Spectacular Kuwait Yacht Show set

The seventh edition of the Kuwait Yacht Show (KYS), Kuwait’s most awaited nautical event, will return to the Marina Crescent later this month, promising to be more spectacular than ever.

The five-day show, from March 26 to March 30, will further raise awareness on marine brands and open a new window for dealers to the ever-expanding and vibrant Kuwait maritime market.

This year, KYS will add a further berth, delivering its largest in-water presentation to date.

KYS, a well-established go-to event for years, will surpass its previous records of brand collaborations while meeting clients’ requests for larger showcasing spaces.

With an ever-growing demand for bigger yachts, the show will hosts a wide variety of 70 ft to 90 ft yachts.

Major brands participating this year include: Sunseeker, Azimut, Princess, Ferretti, and GulfCraft. Taking part in the show for the first time are: De Antonio from Italy, Suprema Marine from Bahrain and Al Shaali Marine and Riviera from the UAE.

KYS is also offering local start-ups an opportunity to showcase their products at the show. It will also launch an environment-friendly initiative with the aim of propagating its vision for a sustainable and green world.

New activities featured for the first time will range from daily marine-themed talks, debates, a live simulation by an expert kayaker, and many fish-casting competitions. Additionally, attendees will have the chance to savour the sailing experience on two sailboats offered by the KYS’s special collaboration with the Kuwait Sailing Association.

Meanwhile, KYS has recently garnered the Silver Membership of IFBSO, whose executive committee also welcomed KYS’ Managing Director Nouf Al Hajeri as its first Arab member.

“We are proud to mark our seventh edition with so much exciting news. The largest in-water presentation, the largest number of regional and international exhibitors to date, a locally manufactured boat that we are giving for one lucky winner and much more. This edition is the fabulous culmination of seven years of hard work,” Al Hajeri said.

“We have been supporters of the Kuwait Yacht Show from its very inception. Today, seven years later, our relationship has been strengthened to a point where indeed we feel we are true partners. We are proud of the successes of the past editions and are very excited to be having the 7th edition here. It promises to be its best yet,” Ahmad Alkandari of Marina World said. – TradeArabia News Service
