Characteristics

Description

Dubai Marina is the name of a district in the heart of what might be called the New Dubai. it is located on the seafront, 30 km southwest of the downtown city of Dubai, close to Palm Jumeirah.
Dubai Marina is a spectacular 3.5km man-made canal, which runs parallel to the coastline of Dubai and has two entry points. The north entrance of the canal is located immediately adjacent to the iconic Palm Jumeirah development, the large man-made island in the shape of a palm tree.
Arriving from sea, yachts may enter safely at either the northern or southern entrance, taking note that there are six fixed road bridges that span the canal at various locations. Each of Dubai Marina Yacht Club’s four marinas have slightly different height restrictions according to the various bridge heights.
Tidal range in the United Arab Emirates averages two metres at spring tide. Approach and canal depths within Dubai Marina are at least 2.5m at lowest astronomical tide (L.A.T.)
Set in the heart of ‘new Dubai’, Dubai Marina Yacht Club (DMYC) has rapidly gained a reputation as one of the renowned private yacht clubs of the region, with a purpose built clubhouse forming the centre-piece of four distinctive marinas. Arrayed along the length of a remarkable 3.5km canal, the marinas provide sheltered berthing for over five hundred yachts, in a setting that is simply unrivalled.
