The luxury Anchor Marina, the first operational marina on Palm Jumeirah providing state-of-the-art facilities to yacht owners from all over the world, is set to open in the first quarter of 2009; this was announced on Sunday by Island Global Yachting (IGY), the luxury marina developer and management company.
The 590 berths located on both the East and West side of Anchor Marina for yachts between 10-30 m in length will be limited to one berth per person, and berthing agreements are for a period of five years. The marina has a modern infrastructure such as spacious concrete pontoons in conjunction with some of the most modern technology available to boat owners, including LED illumination, underwater lighting, wireless internet connections and personalised concierge services.
To reflect the prestige that is associated with Palm Jumeirah, great care has been taken to ensure that the structure and quality of service experienced at Anchor Marina will position it as one of the world's most well-appointed marinas. It will offer guests the choice of two clubhouses; one located on Anchor Marina East and the other on Anchor Marina West. The East Clubhouse will be designed for families whilst the West Clubhouse will have a sophisticated atmosphere with fine dining restaurants. Anchor Marina, delivered in partnership with Nakheel represents one of IGY's most prestigious projects.
"It is a wonderful opportunity for yacht owners to secure berths within this landmark marina and provide them with the chance of a berth in this highly sought after region. With the current short supply of berths in the UAE, many owners have had to leave their yachts in other locations such as the Caribbean and Mediterranean. With our marina developments in the Middle East we hope to supply enough berths to meet the increasing demand,” said Michael Horrigan, CEO Middle East and Europe, IGY – Khaleej Times
