Marina Bandar Al-Rowdha joins ART Marine Marinas' "Destinations" network.

Marina Bandar Al-Rowdha, the largest, oldest and most prestigious marina in Oman, joined “Destinations” the international network of exclusive marinas created by ART Marine Marinas, the leading marina management company in the Middle East. This alliance creates more opportunities for relationship between the marinas in the GCC region. The new partnership offers reciprocal benefits such as three days free berthing, discounted F&B and enhanced services at all the marinas affiliated to the ART Marine Marinas network.

Bob Looker, General Manager at Marina Bandar Al-Rowdha says:
“We are delighted to be a part of the Destinations network and look forward to a long and successful association with our colleagues around the world. Marina Bandar Al-Rowdha has a lot to offer, located as we are in the very heart of the fantastic cruising ground that is coastal Oman. In addition, we also boast world class big game fishing on our doorstep, annual visits from half a dozen great whale species, plus dolphins and turtles. Wreck diving, snorkeling and golden deserted beaches are available all within a very short boat trip from our entrance.”

“I am pleased to announce that Marina Bander Al Rowdha is the latest addition to our network of marinas around the globe. This marina is particularly dear to my heart since I managed it back in 2006, and I warmly welcome MBAR to our “Destinations” family; this alliance should benefit all yacht owners in the region and work in favor of the development of yachting in the GCC. “Destinations” is not only about offering additional privileges to our berth holders, but also aims at creating stronger relationships and communication between the best and most exclusive marinas in the world.” commented Bruno Meier, the Chief Operating Officer at ART Marine and Head of the Marina Division.
