What are the true reasons to
organize the exhibition at this time despite of the world
There is no doubt
that the crisis has a big effect, but life must go on and
people have to live their life and benefit from available
things in it. As for the exhibition timing, we hoped to make
it during the Beirut Yacht Exhibition, held once yearly. But
after its cancellation we decided to do an exhibition on our
own. Itís the Yachting Event. We invited our clients and
sent private invitations for persons that are interested in
this kind of exhibitions, and cares for this business. We
hope it will be successful.
What are the characteristics of this
exhibition? Might it be the fact that it is ďTop of RangeĒ?
No, in fact we have everything in this
exhibition, you will find from smallest yachts with a 19
feet length to the luxury 40 meter yachts. The prices vary
between 40000 USD and 22 million USD. There is also the
sport fishing boats, the fast speed boats, the high
performance open boats and the mega yachts.
In addition of the importance of exhibiting
these yachts in Lebanon, do you think the Lebanese market
can hold a 20 million USD yacht?
Lebanese market is not stranded for Lebanese
only; there is also Arab and Gulf customers that benefit
from its location. Not to forget to mention that in Lebanon
we have many marinas that offer all the facilities, services
and latest equipments to the customers. Also the easiness to
move inside the basin of Mediterranean from Lebanon to
Cyprus, Greek islands, Italy, France, Tunisia and Egypt. All
exotic destinations encourage boat owners to lay their boats
in the Lebanese marinas.
Does that mean that the Lebanese market is
The Lebanese market is very good, and we, as
exclusive agents of Ferretti in the Middle East, can assure
you that now the Lebanese market is the best.
Yes, it is. We are opening now in Egypt, in
the region of Algona, where there is a considerable demand
What about the Marina exhibition? Was there a
It was crowded. But as I told you, we do not
care for the number of customers; we care for the quality,
for customers interested in new boats.
