Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi’s premier lifestyle destination to dock, dine, and discover, has been awarded the esteemed 5 Gold Anchor Platinum accreditation by The Yacht Harbour Association (THYA), the industry’s oldest and most respected marina association. The coveted award positions Yas Marina as the first marina in the UAE and GCC to be awarded with the industry’s highest accolade with TYHA having only awarded five other marinas the distinguished 5 Gold Anchor Platinum accreditation.

“We could not be prouder to have been awarded the 5 Gold Anchor Platinum status. The reward is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of our team at Yas Marina to deliver the highest standard of service to its members and visitors, as well as the state-of-the-art facilities we provide. We’re honored to be placed amongst the best in the world and will strive to keep raising the bar,” said Billy Canellas, General Manager of Yas Marina.

The Gold Anchor Award Scheme has been recognised as a leading worldwide marina accreditation programme for over 25 years. Over the last decade, Yas Marina has been established as one of the premier destinations in the UAE for yachting enthusiasts. Home to some of the largest superyachts in the world (up to 175m), 93 dry stack berths and an on-site fuel station, Yas Marina offers a dedicated member concierge, member and crew benefits program, and a vibrant shore-side destination. It also boasts attractive packages for visiting international boats as well as competitively priced annual tariffs including berthing packages during the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. 

The iconic waterfront destination is home to a variety of licensed outlets and leisure experiences together with comprehensive sports and watersports amenities.
