Dubai is Obvious Choice for Boat Show

By Linda Tancs

Named after its home port, the 531-foot mega yacht Dubai is the largest private yacht in the world, owned and presumably enjoyed by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of the Emirate of Dubai.  You might catch a glimpse of it at the Dubai International Boat Show, taking place now through 17 March.  Now in its 20th year, the event at the Marine Club promises more than 100 new exhibitors from over 24 countries.  Austria, Egypt, Hong Kong, Madagascar, Tunisia and Poland will be making debuts along with North Africa’s leading shipyard, Koot Yachts.  The show is open from 3 to 9:30 p.m.
