Ras Al Khaimah: Sunreef Yachts Middle East, world leading shipyard specializing in the design and construction of bespoke luxury catamarans and multihull superyachts, and RAK Maritime City have partnered in order to build a new facility in Ras Al Khaimah. Sheikhs, dignitaries, and business leaders were present during the signing ceremony.
This initiative is an exciting opportunity for both parties to leverage their respective strengths and resources to create a world-class facility that will serve as a hub for innovation in the region and create many new jobs.
Developed on a 65 000m2 land reserve, the new facility will incorporate the latest technologies in luxury yacht building and will meet the highest standards of sustainability and energy efficiency. As part of the cooperation, Sunreef Yachts and RAK Maritime City will work together to carry out the development of the facility, which will be able to offer a 360-degree approach to yacht manufacturing with a modern paint shop, carpentry, upholstery and stainless steel workshops all equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and latest robotics. The first manufacturing and CNC halls are currently nearing completion.
An important crossroad between West and East, Ras Al Khaimah and the UAE was the best strategic choice for the company, due to Ras Al Khaimah’s exceptional incentive, industry support and easy access to key markets and transportation infrastructure.
The new facility will be an important part of Sunreef Yachts’ global expansion strategy. It will not only strengthen the company’s presence in the Middle East but also allow a stronger connection with the Asian and Australian markets. With two manufacturing sites in Poland and an emerging facility in Ras Al Khaimah, Sunreef Yachts gains an even more global reach for its range of sustainable catamarans. The first units to be produced in Ras Al Khaimah will be the hybrid 55 Open Sunreef Power as well as power and sail yachts ranging from 50 to 70 feet.
By working together, the cooperating entities will create a facility that will be a leader in modern, sustainable yachting, providing innovative solutions and cutting-edge technologies to meet the evolving needs of customers.
