Hot on the heels of last week's news from Dubai, when Dubai Maritime City (DMC), signed a yacht manufacturing workshop lease agreement with Vitmar Yachts, another Middle Eastern yard announced their superyacht plans.

Qatari shipbuilder Nakilat Damen Shipyards Qatar (NDSQ) announced that they will built Qatar's first fast luxury yacht at the Erama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard in Ras Laffan.

The Minister of State H E Sheikh Mohammed bin Fahad Al Thani and NDSQ's chairman Muhammad Ghannam, signed the contract to build the vessel. The 69 metre vessel is based on Damen’s 67m Sea-Axe fast yacht support vessel.
