WORLD NEWS Dubai Harbour Marina welcomes first boats UAE: In late September Dubai Harbour Marina welcomed Gulf Craft, the Emirates’ based yacht builder, to be the first to experience the marina’s service and facilities before it fully opens to the public. The tri-deck Majesty 120 superyacht and the next-generation Oryx 379 both sailed in and became the first boats to enter the marina. Dubai Harbour Marina will be the most sophisticated of its kind in the Middle East, offering 1,100 berths in two phases for yachts up to 160m (520ft) in length. Operated by luxury marina group D-Marin Dubai, the marina will be a yachting hub with a mix of restaurants, a world-class crew club, independent fuel pumps, crew facility, a helipad and more. Located in the heart of Dubai, in the vibrant area between Bluewaters Island and Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Harbour’s integrated infrastructure is built over an area of around 186ha (459 acres) and will include retail, restaurants, cafés, luxury residences and hotels. Selcuk Balci, managing director of D-Marin Dubai and Dubai Harbour’s marina operator, said: “We are excited to welcome the first yachts into Dubai Harbour Marina. The marina will strengthen Dubai’s status as a modern maritime hub for yacht owners and captains to maritime businesses in need of a strategic logistics location. With the marina’s extensive facilities and worldclass services, we are looking forward to operating the largest leisure maritime destination in the Middle East.” Gulf Craft CEO Abeer Alshaali commented: “We are proud to be part of Dubai’s much anticipated landmark, the Dubai Harbour. Our remarkable experience of berthing our recently launched superyacht Majesty 120 and Oryx 379 sport cruiser in the marina reinforced our confidence that this will be an exceptional addition to the Emirates’ waterfront. Dubai Harbour will lead the way for greater economic growth both in tourism and yachting as Dubai adds boat enthusiasts to the ever-growing list of visitors, and highlights the level of luxury that yachts made in the UAE will achieve.” 62 YEARS OF MARINA INNOVATION.
