Abu Dhabi MAR : The Pioneer in Yacht Services

Abu Dhabi MAR, is a renowned name in the yacht industry. Known for its award winning creations and state of art facilities, the United Arab Emirates based shipyard has gained tremendous recognition in the past recent years.

Abu Dhabi MAR already has a common sharing with CMN shipyard, in Cherbourg France. Moreover, the company in July 2009, acquired the famous Nobiskrug Shipyard in Rendsburg, Germany. Thus now, Abu Dhabi MAR has three shipyards under the name of “Abu Dhabi MAR group”.

Both Nobiskrug and CMN have already made their mark in the yachting industry before their mergers with Abu Dhabi MAR. Nobiskrug won the 2009 world superyacht award for its 74 meter motoryacht Siren, which was designed by Newcruise Yacht Projects in Hamburg. The ship yard already has 5 large yachts under construction in its ship building facility.

CMN also launched the first two yacht of its Line 60 series, Slipsstream and Cloud 9 in the start of 2009. Both the yachts were designed by the London based designer Andrew Winch. The shipyard also has a 60 meter yacht currently under construction.

Abu Dhabi MAR recently created a modern state of art facility in the Port Sayed area of Abu Dhabi in UAE. The new facility is presently serving 4 yachts which are under construction. The first launch of the shipyard will be a 465 foot long superyacht Swift 141, which will be later followed by another 445 foot long superyacht Swift 135. Both the superyachts are custom built yachts having steel hulls, which are acquired from the Royal Dutch Navy. The yachts have been provided with a propulsion system which would give a maximum speed of 26 knots.

It is said that out of the approximate figure of 75 yachts through out the world, which are of length 60 meters and longer and are sea faring around the world, the number of yachts represented by these three shipyards together, represent a significant portion of the global order book.

Abu Dhabi MAR is also known as the first true “full service” shipyard, having a facility of building custom yachts up to 200 meters to the highest international standards. Moreover, they also do ship repair and refit works. In addition to these facilities, it also provides services such as crew recruitment, training and management, supplying luxurious yacht items, onshore vessel management and logistic support, yacht insurance and brokerage, new construction and repair under DNV survey and classification.

Abu Dhabi MAR recruits from international managers from a number of yacht building nations and also provide skilled shipbuilders along with specialist subcontractors and suppliers to support them. With highly advanced technological facilities, Abu Dhabi MAR builds high quality, well engineered, finely finished, environmentally respectful custom yachts from the drawing boards of all world class designers. Abu Dhabi MAR is also associated with major European Shipyards, builders of fine yachts and military craft. Thus in total, the company provides the following services:
