Launched by Dubai Holding and Dubai Properties Group in May 2016, the AED 1 billion mixed-use Marasi Business Bay is well on track to becoming the city’s most sought-after waterfront destination. It features unique water homes with pools and floating restaurants and is located along the city’s newest attraction – the Dubai Water Canal.
Marasi Business Bay hosts the Park, the Pier and the Marina that will eventually comprise 800 berths in total, making it the region’s first purpose-built yachting hub.
Set for completion in Q3, 2017, the first phase of the marina will feature 157 berths varying in size from eight meters to 35 meters that are fitted out with all essential facilities for boat owners, including potable water, power supply, drainage and sewage in line with the highest international standards.
Abdulla Lahej, Group CEO, Dubai Properties, said: “The marina at Marasi Business Bay will leverage latest advances in construction and engineering for on-schedule completion, offering the city a new active urban lifestyle dimension and waterfront destination.”
Billed to become the next tourist attraction, the Marasi Business Bay marina will be constructed using state-of-the-art Seaflex technology, making it one of the few marinas in the country to employ the innovative environmentally-friendly mooring solution.
Seaflex provides secure moorings even under the worst weather conditions. The stable and secure self-regulating system elongates and retracts in a smooth, even movement according to the water levels.
