Mourjan Marinas IGY renews Festival Marina contract
Dubai, March 13, 2010
Mourjan Marinas IGY, a provider of innovative development and management solutions for marina lifestyle destinations, said it has renewed its long term partnership with Dubai Festival City to continue management of Festival Marina.
Mourjan Marinas IGY is a new company which was formed late last year to continue to drive the growth of marina development throughout the Middle East.
The new contract extends the successful relationship between Dubai Festival City and Mourjan Marinas IGY who will continue to utilise its design, engineering, management and marketing expertise to benefit one of Dubai’s most stunning waterfronts, said Matthew Bate, director of Operations, Mourjan Marinas IGY.
‘‘Festival Marina is a popular attraction for the yachting circuit and we are proud to have been a part of that success and to now be continuing our relationship with Dubai Festival City under the Mourjan Marinas IGY brand,” he observed.
'This has been a strong and successful partnership, one which we are deeply committed to, and we are now very much looking forward to maintaining Festival Marina’s position as one of world’s premier and unique yachting destinations,' Bate added.
Following the partnership renewal, Mourjan Marinas IGY has launched new rates and trial offers to boat owners at Festival Marina starting from this month. The offers include a one month free trial berthing open from April to August 2010, the company said.
As part of the Dubai International Boat Show 2010, Mourjan Marinas IGY is also offering a 50 per cent discount on berthing fees for six months and annual contracts. This will be exclusive to the first five customers who sign a contract and pay in full during the month of March, it added.
Tom Miles, director of Shopping Centres, Al-Futtaim Real Estate Group, said, 'After the success of the past few years working with IGY, we are thrilled to be continuing our professional relationship with Mourjan Marinas IGY.'
'Our aim is to build and maintain the prestige of Festival Marina and we are excited by the possibility of even greater success with Mourjan Marinas IGY over the coming years,' he noted.
Originally opened in 2007, Festival Marina is a unique yachting destination in Dubai. It has a 250 metre diameter basin, forming a Mediterranean style luxury yachting hub surrounded by fine dining, shopping and five-star accommodation.
The marina has 74 berths for motor yachts from 15 to 35 meters in length, plus 24 quay-side berths with short or long term options. Festival Marina is located within historical Dubai Creek and allows visiting yachts to moor directly at the quayside so passengers can go ashore and enjoy a day at Dubai Festival City.-TradeAraba News Service
