Our Belgian and German marine designers together with our Belgian, German and Austrian interior designers are able to offer state-of-the-art designs and customisations combined with excellent craftsmanship and carefully selected materials from all around the world. Knowing our quality, we are giving our customers a 10-year warranty on our vessels' hulls, which is one of the best in the industry.

DURETTI was founded by Dan Daman, a Belgian national, and DURETTI yachts have been initially produced by another shipyard according to the design and supervision of Dan Daman. After the success of the brand in its first years, the decision to establish an own shipyard was an easy step to take. Taking over the management of the previous shipyard as well as the majority of the staff enabled DURETTI to a transition-free production in its new premises.

DURETTI manufactures boats between 22 feet (6.7 metres) and yachts up to 295 feet (90 metres) according to European quality standards in Umm Al Quwain and Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates.

The range from 22 to 42 feet mainly includes fishing boats for commercial and private fishing, whereas the range from 48 feet upwards consists of luxurious motor yachts.

The company's premises in the industrial area of Umm Al Quwain, an Emirate north of Dubai, has an area of approximately 87,200 square feet (approx. 8,100 square metres) and accommodate the offices, the production halls, an own carpentry, several cranes to move the yachts on the premises, storage area as well as the accommodation of the shipbuilders.
