Dubai Properties has appointed ART Marine, the region’s largest leisure marine enterprise, as the exclusive operator of its marina at Culture Village.
The 60-berth marina, located between Garhoud Bridge and Business Bay Bridge, can accommodate vessels up to 50 metres long and includes larger berths for charter yachts.
The agreement mandates ART Marine to manage the entire premises, including water and onshore areas as well as complementary marina facilities and services, such as private parking, club car transfer for members and full staff assistance.
Marwan Al Kindi, executive director of sales and sales operations at Dubai Properties, said: “We aim to strengthen Dubai’s reputation as a city of the future and help drive its transformation into a major maritime tourism hub. In line with this priority, we are proud to expand our maritime portfolio as we officially launch operations at the Culture Village Marina which, in addition to Marasi Marina, is the first fully operational jetty on the Dubai Water Canal.”
Bruno Meier, chief operating officer at ART Marine, added: “We are proud to partner with Dubai Properties to manage the Culture Village Marina. This project will allow us to leverage our strategic approach and considerable experience in customer service, cruise tourism and yachting as we continue to build one of the finest collection of yachting destinations in the region.”
Culture Village is a mixed-use development, located along the shoreline of Dubai Creek and includes two neighbourhoods – Dubai Wharf and Manazel Al Khor.
