In an attempt to establish Dubai as an international yachting destination, D-Marin Dubai LLC, a joint venture established between Meraas, Dubai Holding and D-Marin, has begun management operations at three Dubai-based marinas.
The agreements executed between these three organisations aims to elevate Dubai’s position as a luxury maritime tourism destination. D-Marin Dubai LLC will be managing operations at Al Seef, Marasi and Jaddaf Waterfront marinas as well as providing technical consultancy to Meraas’ projects at Port de La Mer and Dubai Harbor. Through this collaboration, D-Marin Dubai LLC continues its efforts to develop marina management services in the Middle East and firmly establish Dubai as a luxury maritime destination as well as develop its booming economy further.
Meraas, whose portfolio comprises over 80 million square feet of total developed land, is a Dubai- based organisation that aims to develop the emirate’s cityscape “with a human-centric approach.”
Dubai Holdings, established in 2004, operates an impressive portfolio in 12 different countries across a variety of different sectors from tourism and hospitality to ICT and design. Its portfolio includes Jumeirah Group which has developed a variety of iconic buildings in the Middle East and TECOM Group, the owner and operator of many business districts in Dubai.
D-Marin manages 14 unique marinas in the Eastern Mediterranean and Gulf region, making it the largest international chain of marinas that promotes recreational yachting. Starting off operations in Turkey in 2003 its network expanded throughout this region over the years.
