“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 Dubai’s and Abu Dhabi’s 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.
