Dubai Marina Yacht Club to close down



Get the tissues out – a Dubai stalwart is set to close its doors for good. Dubai Marina Yacht Club, and everything that goes with it, will shut in January 2017, a spokesperson has confirmed to ShortList.

The much-loved Marina hangout, known for its busy ladies night and Saturday roast, will close to make way for a new development.

“Emaar is developing a new hospitality concept that will also feature a world-class yacht club in the current location of Dubai Marina Yacht Club in Dubai Marina,” said the spokesperson.

“Work on the project is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2017. As part of this exciting new development, Dubai Marina Yacht Club will only provide marina-related services to its berth holders but from a different office in The Address Dubai Marina hotel after January 2017. Visitors can also enjoy all charter services as normal with the bookings to be made from the new office.

“All club-related services and the operations of lifestyle, F&B and commercial amenities at the existing facility will be discontinued from January.”

Edgar, who broke the story, report that the new hospitality concept will include a new world-class yacht club.

So, there you have it, Marina residents. Make the most of it while you can.
