Carrefour launches sail-through supermarket in Dubai for yachts and jet-skis

If you're feeling a bit thirsty while out jet skiing – or fancy a snack on the back of your yacht – then don't fret, because Carrefour has launched the world's first sail-through supermarket.

Bites and More by the Shore will serve customers six days a week from a custom-built "aqua pod" anchored at sea.

It features a range of 300 items including hot and cold snacks, beverages, fresh and dried foods, and selected non-food and personal care products.

Meanwhile, beachgoers can order from an app and have their delivery brought to them on Kite Beach, Jumeirah Public Beach and Al Sufouh Beach.

The store will be open for six days per week from 10am to 6pm.

Jet skiers and passengers in small sailing crafts can sail up to the aqua-pod and order at the window counter, pay and wait for their items.

Customers on larger sailing vessels in the area or on the selected beaches can phone through their order by dialing 056 400 3659 or place an order via the Aqua Pod app, which is available on Android and iOS.

A skiff will then deliver their order within a 45 minute target delivery time.

This is one grocery delivery service we can definitely get on board with...
