Abu Dhabi announces decision to establish and develop a boating industry

24.06.2013: ē ADIMSC reaches agreement with Marine Technology Inc. (MTI) With the full support of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan

•    ADIMSC reaches agreement with Marine Technology Inc. (MTI)
 

With the full support of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces and under the promotion and patronage of Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa Al-Nahyan, advisor to His Highness the Head of State and President of the board of directors of the Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC), it was announced during a visit to St. Louis in the United States of America and a visit to the Marine Technology Inc. (MTI) factory that Abu Dhabi would commence the manufacture of race boats and develop a boating industry.
 

The decision has been made to emphasise the importance of the successes of the ADIMSC and to continue to promote Abu Dhabi through global Class 1 marine sport racing. The presence of new race boats in the World Championship will also boost the reach and strength of this form of racing discipline.
 

“We have various plans to promote Abu Dhabi and to boost tourism,” said His Highness Sheikh Mohammed. “The participation of various teams from Abu Dhabi in all competitions helps to achieve this goal. We want to be at the very pinnacle of all forms of racing.”
 

His Highness emphasised the importance of all forms of marine sports and gave special praise to the successes of Team Abu Dhabi in UIM F1 H20 racing, which is gaining new territory every season and is watched by millions of spectators around the world.
 

“We are convinced that the heroes of the UAE who currently compete are the elite who can continue to achieve results around the world. The current group have all the ingredients for success, but we are always on the look out for new talent for the future.”
 

New competition race boats will be built later this year with a view to being used by Team Abu Dhabi in 2014. His Highness toured the MTI factory and also listened to a detailed report from the factory owner and manager Randy Scism, himself a winner of 10 Class 1 races and multiple successes around the world in other powerboating disciplines.
 

There will be a technical co-operation between Abu Dhabi and MTI for the manufacture of racing boats and the new boating industry will develop other marine craft for multiple uses, including fishing craft, scuba diving and for coast guard, military use and for use in the oil industry.
 

“We have many ambitious plans in order to make the emirate of Abu Dhabi the capital of marine sports racing. This will give us great benefits in the future,” added His Highness.
 

Randy Scism thanked His Highness for his visit and said: “We are ready to provide all the necessary team work to provide the expertise for co-operation in this exciting project. We are proud to have been chosen to provide the technical support and we are sure that this will open the door for greater benefits for both parties.”
 

Wentzville-based Marine Technology Inc. (MTI) is one of the largest manufacturers of race boats in the world and has over 25 years’ experience of marine technology and innovation.
 

Team Abu Dhabi runs under the auspices of the ADIMSC and has the support of Etihad Airways as the team’s official carrier for Class 1 and UIM F1 H20 racing. Salem Al-Romaithi acts as the head of operations with the team running under the chairmanship of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan.
