Nakilat Damen Shipyards Qatar (NDSQ) delivered its first two newbuilds of fast luxury superyachts. The two 71-meter highly-complex fast diving vessels (FDV), are the first superyacht-quality newbuilds constructed entirely at Qatar's world-class Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard, adapted from the Damen 'Sea-Axe' fast yacht support vessel.
"NDSQ has been making strides in Qatar's shipbuilding arena since its operations started in 2011, with successful deliveries of a variety of newbuild vessels to support operations at local ports and terminals," said Nakilat CEO Eng. Abdullah Al Sulaiti, in a release with the delivery. "Within the brief span of its operations, NDSQ's shipbuilding capabilities have proven to be a strategic addition to Qatar's maritime industry, acting as a catalyst to spur the country's growth as well as fulfil the economic diversification objectives outlined by Qatar National Vision 2030."
NDSQ builds a wide-variety of tonnage, from workboats for harbor service to tugboats, pilot boats, work barges, dredgers and high-speed crafts. NDSQ also undertakes various works for luxury yachts, with comprehensive shipyard facilities such as fully climate-controlled halls enabling interior and exterior finishing. The Superyacht Hall is used to build, repair and refit superyachts and yacht support vessels of a length of up to 170m.
To date, NDSQ has delivered 40 vessels, along with 28 yacht refits and repairs.
