All eyes were on the waters off The Pearl-Qatar earlier this month, when Ronautica Middle East (RME), a wholly owned subsidiary of United Development Company (UDC), opened boat-enthusiasts the opportunity to test the first Meridian 341 Sedan, for which RME is the exclusive distributor in Qatar. Speed and capabilities of the world-class yacht are on display during the test runs on the sparkling Arabian Gulf.
Meridian Yachts, established in 2002, has quickly become North America's leading builder of bridge boats. Its vessels are designed to deliver a “higher level of livability, cruisability and maneuverability”. “The Meridian 341 is equipped with a ‘Docking on Command’ docking system and operates through a simple joystick that controls the two main engines and the two thrusters.” explained Lennart Bottenberg, Sales and Development Manager at Ronautica Middle East.
“Even for people who are relatively new to boating this ‘Docking on Command’ system turns boat handling into a breeze and eliminates the need to hire a captain”, Bottenberg said.
The testers have been impressed by this great bridge cruiser, especially since most yachts in this range are best suited for a mere overnight or weekend stays offshore.
This yacht is different – it redefines the class by providing luxurious accommodation, highly sophisticated interiors and spectacular add-on features for nearly unlimited cruising potential “It changes just how much cruising comfort you can design into a compact sedan. ” said Bottenberg.
Following this success, Ronautica Middle East is inviting all interested boat-enthusiasts to also test its other exclusively distributed brands such as the Bayliner, Boston Whaler and Zodiac.
