Manama, November 25, 2011
Durrat Marina has signed a MoU with ART Marine, engaging its services as advisers for the project's marina development, management and operations.
The deal, agreed at the Bahrain International Boat Show, cements expectations that Durrat Marina will be providing marina services that are in line with the most highly recognised international standards used for marina management.
Durrat Marina is one of Bahrain's prime examples of marina lifestyle development.
"Durrat Marina is intending to deliver on a new vision for a marina-based luxury development," said chief executive Waleed Saffy.
"Our project centres on the provision of a lively and distinctive area for water-based activities, and our marina development is at the very core of this.
"The marina will be able to berth over 400 boats ranging from 10m to 70m mega yachts.
"Clients will be able to enjoy a range of facilities and activities such as water sports, boat maintenance and servicing, service hangars, and dry boat parking, amongst others," he said.
"Our MoU with ART Marine is to ensure that every step of the marina's management and operations meets the highest international standards for operations and marina management," he added.
"We are very proud of the Durrat Marina project, and to have such an amazing marina managed by ART Marine makes us prouder," said ART Marine director Shaikh Khalid bin Mohammed Al Khalifa.
"ART Marine's knowledge in marina development, management, and our network of marinas will bring local and international expertise to our market.
"We thank Durrat Marina's management for their trust and are looking forward to operating this new landmark in the kingdom," he added.
As a seafront project, Durrat Marina brings together cosmopolitan living with a laid back yet vibrant lifestyle.
Also up and coming on the project's phase 1 of development are an exclusive set of sea-facing villas, with up to four rooms, luxury serviced apartments, residential apartment blocks, a dedicated yacht club in close proximity to the marina, and a promenade with cafes and retail outlets.-TradeArabia News Service
