Luxury motor yacht builder Gulf Craft, based in the United Arab Emirates, announced at the Dubai Boat Show a new partnership deal with Italian equipment manufacturer Quick Srl. Under the agreement, Quick will be the supplier of equipment for Gulf Craft’s new 95ft Gulf 95 EXP motor yacht with the concept of 'comfortable living on the water' at its heart. The Quick products on board include a twin anchor handling system, hydraulic bow and stern thrusters - complete with a specially developed central control system – Quick SS 316 water heaters with a calorifier option, and a recently developed, full pop-up LED lighting system for the foredeck seating area. When not in use, these lights are retracted to leave an unobstructed deck area.

Gulf Craft and Quick worked closely together on the development of the unique central, synchronized, combined joystick controller for the double anchor inch and both bow and stern thrusters. The arrangement of the bow and stern hydraulic thrusters, controlled from a single position on the bridge, will make it particularly easy to handle the Gulf 95 EXP when maneuvering in or out of marina berths and compliments the Gulf 95 EXP 'art de vivre'.

Erwin Bamps, Chief Operating Officer for Gulf Craft said of the new close working relationship: "This joint development demonstrates the synergy between our two companies. We are delighted to be working with Quick - a company that shares our ideals of high quality in both design and production in the development and construction of our new concept Gulf 95 EXP, where we have blended a heritage of boat building skills with a pursuit of luxury living at its best to create a vessel with a unrivalled ease of operation and exquisite comfort level."

Quick Srl is headquartered in Italy where the company has been designing and manufacturing top quality marine equipment and accessories since 1983. The company has built up a strong presence in American quality boatbuilding, but is also distributed throughout the world. Quick's navigation, anchor and general lighting division has devoted much of its research and design attention to the use of LEDs for lighting, either on their own or seamlessly integrated with conventional light sources. Quick manufactures all of its products at its own premises within Italy.

Andreas Karlsen, Sales Manager for Quick Srl, also expressed his excitement at the partnership with Gulf Craft. "It is a privilege to form a team with such an energetic and forward looking company as Gulf Craft, who share our interest in providing the best possible products for the customer."
