6:30 am
domains 80 percent of our clients are men. they're often the only ones who have the money to buy a yacht. and they want complete control over it it's their baby that makes my job a lot easier. as you know it is a. new start dubai situated on the shores of the gulf dubai is the financial center of the middle east when we meet instead he's working as usual. i can't because i have a client meeting in captaincy on thursday 5 o'clock i'd love to but i'm 430 i can't i'm flying to london on thursday nights at 20 something and then i'm flying to the neighbor in the afternoon we could have a late lunch in london perhaps on friday if he's in london on friday but facts about you but by the problem. sorry that was a broker who's trying to set up a meeting for me with
6:31 am
a client good. but it's always been like i'm here when he's there buys a verse on the martial arts but it's a. lesson will be entered by for just 24 hours but he couldn't miss the big boat show everyone who's anyone in the york industry will attend. for more than a quarter of a century the super rich have come to dubai to check out the york market at least half of the world's largest shops are owned by wealthy arabs. the amir of dubai sheikh mohammed bin rashid al maktoum arise with his usual contingent of advisors and bodyguards. but rather she this is the aft deck. and spin doesn't need to

6:33 am
horsepower days away. engines and can reach a top speed of 27 knots 50 kilometers an hour the original asking price of this yacht was about 18000000 euros that's been says it was designed for a new generation of your harness so it is the old one for about 10 years now we've been designing boats that are more contemporary and that reflects that ship owners are getting younger these days it seems that a lot of people are getting rich more quickly the average age of yacht owners has dropped significantly and 30 years ago when i got started in this business all the owners were at least 60. today our customers are more like 30 to 40 years old can't count. on. this been continued to meet with potential customers well into the evening.
