The newly-opened Dubai Water Canal project will change how boating is perceived in the UAE, according to the boss of a UAE-based superyacht builder.
Erwin Bamps, CEO of Gulf Craft, said Dubai’s latest waterfront development will give yacht enthusiasts an opportunity to enjoy “protective waterway cruising”, allowing them to sail through the heart of Dubai.
“The Dubai Canal will enable existing and aspiring yacht owners to experience the yachting lifestyle without having to venture out into the open seas, eliminating the barrier often associated with fear of navigation and seasickness,” said Bamps.
“This project is essentially changing the landscape of boating in the UAE, creating a waterway in the centre of new communities, similar to other cruising sanctuaries found in modern cities around the world, such as the beautiful waterways adjoining the Sydney Harbour.” More info
