The Middle East is gearing up for the 2016 Dubai International Boat Show which takes place from 1-5 March. Last year, the show attracted more than 26,000 visitors from over 120 countries, and over 850 international, regional, and local exhibitors from more than 50 countries.
This year's show is shaping up to be even bigger — take a look at the top yachts that you don't want to miss this time around:
Heesen's 47 metre Asya, which was delivered to her owners in March 2015, will be on display at the show. She is the second yacht in Heesen's restyled 47 metre class, which includes the spec-built superyacht Elena.
“Although it is not vital to have a yacht on display, it is absolutely the key to success in any boat show - not only in this region," commented Heesen. "Being able to showcase your product to a potential customer makes a significant difference."
