ABSTRACT
The article reports on a growing industry of boat-building in Turkey as of September 2008. It is noted that, along with electronics and automobiles, boats have become a key export, and several companies now build and ship them to Europe and the U.S. According to Michael Landsberg, president of Vicem Yachts USA, the biggest advantage to building in Turkey is the country's history of craftsmanship. One active boatbuilder in the country is Sunrise Yachts, which manufactures megayachts in the 40- to 70-meter range.
