Gulf Craft yachts hold their value


GULF Craft yachts and boats are designed and constructed with the ability to hold their value longer than comparable models from other manufacturers, the CEO of Gulf Craft says.

Speaking ahead of the eighth edition of the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show, Erwin Bamps said the brand’s reputation for build quality, reliability, and durability both inside and out are among the factors that have earned its customer loyalty over the years.

Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show, which are being held at Dubai Creek Marina on Nov. 9- 11, is a relaxed opportunity for networking among the region’s yachting and boating community. from 11am to 9pm.

“The increase in the development of waterfront properties coupled with the role that Dubai Canal has played in attracting newcomers to the boating lifestyle have cemented Dubai as a mature market, with a thriving trade in pre-owned vessels,” said Bamps.

“For those new to yachting, buying pre-owned is a way to dip one’s toes into the market, while more experienced enthusiasts may wish to upgrade to a second or even third purchase for use in leisure pursuits such as fishing or diving.”

He added: “For this reason, Gulf Craft will exhibit three new models to attract these type of customers– the Majesty 48, Nomad 55, and Silvercraft 48 HT, competitively priced smaller models that we feel offer an alternative to buying a pre-owned. Customers looking for a larger yacht will find majesty 77 and Majesty 88 models to choose from.”
