Yas Marina, operated and managed by Camper & Nicholsons Marinas and one of the premier marinas in Abu Dhabi, has announced that berth occupancy has doubled in the last 6 months, due to a growth in the marine industry within the Emirate and the quality of the services and facilities offered at Yas Marina.
The General Manager of Yas Marina, Cedric Le Rest, commented, "We are extremely pleased to see the increased occupancy levels at Yas Marina and believe this is due to our extremely competitive annual berth rates - which now include an F1TM berth. Our VIP Privilege Card also offers berth holders a variety of discounts and value added services to Yas Island facilities. We expect to see the numbers continue to increase over the coming months, particularly following our participation at the Dubai International Boat Show which starts next week."
The Dubai International Boat Show represents a significant event in the region’s marine calendar and Yas Marina will be participating in the 20th anniversary event being held from March 13th - 17th 2012. Located at stand CH-11, staff will be available to discuss both the 2012 Annual Berth rates (starting from 16,455 AED inclusive of a berth at 2012 Formula 1™ week) and the 2012 Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Grand Prix> berthing tariffs which start from 10,395 AED.
The competitive tariffs, coupled with the success of Yas Island Show Weekends, featuring international superstars such as Madonna, Janet Jackson and Elton John have helped to reinforce Yas Marina’s position as an attractive home port for yachts of all sizes.
One superyacht to have recently taken an annual berth at Yas Marina is the 95m Indian Empress. Captain Jari justified his decision to berth at Yas Marina due to the ’competitive pricing and value for money’. Moreover, Jari’s decision was made even easier having been impressed with the ’world class services and amenities.’
Yas Marina features a variety of dining and entertainment options ranging from fine dining at Cipriani or Yotto, to more casual settings like Stars ’N’ Bars and the vibrant Allure Night Club by Cipriani.
Located at the heart of the Yas Marina Circuit on Yas Island and located 10 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport, 20 minutes from central Abu Dhabi and 45 minutes from Dubai, Yas Marina has 143 berths for yachts up to 150m in size. Visitors to the marina can enjoy easy access to pristine coastlines, 200 uninhabited islands and the nearby cosmopolitan cities.
