Sail Lanka Charter hosted Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe and his wife on-board their 53ft sailing catamaran, Sapphire, during the Fairway Galle Literary Festival. The impressive vessel reflects local indigenous talent, as it was built in Sri Lanka using local materials. Established in 2014 as part of the Sri Lanka Yachting Group, Sail Lanka Charter is enhancing local boat building skills as a tool to construct a bright future for young Sri Lankans as well as expanding the potential of the Sri Lankan tourism industry.
Expressing his sentiments, Pierre Pringiers – Chairman of Sail Lanka Charter, said, “We are proud to have had the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka grace our boat during his private visit to the Fairway Galle Literary Festival, and wish to thank him for taking an interest in the dynamic boat building industry and for appreciating our company’s efforts to add value to the sector. The visit by these government officials further strengthens the company’s bond with the tourism industry of Sri Lanka. I believe there is tremendous scope to grow the boat building industry while simultaneously introducing aquatic tourism in this beautiful island. At Sail Lanka Charter, we are proud to be spearheading the industry to achieve new milestones. We are committed to grow with the Sri Lankan tourism industry as a brand new experience the country can offer.”
During the Galle Literary Festival, the sailing catamaran, Sapphire, also hosted a series of VIP guests including artists, authors, several CEOs of Sri Lankan companies, members of the tourist board. The visit by these government officials further strengthens the company’s bond with the tourism industry of Sri Lanka.
