Gulf Craft, one of the world’s top 10 superyacht building shipyards, said the time is right to be in the superyacht business in Europe. The statement was made at the recently concluded Düsseldorf International Boat Show (commonly known as boot Dusseldorf), which took place at Messeplatz, Dusseldorf, Germany.
In the last few years the company has seen its presence in the superyacht sector grow considerably – especially in Europe. Gulf Craft has cemented its international superyacht credentials in the past year with the delivery of six yachts above 30mt, three of which have been above 35m and three delivered to Europe. The company’s European growth in recent years has largely been driven by superyacht orders.
Boot Dusseldorf is one of the world's premier annual boat shows and has been running for 45 years. The show welcomed close to 80,000 visitors in its opening weekend of 2014 and attracted 1,650 exhibitors from 60 countries.
