The Marina

Central to the provision of large yacht visitor and residential berthing in the Emirates, Emirates Palace Marina boasts 167 berths, ranging from 12m to 140m metres, with dedicated large yacht facilities and unrestricted tidal access. Set within the grounds of Emirates Palace Hotel, the most expensive hotel ever built in modern terms, Emirates Palace Marina was designed as a stage for the region’s most luxurious yachts, high profile events and an exclusive welcoming haven for visiting yachts.

Simply put, this means we are not simply caretakers of the marina, we are active in assisting all yacht owners with their leisure pursuit. From assisting with boating skills to advice on upgrades, where to go, what to do, and how to get the most from owning a yacht in the UAE. This commitment to the yachting community and its environment is manifested in the international standards we have been awarded, most notably ISO 140001 (Environmental Management).

Located at the far West side of the Corniche, Emirates Palace Hotel is signposted on all major routes into Abu Dhabi. The marina is located at the far left side of the property, and is accessed directly through its own dedicated gate, Gate 3. Please follow security procedures to access the marina. Get the directions from Google Maps.

Emirates Palace Marina is set behind a protective breakwater at the entrance to the Mussafah Channel, at the Western side of Abu Dhabi. Approaching from any direction, the visual waypoint of the Safe Water Mark (Oc.15s, FD2) at 24-29-300N; 54-18-00E lines up for the main approach. From this point, head SSE, leaving the Marina Village Sea wall to port, and the Emirates Palace Hotel bay will open up ahead. Emirates Palace Marina (24-28-08; 54-18-48) is located immediately to starboard after the starboard mark set off the breakwater. For safety and security, UAE Coastguard patrols will stop any vessel without prior entry authorisation at the marina entrance, and verify the details of all arrivals. Therefore please contact Marina on arrival for on water administration assistance to ensure unimpeded access to marina.

Emirates Palace is the Abu Dhabi hub for Seawings. Our partners can either depart directly from the airport, or from their on-water docks. Driving time from the airport is about 30 minutes.

Arrival by yacht, either from Dubai, or from the other side of Abu Dhabi at Yas Marina, gives the visitor a chance to see the entire Abu Dhabi cityscape, and a full view of Emirates Place.

Some of the largest yachts in the world are available for hire/charter, with facilities and comfort to rival even those of the Emirates Palace. Whether used for arriving in style, entertaining family or friends en route from the airport to the hotel, or hosting international conferences, a super-yacht is both a secure and luxurious option. Of course, travelling by yacht increases transit time from the airport.

Up to three guests can arrive at Emirates Palace in a high-speed racing-boat (Powerboat). Feel the thrill of passing by the Abu Dhabi cityscape at over 170 kilometres an hour under the control of an experienced powerboat racing driver.

It must be noted that all the above services can be disrupted or rendered impossible by adverse weather conditions.
