Under the patronage of DP World’s subsidiary P&O Marinas and initiated and co-organised by Fabulous Yachts, The International Superyacht Summit, one of the most anticipated events in the yachting tourism sector, is scheduled to be held on the 8th and 9th of December 2021. Held in collaboration with key stakeholders like Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism and Dubai Maritime City Authority, the event will be held at the iconic Queen Elizabeth 2, anchored at Mina Rashid Marina in Dubai.
The International Superyacht Summit has garnered global attention and gained the confidence of the national and international yachting community. Constituting an integral part of P&O Marinas’ strategy, the summit will lead the way in establishing Dubai and the UAE as preferred yachting destinations in the Middle East.
Featuring world-class ports and superyacht berths with state-of-the-art facilities, the UAE has an ideal setup for a thriving yachting tourism industry. Dubai especially has attractive and competitive advantages including suitable berth spaces, dedicated support facilities and its strategic location along a beautiful coastline.
Hamza Mustafa, Chief Operating Officer, P&O Marinas said: “The UAE has a diversiﬁed economy with tourism as one of its core pillars. Capitalizing on this country has established itself as an exclusive, luxury yachting destination. At P&O Marinas, through our collection of sought-after yachting and coastal destinations, our sole purpose is to develop and promote Dubai as a comprehensive maritime hub and a global destination for marine tourism. Our assemblage of marinas is one of the most comprehensive in the Middle East, with a total capacity of 1,200 wet berths, 600 dry berths, and an ability to accommodate 60 superyachts ranging between 25m and 160m. In addition to this, we are continually working to ensure that the Emirate remains the epicentre for yacht and superyacht owners.”
