Dockwise super ship heading to UAEPosted on
Dockwise Yacht Transports super ship Yacht Express will make its first delivery to the United Arab Emirates.
The 687-foot ships load of luxury yachts will be bound for the Dubai International Boat Show (March 3-7) and the inaugural Abu Dhabi Yacht Show (March 12-14).
This will be the first time Yacht Express has visited the United Arab Emirates, said Clemens van der Werf, president of Fort Lauderdale-based DYT, in a statement. It sends a strong message in support of Dubais and Abu Dhabis initiatives to develop the UAE as an international yachting destination, which includes world-class marinas and unrivaled opportunities for sport fishing, yacht racing and cruising.
Yacht Express will leave Fort Lauderdale in early January, adding boats in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and Genoa, Italy, before arriving in Dubai at the end of February. The ship will reverse course after the shows, with a stop in Genoa set for early April and arrival back in Fort Lauderdale in mid-April.
