Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) has opened docking services for private yachts and boats at Al Garhoud Marine Workshop.
Mohammed Abu Bakr Al Hashmi, Director of Marine Transport at RTA’s Public Transport Agency, said: “The docking/undocking services at Al Garhoud Marine Workshop include lifting of boats and outdoor maintenance yards fitted with water and electricity services for boats and yachts measuring up to 20 metres.”
Located in the middle of Dubai Creek, Al Garhoud Marine Workshop will be easily accessible to boat and yacht owners, helping them benefit from the competitive prices being offered.
Maintenance services at the workshop will be available from 8am to 5pm and docking/undocking services will take place between 9am to 4pm every Saturday to Thursday.
“The service is available to individual owners of boats and yachts as well as tourist companies seeking to keep their boats and yachts ready to offer top services to clients,” Al Hashmi added.
RTA will only offer docking/undocking services and the usage of outdoor yards. Owners will have to bring in their selected maintenance firms to carry out the required maintenance services.
