Mumbai, India, August 24, 2012 --( Cardinal Yachts, the premier manufacturer of luxury boats in India, has launched an extensive fleet of pleasure yachts, catamarans, trawlers and fishing boats, in line with impressive growth in the leisure boating industry in the country.

A recent report by Boston Consulting Group or BCG, a global consultancy firm, confirmed that there were now more than 162,000 households in India worth more than US$ 1 million (Rs 550 crore), a growth of 21% year on year, creating a buoyant affluent marketplace keen to enjoy the seas.

Focusing on unrivaled technology and stunning design, Cardinal Yachts has released nine breath-taking boats, from the elegantly refined Cardinal Motor Yacht 1900 through to the spacious and sleek Cardinal Catamaran 36.

With 7,600 kilometres of coastline available in India there is certainly scope for the leisure boating industry to thrive.

“India is the new Monaco,” said Harshvardhan Jaiswal, Director and Mastermind behind Cardinal Yachts. “Manufacturers from all over the world are looking to India right now and Cardinal Yachts is at the heart of the industry with a high quality product to enjoy and experience our beautiful coastline.”

The remarkable 68 foot Cardinal Motor Yacht 1900 is the pride of the fleet, offering sumptuous refinement offering a host of state of the art features including teak wood floors, leather upholstery and a 32 inch TV with DVD.

At 56 feet, the Cardinal Motor Yacht 1600 sleeps eight people allowing for a relaxing holiday away with family and friends with all of the resplendent comforts of home. The Cardinal Motor Yacht 1400 sleeps six and at 46 feet come complete with all of the ‘as-standard’ featured on the 1900 and 1600.

Completing the Pleasure Boat range for Cardinal Yachts is the Cardinal Motor Yacht 360 for those lazy days along the coastline, soaking up the watery setting sun.

All of the leisure boat range comes complete with a choice of Natural Teak, Wenge or Ebony finishes throughout allow customers to tailor the boat to their dreams.

In addition to the leisure boats, the Cardinal Catamaran 36 brings an amazing 36 feet, six berth cat to the portfolio. The fun and exquisite model redefines social coating and is sure to stand out from the crowd.
