So you’re looking for a yacht builder. Have you decided on what type of yacht to buy? If you prefer smaller vessels, below 6 meters, go for Day-sailing yachts. These often have retractable keel, centerboard, or daggerboard, and aren’t equipped with a cabin. Bigger yachts around 9 meters in length are called Weekenders. They have twin keels or lifting keels, and are capable of operating in shallow waters.
The most popular variety are Cruisers. They make up most of the 7 to 14-meter range, in private use. They are equipped with docile handling qualities, good light-wind performance, interior space and on-board comfort. Those who want speed choose racing yachts, which can attain speeds of up to 35 knots. Gulf Craft, leading yacht manufacturer UAE, offers a wide selection of the best yacht brands. From Majesty, Oryx to SilverCraft – you’ll surely find the perfect fit for your sailing ability.
