The city of Dubai has just wrapped up their 20th annual International Boat Show, and in a unsteady economy there was no shortage of luxury. With an estimated $260 million worth of yachts and boats on display, the show has been billed as the world's premier marine event.

Saaed Hareb has been at the helm of the Marine Industry in Dubai for 20 years, and remarked to CNN that buyers were coming Europe, the far East, and African, because the Dubai Market is a central point for the whole region.

Gulf Craft, one of the region's largest yacht builders, showcased one of their newest liners. Erwin Bamps, COO of Gulf Craft told CNN, "This is the upper deck formal dining room with dining capabilities for up to 20 people, and the owner actually visited a hotel in Switzerland and like the interiors and asked us to recreate that same cozy feel." The Gulf Craft yacht also features 24 Karat gold bathroom fixtures.
