Held under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, ADYS
is the premier Middle East exhibition dedicated to the superyacht and megayacht segment -- comprising vessels between 30-100 metres in length.
Vistajet is the ADYS
official private jet sponsor and Rolls Royce its supporting partner.
In second place on the index, with 67 orders for 2011, and a total of length of 2,348 metres of yachts in construction, Azimut-Benetti will be represented by top brokers Edmiston & Co, who are bringing the 54m Moonlight to Yas Marina for next month's ADYS

has already attracted a powerful exhibitor line-up with industry heavyweights from the USA, Europe, Scandinavia and the Middle East contracted.
The first two ADYS
editions received a tremendously positive response from the global yachting community.
With the season-opener of the FIA GT1 World Championships 2011 'Battle of the Brands' being staged alongside ADYS
2011 at Yas Marina, the yacht show guarantees a truly exciting luxury weekend for visitors and guests.
The 2010 launch of the ES117, designed in collaboration with the Middle East's reigning fashion mogul Elie Saab, sparked a huge wave of industry, media and buyer interest, and Oceanco is keen to ride this wave with two new superyacht concept launches during ADYS
2010 is definitely going to be an unforgettable exhibition to visit and do business at.
Aldar's plans for ADYS
, which will run from March 12-14 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), have been hailed by the show's organisers as a major boost to Abu Dhabi's aspiring Super Yacht hub proposition.
The substantial number of berths planned by Aldar Marinas will strengthen Abu Dhabi's status as a new superyacht destination -- a ranking which is reflected by the arrival of ADYS
on the international industry calendar.
The Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix will take place from October 30 - November 1, during which ADYS
will display the superyacht Ellix Too, in association with yachting company Charterbay and luxury event organizers MonacoKool.
