Boating enthusiasts are expected to flock to Dubai Marina when the Yacht Club opens for business in the next few weeks. The man-made marina, one of the largest in the world, has been developed by Emaar Properties at a total cost of $1.2 billion.
Dubai Marina will eventually be home to between 80,000 and 100,000 residents and Dubai based property portal, Sandcastles-property.com, currently has over 260 properties listed for sale in Dubai Marina, from studio apartments through to luxury penthouse apartments and villas.
Paul Greaves, Dubai property manager for Sandcastles said: "The Yacht Club will be the jewel in the crown of Dubai Marina, the design is stunning and we expect visitors from across the Emirates and Europe to come and experience this fabulous new development in Dubai."
With over 550 berths when complete, the Dubai Marina is the largest waterfront property development in the region and is already home to several hundred residents and features shops, markets, restaurants and cafés along the vibrant Marina Walk.
Earlier this month the Tamani Hotel Marina, the tallest hotel within Dubai Marina, opened its doors to paying guests. However the centerpiece of Dubai Marina, the Yacht Club Marina, will not officially open for business until summer 2008.
