ART Marine to boost expansion plans

Dubai-based marina management firm foresees strong growth in the region
Dubai-based ART Marine Group continues its expansion programme with eight marinas now under its management in the Middle East Region.
Speaking to IBI during the recent Dubai International Boat Show, COO Bruno Meier revealed that last year the company expanded with three new management contracts.
Two agreements have been signed with the Tourist Development and Investment Company (TDIC) in Abu Dhabi, which is a Government linked company responsible for developing tourism in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
“The two projects with TDIC are the Marsa Al Bateen Marina, which also has one of the first dry stacks in the Middle East, shortly to become operational. We also manage another TDIC Marina at the Eastern Mangroves in Abu Dhabi, which is an attractive tourism site adjacent to the large Mangrove conservation area. Operations will also shortly start at the new Marina Al Zorah in the Emirate of Ajman,” Meier explained.
Besides the three new marina operations, ART Marine Marinas also manages another five existing facilities, the flagship Emirates Palace Marina and Al Bandar marina both in Abu Dhabi, the Lagoon in the Emirate of Ras Al Kaimah, Ayla Marina in Jordan and Soma Bay on the Red Sea in Egypt.
Meier went on to say that operational procedures have been standardised across the group’s marinas for efficiency.
“There are now more new projects in the pipeline in the UAE than at any time since 2008 including six marinas in the building stage in Dubai and more in the planning concept stage,” he said. “The creation of the Dubai canal opened in late 2016 has really changed the face of Dubai and is opening even more projects.”
ART Marine Marinas operates a network of marinas in the UAE, Egypt, and Jordan. The company also has plans to expand in the Mediterranean, Red Sea, Indian Ocean, South East Asia and China.
