Durrat Marina Signs with UMT for Marina Development

30 November 2011: Durrat Marina has awarded a contract for development of phase one of its main pontoon for the project’s 400 berth marina to United Marine Trading (UMT); a leading specialist in the design and construction of such marinas. Executive Committee Chairman, Ahmed Al Qattan, noted “The concept and lifestyle behind Durrat Marina is anchored by the provision of a lively and distinctive area for water-based activities, the 180,000m2 marina being developed is at the heart of this. Awarding the pontoon development to UMT is essential to ensuring the highest quality partners are associated with this project.” Further expanding on the concept, Mr. Jassim Al Jowder, Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee explained “at completion the marina will berth over 400 boats ranging from 10m to 70m mega yachts, and will enjoy a range of facilities and activities such as water sports, complete boat maintenance and servicing, service hangars, and dry boat parking, amongst others. We believe that the provision of unrivalled marina services will make Durrat Marina a destination for boating enthusiasts in Bahrain and across the region.”UMT, which has signed on to commence development of phase one of the marina, has an established track record in the Kingdom of Bahrain and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The company is dedicated to enabling and delivering exceptional and innovative marina solutions. Out of the five total phases needed to complete the marina development, this first phase delivers berthing of up to 90 boats ranging from 10m to 30m in size. On the occasion of the signing, Mr. Bassam Al Hajj, General Manager of UMT said “This is an exciting milestone in Durrat Marina’s development, and we are thrilled to be the chosen partners for this phase of the project. To date, we have already worked closely with the team at Durrat Marina, in terms of marina feasibility and design, which has enabled us to better appreciate the deliverables for this impressive project.” On the subject of additional plans within the Marina, Mr. Waleed Saffy said, “as a luxury seafront project, Durrat Marina brings together cosmopolitan living with a laid back and relaxing lifestyle. Phase 1 of the development which we have recently launched and which has already captured a great deal of interest, includes an exclusive set of sea-facing villas on the main island, luxury serviced apartments, residential apartment blocks, a dedicated Yacht Club in close proximity to the marina, and a promenade with cafes and retail outlets.”
