The dazzling waterfront at Qatar’s prestigious Lusail City hosts the inaugural Qatar International Boat Show on November 12–16, an event expected to draw more than 15,000 visitors and welcome Qatar to the international show-circuit map.


Lusail Marina’s breathtaking ambience makes it an ideal setting for this luxury event, with about 100 exhibitors from Qatar and around the world, including pre-eminent companies such as Overmarine, Benetti, Feretti, and San Lorenzo. “We have already signed with some of the biggest marine and leisure supply companies and distributors who seek to capitalise on Qatar’s booming economy and the upcoming marine industry,” said Faysal Mikati, Vice President of organiser Snow Communications. “The plan is to put Qatar on the map in terms of the international boat show circuit by becoming one of the main destinations for regional yacht and boat companies, as well as international companies involved in leisure and water sports, seeking investment opportunities in the GCC markets, estimated at around QR 750m.”


Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II

Rolex‘s revolutionary regatta chronograph, launched in 2007, is now available for the first time in 904L steel, fitted with a Cerachrom bezel insert in blue ceramic. The Yacht-Master II is equipped with calibre 4161, a self-winding mechanical regatta chronograph movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.
From US$18,750


Mangusta Oceano 42

Known for its open maxis, the latest project for the Overmarine Group is the Mangusta Oceano, a 42m yacht in steel and aluminium designed by Alberto Mancini. A displacement-style mega-yacht allows Overmarine to broaden its client base to those who wish to spend time outside of the three most popular yachting destinations – the Med, the Bahamas, and Florida. Launch date 2016.


33 Riva Aquariva Super

The Riva has an unmatched heritage in the yachting world. Available in open, coupé, and flybridge styles, between 8m and 37m in length, these craft revel in their careful attention to detail, such as the timber’s perfect seasoning, 24 layers of paint, and perfect polishing. All screws are even installed in the same direction, and their heads painted the same colour as the hull.
