Founding of the company as a subsidiary of Exalto BV Netherlands
Our journey began as we set sail in 1994. In less than three decades, we have positioned ourselves as the number one marine equipment and supplies distributor of premium brands in the Middle East. Today, the company represents over 120 reputed international manufacturers of high-quality marine parts, equipment and accessories. We are the first port of call for various marine industries – from leisure to commercial, Offshore Oil & Gas to Government Services. We take immense pride in being able to provide a comprehensive portfolio of products. So, whether you are a marine industry professional or a boating enthusiast, a boat builder or a shipyard, a service operator or a fleet owner; Exalto Emirates can fulfill your requirements.
Our Head Office is located in Sharjah with a branch office in Dubai. This allows us to efficiently supply within the UAE, across the GCC, the greater Middle East, Africa, the Indian subcontinent and beyond. We also have a large and well-stocked warehouse to meet any customer needs as well as a service center that provides seamless support for installation, commissioning, service and warranty. Exalto Emirates’s team of professionals includes a number of marine, mechanical and electrical engineers and naval architects, which allows us to provide specialized engineering and design advice for all manner of projects, customized to any requirement.

At Exalto Emirates, we put our customers first. Without you we do not have a business. We therefore strive with all our products and services to put you, the customer, at the very center. What you need, when you need it and where you need it is what guides us.
It is a principle we have held onto since our founding – and which has been deepened since the existing company was acquired in 2009. And this belief is never-ending – we continue on our quest of perfection – to learn, to improve, to adapt, to grow, as our customers grow. This is what makes for long lasting relationships and creates mutual respect.
Exalto Emirates’s purpose is all about helping our customers to build, service and operate better boats, we live by the motto “Everything we do, we do to making boating better". This implies the best quality products, services and support, to create safety and environmental awareness and in general promote a better nautical experience for all stakeholders. Which is why, we have a striking and unique slogan – “We Are On Board!”. In simple words, this means we are on board with you – together with you, in the same boat with our products and services – on a journey towards the same destination, ensuring that your customer experience with us is the smoothest of sailing in every which way.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
It takes a captain to chart the course. But it takes a solid team to steer any ship. At Exalto Emirates, our team is what anchors us in solidity. In 2010, we had a staff of just 13 people. Currently, our strength has increased to over 80 professionals. Our workforce comes from many nationalities and is a melting pot of diverse backgrounds and cultures. But the one culture that pervades across, is that of going together on a journey as a strong team.
For each of us at Exalto Emirates, the understanding is simple – service to our customers is the key and living our values and principles is the main essence. Of course, a large proportion of our personnel has a maritime background, which contributes to and enhances the sense of purpose we all feel and share across the company.
