Dubai Properties has appointed ART Marine, the region’s largest and best-known 360-degree 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, Dubai Properties’ maritime partner, 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.
Speaking on the occasion, 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, said: “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.”
Operational since 2017, the exclusive berthing location in the new Culture Village district offers the convenience of connecting to the sea during all tidal states. Boat owners can opt for a leisurely cruise along Dubai Creek or enter Business Bay via Dubai Water Canal. Moreover, the marina provides easy access to Palazzo Versace Dubai.
Culture Village is one of Dubai Properties’ defining mixed-use developments, located along the shoreline of Dubai Creek amid tranquil green surroundings. The destination brings the sought-after waterfront living experience to the emirate’s property market with its two distinct neighbourhoods – Dubai Wharf and Manazel Al Khor – that give residents and visitors a chance to step back from the hustle of urban life, while enjoying stunning views of Dubai Creek and the city in its background.
The marina overlooks the Canal Promenade fringed by a verdant double grass lawn, as well as a park with a wooden playground that has been a runaway hit with its youngest visitors. Spanning over 46,000 square metres, the all-new public space features granite-paved piazzas to match the opulence of the adjacent Palazzo Versace Dubai.
