Live from Qatar: German Ambassador visits show

Germany’s Ambassador to Qatar, Angelika Renate Storz-Chakarji, paid a surprise visit to the Qatar International Boat Show which is being held this week at Mourjan Marinas, Lusail City, just north of downtown Doha.

Fr. Storz-Chakarji visited both the Blohm + Voss and Lurssen stands to show her support for the German superyacht builders.

The Ambassador also went on board a super-dhow from Qatar's Al Mannai Marine – a unique design which looks like a traditional dhow on the outside, but feels like a super yacht on the inside. “The high quality build of this boat, which combines the traditional with modern technology is truly astounding,” she said.

The Qatar International Boat Show is open every day until today 9.30pm. Entrance to the Show is free.
