DUBAI: Three luxury yachts made their debuts in the Port of Dubai this weekend as part of the ongoing 2022 Dubai International Boat Show, as the world’s leading brands and exhibitors rushed to showcase their nautical work to the crowds this year at the largest and most popular leisure marine event in the Middle East. .
The 28th edition of the five-day event, which ends on Sunday, saw De Antonio Yachts, a Barcelona-based boat manufacturer, and EVO Yachts, a brand of Blu Emme Yachts, reveal their latest vessels to the public for the first times at The Port of Dubai, the largest marina in the Middle East.
EVO Yachts, following the recent partnership announcement with regional dealer EVO Yachts Dubai, launched its EVO R4 unit with unique interiors over the weekend. “Like something out of a Transformers movie”, the Evo R4 is the latest version of the Evo 43 stretch yacht, a fast 13m day-cruiser with sleek, sculpted contours and twin Volvo IPS 650 engines.
Speaking from the show, Marcus Giltay, Managing Director of EVO Yachts Dubai, said: “The quality of visitors to our stand has been excellent and at present we already have three to four potential buyers, which is fantastic. Dubai is the ideal platform. to launch our boats because the clientele here likes technology and gadgets, but also very high quality, which perfectly describes our ships.”
Since launch, the EVO 43’s revolutionary ‘XTension’ bulwarks have captured the eye, hydraulically opening in less than 30 seconds to increase usable deck space by 40% and transform the cockpit into a 25 m².
Meanwhile, De Antonio Yachts has launched its D50 Open, a 50ft yacht with two, three or four hidden outboard motors and built on the award-winning D46 Open hull. With a top speed of 50 knots and maximum power of 1800 hp, the exclusive yacht offers what De Antonio Yachts claims is unrivaled sailing efficiency.
The yacht can be ordered with two or three bedrooms, one of which can be converted into a skipper’s cabin and has a customizable interior layout. Likewise, the interior can include two or three bathrooms, making it a great choice for every homeowner’s needs. A 2.5 meter saltwater jacuzzi forward will be the envy of all.
In addition, the D46 Cruiser from De Antonio Yachts, another nautical marvel, was also launched this weekend and is aimed at the most sophisticated and demanding shipowners. The D46 Cruiser is a motor boat with a spacious deck, large aft sundecks and a large central saloon, all housed in an elegant retractable roof cabin that can comfortably accommodate up to 12 people.
The yacht has a spacious interior with one, two or three cabins and is powered by powerful hidden outboard engine configurations that deliver unparalleled performance with minimal maintenance.
“The Dubai International Boat Show attracts the ideal clientele for our target market,” said Ali Batterjee, Marine Division Manager of Samaco Marine & Power Sports, regional distributor for De Antonio Yachts. “We are consecutively launching the brand in three markets, Australia, UAE and Kuwait, so to be here at the focal point of all three is fantastic.”
The Dubai International Boat Show 2022 took place from March 9 to 13 in the Port of Dubai.
