Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), the master developer of major tourism, cultural and residential destinations in Abu Dhabi, has announced the appointment of ART Marine, a marina management company, as operator of its marinas, located at the Eastern Mangroves complex and at Marsa Al Bateen.
The marinas will offer boat owners the opportunity to dock their crafts in distinct locations that offer access to a number of facilities and boutique services.
Located within the Eastern Mangroves complex, the Eastern Mangroves Marina features 30 berths that can house boats and yachts ranging from 8m- to 33m- long.
Marsa Al Bateen features two marinas that can dock a total of 372 vessels, which range from 10m to 30m in length.
It also features the GCC’s first commercial dry stack that can house up to 138 boats that are as long as 9m.
Sufian H Al Marzooqi, TDIC’s chief executive officer, said: “We are pleased to announce the appointment of ART Marine as our new marina operator. This reflects our ongoing commitment to providing high quality services to boat owners and their guests.
"We are confident that ART Marine will enhance our marine-based offerings in Abu Dhabi even further, and we look forward to welcoming boat owners to both Eastern Mangroves Marina and Marsa Al Bateen.”
Gregor Stinner, ART Marine’s chief executive officer, said: “Above our high levels of service interaction, our key success is that we speak the same language as our clients – not only in terms of the 10 national languages of our team – but also the understanding of boat ownership and its trials and tribulations.
"In this way, we can communicate effectively with our members, and truly anticipate their needs with ART Marine’s 360-degree leisure marine offering, from berthing to service, yacht sales to chandlery.”
