Superyachts built by four of the world's top ten yacht builders according to the Global Order Book 2011, will feature in the line-up for next month's Abu Dhabi Yacht Show 2011, the Middle East's premier show for superyachts.
The Global Order Book 2011 is a leading industry index which publishes the planned new-builds and order numbers for yachts of 24m or over for every shipyard, as well as the summed lengths of yachts. A definitive indicator of the scope of economic activity within the international luxury yacht industry, this year’s index lists several ADYS 2011 participants including Azimut-Benetti, Sanlorenzo, Sunseeker Feadship and Luerssen, amongst its top 10.


In second place on the index, with 67 orders for 2011, and a total of length of 2,348 metres of yachts in construction, Azimut-Benetti will be represented by top brokers Edmiston & Co, who are bringing the 54m Moonlight to Yas Marina for next months ADYS.

Following in third place with 37 units listed and a total length of 1,170 metres is Sanlorenzo, also ADYS bound with two yachts brought to the show by Luxury Sea Boats. Fifth on the list is Sunseeker, with 31 orders and 999 metres in construction, who will bring one superyachts a 30m, to next months show.

Luerssen, ranked sixth with 9 orders for 2011 and a total length of 760 metres under construction, will also be at ADYS. 'This will be the third time we participate and it is part of our global strategy to maintain and enhance brand awareness. The Middle East is an important market, and the yacht show in Abu Dhabi offers the right mix of people for us to do business with. We will promote the 78m Madsummer yacht delivered in 2008 and the 87m Phoenix which we delivered just last year,' said Michael Bremen, Sales Director, Luerssen.

Feadship, also ranked in the Global Order Book 2011 top ten with 12 new orders and 760 metres in construction, will be represented by the 46m Jana, brought to the show by Yacht Zoo.

'Visitors and exhibitors can look forward to an impressive line-up of superyachts at this year’s show,' said Andy Treadwell, Managing Director of Informa Yacht Group (IYG), organisers of ADYS. 'In choosing to bring top-of-the-line vessels to the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show, the world’s leading industry players have re-affirmed their confidence in the event as the region’s premier platform to showcase what they have to offer to the market. ADYS is considered to be one of the best targeted shows in the region for the superyacht sector, offering yacht brokers, charterers and builders the opportunity to engage with a high calibre of interested visitors.'

UK-Monaco based Burgess has confirmed that the 42.5m Le Yana will be berthed at Yas Marina for the show. The sleek Baglietto build was set to make an appearance at last year’s show but could not complete the journey in time.

'The complete list of yachts set to dock at ADYS 2011 is in the final stages of confirmation. Show visitors can definitely look forward to an exciting line-up this year,' adds Treadwell.

ADYS is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and is sponsored by Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA), with Yas Hotel as the official hospitality partner.

This year’s edition, to be held March 24 – 26 at Yas Marina, will be co-located and jointly promoted with the season opener of the FIA GT1 World Championship 2011 – one of the most glamorous events on the motor racing calendar.
