The two largest developers in Dubai have announced designs for modern and spectacular marinas that will be built in the city center. The creators of Dubai Creek Harbor believe that it will become the new Middle East Riviera.

Marina development plans are consistent with the vision of the development of maritime tourism and the yacht industry, promoted by the Government of Dubai and Dubai Tourism. The new investments aim to create from Dubai the world’s leading maritime center, which on the one hand will be attractive to foreign investors, and on the other will implement the best standards and practices. Currently, work is underway to create maritime-friendly solutions in the field of safety, navigation, efficient international visa service and increasing operational efficiency.

Emaar, a developer known among others from such investments as the Dubai Mall (the largest shopping center in the world), Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building) or the Dubai Fountain, the construction of Creek Marina is just finished. The new luxury Dubai marina will be built in the heart of Creek Island, a residential and recreational district of the city, located just 10 minutes from Dubai International Airport and the iconic Burj Khalifa.

As planned, the marina at Dubai Creek Harbor will be opened in December this year. The complex, next to the marina for 81 yachts and super yachts, will also accommodate a luxury yacht club, shopping, entertainment and gastronomic center as well as a new hotel belonging to the Vida Harbor Point chain. A special attraction of the marina will be a unique interactive anti-gravity fountain. The design of the marina is supposed to refer to the shape of oyster shells, thus underlining the beginnings of Dubai related to fishing for pearls. The creators of Creek Marina believe that it will become the new Middle East Riviera.

In turn, the largest competitor of Emaar, the developer Nakheel invests 15 million AED in the new marina at Palma Jumeirah in Dubai. By the end of this year there will be 44 parking spaces for units up to 30 meters long. After completing the project, a total of 600 berths for boats and yachts will be available on the Dubai Palm Tree.

The new marinas are located right next to the apartment complex Nakheel’s Azure Residence on the east trunk of the palm tree and on the newly formed wharf at the Pointe Nakheel Mall’s shopping and restaurant center. Nakheel is also building another six marinas, in its new flagship development project on the waterfront at Deira Islands. Planned marinas will accommodate a total of 614 boats and yachts with a length of up to 60 meters. The cost of this investment is AED 165 million.
