

Business is evidently beginning to pick up, after it hit the bottom in the recession, with UAE being one of the leaders amongst the emerging markets across the globe.

The Show runs until 13 March 2010 at the Dubai International Marine Club, Mina Seyahi.
