P&O Marinas strategic partnership with Pindar Yacht Management

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 7th of June 2020: P&O Marinas has signed a strategic collaboration agreement with Pindar Yacht Management FZE (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.

Under the agreement, PYM will bring its experience as an international sailing business and brand to support the transformation of the P&O Marinas 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.

Mina Rashid Marina has a track record of growth in the UAE as a Regional Marine Community hub. The main driver of which is P&O Marinas’ desire to develop this important segment of the market, especially in terms of infrastructure, as well as supporting the promotion of Dubai as a global destination for tourism.

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. We are confident that Mina Rashid Marina will continue to grow in a post-pandemic scenario, as Dubai, the region and the UAE begin gathering momentum for economic recovery. Our partnership with Pindar Yacht Management is designed to contribute to Dubai’s future plans to position itself as the leading marine leisure hub for the region.”Andrew Pindar, Chairman, Pindar Yacht ManagementAndrew Pindar, Chairman, Pindar Yacht Management

Andrew Pindar, Chairman, Pindar Yacht Management, said: ”We are delighted to be part of this exciting new development in the region.  The facilities at Mina Rashid Marina are second to none, not only in terms of the infrastructure on shore, but also the superb sailing opportunities.  P&O Marinas’ vision and mission are very much in line with those of Pindar Yacht Management and we are very much looking forward to being part of the process to develop Mina Rashid Marina as a true global yachting destination.”

Following Mina Rashid Marina’s success in attracting some of the world’s largest yachts over the last few seasons, P&O Marinas has extended its management and operations to an additional four marinas across Dubai, creating lifestyle destinations for yachting enthusiasts. 

The team is currently revisiting the calendar of sailing events for this year so that P&O Marinas is able to welcome the world’s international regattas across their marinas, once the racing is able to resume.
