destinations, today announced it has started construction work on the first marina within the Lusail City development in Doha, Qatar. Located in the Marina District of the prestigious Lusail development, the marina will start operating after Qatar National Day in mid December with services and facilities that will make it one of the premiere marina facilities in the region.
Mourjan Marinas IGY, who will undertake full responsibility for design, construction and operation of all marinas in the Lusail City development, is now leasing berths at the marina and will develop 96 modern floating marina berths catering for yachts of 10-40 metres in length. The marina will also include three on-water lounge areas, a shisha café, a juice bar and a family lounge area. Unique integrated misting technology will air condition the walkways during the summer season in addition to contemporary shade structures on the marina
Matthew Bate, Director of Operations for Mourjan Marinas IGY, said:
‘‘We are delighted to have started the construction of this marina which will combine elegantly designed facilities with world-class services to become one of the region’s premiere berthing facilities.”
The marina’s features will include underwater lighting, black and grey water ‘pump-out’ at the berths, a fuel service station, 24 hour security, a five-star concierge service, laundry service, a deck wash for all yachts and valet parking. In addition, the marina - designed as an eco-friendly facility - will also offer wi-fi services and a clubhouse.
Situated along the coast just north of Doha, the Lusail City development is set to become a thriving maritime hub, with a number of marinas serving the different segments, including private, business, and community marinas. This masterplanned urban development will be home to a self-sustaining community, comprising residential, commercial, retail, hospitality, resort, and entertainment venues.
Mr Bate added:
“The marina is the first of multiple marinas to be built in Lusail City and one of the region’s most exciting and ambitious projects.
“It will set new benchmarks for the yachting experience locally and internationally and will be the place to be for yacht owners in Qatar and beyond. This marina has been designed with the needs of the local market in mind and nothing like this has been built before in this region.
“As we expand our work on the Lusail City Marina development, we remain committed to providing the best equipped berthing facilities throughout the region.”
Mourjan Marinas IGY utilises its design, engineering, management and marketing expertise to benefit waterfronts around the world with the vision to be at the forefront of the maritime industry in the Middle East.
