Aldar, an Abu Dhabi based property development investment and management company, today announced the appointment of Camper & Nicholsons Marinas (CNM), to operate Yas Marina on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Located at the heart of Yas Marina Circuit, home to the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Yas Marina welcomed its first guests in 2009 ahead of the inaugural race and has been providing premium services to its clientele ever since. With a capacity for 143 yachts from 10 metres to 90 metres, and additional visitor berthing for superyachts up to 150m, Yas Marina has been designed and built to the highest international standards.
CNM has now assumed full operation and marina management at Yas Marina with Cedric Le Rest, Marina General Manager, remaining in position under the direction of the CNM team. CNM will focus on incorporating Yas Marina into their portfolio of luxury marinas, and driving worldwide sales through integrated marketing.
Yas Island features something for everyone, from family fun at Ferrari World, to the Yas Links Golf Course set against dramatic views of the Arabian Gulf, which is accessible by boat from Yas Marina. With a full calendar of events on Yas Island, cruising options around Abu Dhabi’s two hundred uninhabited islands and great access to the region’s cosmopolitan cities and stunning coastline, Yas Marina is a truly unique international yachting destination and ideal home port.
Mohamed Al Mubarak, Deputy CEO of Aldar said: “With world class facilities, access to the iconic Yas Hotel as well as exciting attractions like Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Links Golf Course, Yas Marina is internationally recognized as Abu Dhabi’s flagship marina. We welcome Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, one of the most highly regarded international operators, as we look to further extend our international exposure.”
Nick Maris, CEO of Camper & Nicholsons, added: “It is a privilege to be part of the future of Yas Marina, already one of the world’s finest. Working with the existing excellent staff of the marina, we aim to use our specialist skills to further improve the client experience at Yas Marina and strengthen its position as a flagship international destination.”
