GULF CRAFT
BAGS PAKISTAN'S COAST GUARD
Gulf Craft, the shipyard based in the United Arab Emirates, has just launched twelve naval units for Pakistan's Coast Guard. The event represents the end of a first phase of investments involving the Emirates shipyard that the Pakistani government is making to bolster its Coast Guard. Six of the twelve fibre glass boats launched, are 36' long and six are 20' long in accordance to the specifications requested by the Coast Guard through its dealer in Pakistan. The shipyard's management believes that this order as those that will follow from other governments will enhance existing reputation thus enabling it to concentrate also on the production of similar boats, commented Erwin Bamps. Gulf Craft currently exports 70% of its production, which sports on average around 600 boats per year, through an international network of distributors which it wants to strengthen so as to increase its share in foreign markets. At the moment Gulf Craft is represented by its dealers in more than 40 countries and recently new distributors have been appointed in Florida, Egypt, Norway, Italy and Hong Kong.
