Bag your berth

Marina spots available for Dubai yacht owners.

Island Global Yachting (IGY), the luxury marina developer and management company, has announced the release of berths to the public at Anchor Marina on Palm Jumeirah.

Anchor Marina is set to open in the first quarter of 2009 and will be the first operational marina on Palm Jumeirah, providing state-of-the-art facilities to yacht owners.

The opportunity for the public to secure a marina berth follows a phased release of berths, firstly to brokers and charter operators and earlier in November 2008 to Palm Jumeirah residents, through an online auction, which received more than 1,100 visitors to the website.

Michael Horrigan, CEO Middle East and Europe, IGY said: "With the current short supply of berths in the UAE, many owners have had to leave their yachts in other locations such as the Caribbean and Mediterranean."With our marina developments in the Middle East we hope to supply enough berths to meet the increasing demand."
