Pearl-Qatar marinas win global award


The Pearl-Qatar officials with the award.

Doha • The Pearl-Qatar marinas were awarded 'The Best International Marina Award' during the CNBC International Award Ceremony held at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. This is in addition to two other CNBC Arabia Awards - "Best Development-Qatar" and "Best Marina-Qatar".

The Pearl-Qatar's marinas are part of the joint venture between United Development Company (UDC) - owner and developer of The Pearl - Qatar-and marina experts in Europe and the Middle East, Ronلutica.

Ronلutica's mission is to provide a complete range of integrated marine leisure services for yachts and their owners. It has been involved in the design, manufacturing, installation and management of marinas for over 20 years. One of their recognized qualities is their passion for the sea and their collaboration with international research centres and universities to integrate state-of-the-art solutions and equipment into their marinas.

Amongst their current projects is managing the three marinas at The Pearl-Qatar: Porto Arabia, Costa Malaz and Viva Bahriya.

Porto Arabia is the largest of the marinas. It will have a residential population of 15,000 in high-rise apartments and townhouses overlooking the marina and boardwalk.

The Porto Arabia marina will support 785 vessels of 10m to 60m size. Facilities will include a fuelling berth at the entrance of the marina, direct connection to vacuum sewage system in individual berths, changing rooms and shower facilities for visiting yachtsmen, and taxi and ferry services to Doha City and the airport.

The marina in Viva Bahriya will accommodate more than 100 vessels of 15m and below. It will be equipped with a fuel and pump-out berth, a major Yacht Club with added services like sailboards, boat chartering, water-skiing and a diving school. The Pearl-Qatar's boat maintenance facility will be located in Viva Bahriya and will be equipped with tie-up maintenance berths, slipway, boatlift, maintenance workshops, offices, chandlery and dry storage facilities.

As for the Costa Malaz marina, it will host The Pearl-Qatar's premier sailing club. It is located in the only northern bay. The location and arrangement of the marina, on the edge of an exclusive and secluded villa area, is designed to minimize its impact on the bay and its residents. It will have 117 wet berths, a sailing club house and chandlery.

I would love it if it was like this!!! Unfortunately the quality of beaches/sands in such artificial islands is not that spectacular as they intend to to show in such pictures. The main reason is that these sands brought up from the sea bed, and are exposed to strong erosion factors .... see the Palm Jumeira in Dubai, after more than two years of completion beaches look below average ... I am still not convinced about it compared to beaches on natural small islands, in the Maldives or the Bahamas for instance ...

Dubai aims at being a huge tourist spot.

Doha aims at being an advanced city on par with Tokyo.

From the point of view of development, then I hope so ^_^
