Outer Reefs Yachts’ Middle Eastern sales team, headquartered at this new retail center, will be led by the area’s Director of Sales, Peter N Divers. Divers has extensive experience within the global yachting market, with his most recent venture as a partner in Imperial Yachting LLC , and prior to this, working with Princess Yachts in Qatar. This strong representation and partnership within the Dubai area was particularly attractive to Outer Reef as a growing business, tourism, and center of the Middle Eastern yachting community. The Dubai Location is an ideal hub for the entire Middle East and North Africa, covering the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Kenya and Tanzinia.
Jeff Druek, Outer Reef Yacht’s Owner and CEO, stated, “We chose to continue our company’s growth in Dubai, given that Dubai is the top business gateway for the Middle East and Africa, and over the past ten years the area has become a burgeoning commercial and residential real estate center. Many of our clients in this region have expressed interest in our new Outer Reef Trident Series, a long range, robust, efficient and contemporary sports cruiser offered in 55, 65, 75 and 98 feet. The call for this style yacht within Dubai and the surrounding area, along with an overall steady growth and interest in long range cruising, is a natural segue for our business and brand and creates the perfect opportunity.”
The Gulf Cooperation Council of January 2014 reports The Gulf has been outpacing other high growth markets and this trend is set to continue. Governments and leaders in this area have set the ground work for sustained future growth, including a definitive move towards healthcare, tourism, education, housing, and yachting.
The Outer Reef Yachts Dubai and European sales teams will attend the upcoming Dusseldorf International Boat Show January 17th through 25th, 2015.
