Manama, May 11, 2009
Gulf Craft, a leading player in the global boat and yacht manufacturing industry, said its Silvercraft brand of yachts received overwhelming response from buyers during its firsst appearance at the inaugural Bahrain Boat Show.
The appearance follows a successful participation at the Dubai International Boat Show and the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show earlier in the year and consolidates the local manufacturer’s dominance of the GCC marine industry.
“The constant flow of potential buyers to our stand was a testament that even in its entry year, the Bahrain Boat Show has huge potential for expanding boating culture in the country, and we are thankful to the Knotika team who organized the event for the opportunity given," said Erwin Bamps, executive manager, Gulf Craft.
"We experienced strong interest in our range of Oryx sport cruisers and Silvercraft’s open cruisers en family boats such as the Silvercraft 37 SF. This is a very positive note for Gulf Craft as we continue to grow the business in line with consumers needs in the region,” he added.
A total of 7 yachts and boats were displayed by the company at the inaugural event. The models included the Majesty 56 as a signature model from the Majesty brand, Oryx 36, Oryx 40, Silvercraft 37 SF, Silvercraft 33 SC, Silvercraft 26 SC and Walkaround 31.
With its outstanding value-for-money proposition, the Silver Craft 37 SF leisure craft generated excellent interest due to its distinct design features and excellent on-water performance.
It has succeeded in capturing a niche market and strong following among marine enthusiasts across the region.
“The first ever Bahrain Boat Show provided an excellent opportunity to showcase the quality of manufacturing, design and finishing of our crafts and we have no doubt that the show will go from strength to strength in the years to come,” Bamps added.-TradeArabia News Service
