TDIC Appoints Art Marine as operator of the Marinas at Eastern Mangroves and Marsa Al Bateen

Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), the master developer of major tourism, cultural and residential destinations in Abu Dhabi, announced the appointment of ART Marine, a leading marina management company in the Middle East, as operator of its marinas located at the Eastern Mangroves complex and at Marsa Al Bateen.

The marinas offer boat owners the opportunity to dock their crafts in distinct locations that offer access to high-quality facilities and boutique services. The Eastern Mangroves Marina, located within the Eastern Mangroves complex, features 30 berths that can house boats and yachts ranging from 8 to 33 metres long. Marsa Al Bateen features two marinas that can dock a total of 372 vessels and which range from 10 to 30 metres in length. It also features the GCC's first commercial dry stack that can house up to 138 boats that are as long as nine metres.

Mr. 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."

Mr. 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."

Among the services that boat owners can utilise include cleaning, chandlery (boat supplies), boat registration, and 24-hour berthing and guest assistance. Moreover, owners can take advantage of Destinations, ART Marine Marinas' international network of exclusive marinas that offers benefits including substantial privileges and discounts when staying at the marinas of the network.

"The UAE is renowned for its high levels of hospitality and service, and this is something we continue through to people's boating experiences, and when it comes to yachting, ensuring members have the least inconvenience in arriving, getting their boat out on the water, returning and then administering their boating experience are the key areas we focus on. By creating a smooth process of transition for boat owners and their guests, it sets them up for a great day out on the water," Mr. Stinner added.

Boat owners interested in registering their crafts at either the Eastern Mangroves Marina or Marsa Al Bateen can call the capitainerie on +971 (2) 6354974.
