Emaar opens Dubai Marina Yacht Club
Dubai, November 13, 2008
Emaar Hospitality Group, the hospitality subsidiary of Emaar Properties, has opened doors to the Dubai Marina Yacht Club, a premier destination for marine enthusiasts.
The elegant clubhouse, situated along Dubai Marina canal, offers memberships to boat-owners while the public can enjoy an array of amenities including marine-themed restaurants and retail outlets.
Billed as the port authority for all operations and berthing along the 3.5 km Dubai Marina canal by the Arabian Sea, Dubai Marina Yacht Club will eventually cater to over 500 yachts from 10 to 35 m in length.
Dubai Marina will have four berthing areas in all, with the East Marina already open. A highlight of the club is the elegant clubhouse designed by architects Holfords with Hirsch Bedner Associates Design Consultants.
Steve Stiglbauer, general manager, Dubai Marina Yacht Club, said: “Dubai Marina Yacht Club is the first marine club in the extensive portfolio of Emaar and is our contribution to the rich marine sports heritage of the region. The club will drive the marine sports and leisure industry of Dubai and serve as the ultimate destination for marine enthusiasts and boat owners. The diverse array of specially tailored facilities for boat owners will greatly add to their convenience and make marine pursuits easier than ever before.”
He added: “The Dubai Marina Yacht Club also welcomes non-members. Apart from restaurants that offer spectacular waterfront views, the Club looks forward to familiarising them with the Marina-based lifestyle and inspiring them to be active participants in marine pastimes.” – TradeArabia News Service
