Situated on Yas Island, Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi has now firmly established itself as the premier Middle Eastern destination for superyachts. The 227-berth marina caters for superyachts up to 150m LOA and gives visitors access to pristine coastlines, uninhabited islands and the nearby cosmopolitan cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
An expansion development plan was launched in October 2013 to enhance and complement the growth of Yas Island as a leading tourist destination. This development has helped to transform the marina into a vibrant dining, lifestyle, fitness and entertainment centre, which features seven new restaurants with large terraces with panoramic views, a pedestrian promenade, plus charter operators, fitness facilities, a chandlery and more.
One of the major attractions of Yas Marina is the Yas Marina Circuit, home to the annual Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, as well as a calendar of various other motorsport events and experiences.
The development of this luxury port includes a Ferrari theme park, a water park, and residential areas with houses, hotels and private beaches.
