Dubai – MENA Herald: Gulf Craft recently welcomed 10 maritime regulators from across the GCC to one of its award-winning shipyards in the Emirates.

Visitors were given a tour of the facility, and had an opportunity to witness the superyacht and yacht production process in action while meeting the skilled professionals behind the creation of the builder’s innovative vessels. They were also given the opportunity to meet with Gulf Craft’s Chairman, Mohammed Hussein Al Shaali.

The guests included representatives from the UAE’s Federal Transport Authority (FTA), the UAE classification society, Tasneef, as well as maritime regulators from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Oman.

As a pioneer in the region’s leisure marine industry, Gulf Craft has been stepping forward to not only lend its expertise towards the development of the UAE Yacht Code, which sets the standards for the production of private yachts 24 meters in length and above in the country, but also towards the creation of the GCC Yacht Code, demonstrating the builder’s position as an authority on best practice.

Having recently been recognized as the Best Asian Motor Yacht Builder at the prestigious Asia Boating Awards, and honored with the Quality and Value Award at the internationally acclaimed World Superyacht Awards, Gulf Craft continues to put the UAE and the GCC on the map for the timeless design and powerful engineering of world-class luxury yachts and leisure boats.
