P&O Marinas has signed a strategic collaboration agreement with Pindar Yacht Management (PYM), for the development of a water sports academy, a recreational club, an exhibition space and a range of associated marine leisure services and facilities in Dubai’s Port Rashid.
Under the terms of the agreement, PYM will bring its experience as an international sailing business and brand to support the transformation of the P&O Marina’s facility into a world-class recreational hub for the sport and the wider yachting industry. In addition, PYM will organise sailing and promotional activities using its two Volvo Ocean Race Yachts, customised and branded to P&O Marinas’ marketing purposes. The yachts, Mina and Marina, will be moored at Mina Rashid Marina.
According to Mohammed Al Mannaei, CEO, P&O Marinas and Executive Director, Mina Rashid, said, “The partnership between P&O Marinas and Pindar Yacht Management sets the stage for the next phase in the development of Mina Rashid Marina, and provides a boost to our on-going work of transforming it into the region’s largest and best superyacht destination.”
Mina Rashid Marina’s has in attracted some of the world’s largest yachts over the last few seasons. To build on that success, P&O Marinas has recently extended its management and operations to an additional four marinas across Dubai.
