Dubai Issues Rules For Marinas, Boating Clubs

The Dubai Maritime City Authority has issued a new resolution imposing further operational regulations and requirements on public and private marine clubs and marinas in Dubai. The regulations and requirements add to legislation governing the licensing of marine craft in the emirate of Dubai.

The DMCA said the resolution will help in the creation of an integrated framework to ensure compliance with the highest standards of maritime safety and best international practices.

According to Khamis Weld Gmeel, Senior Manager of Marine Traffic Operations, Dubai Maritime City Authority, the resolution requires that control towers oversee the movement of marine craft along the Dubai coastline, and that upcoming fuel stations be located at the entrance of every marina and marine club in Dubai. It also mandates the development of workshops for boat maintenance, sales of safety and navigation tools, and proper supervision and monitoring of safety and firefighting systems installed on marina sidewalks.

DMCA Executive Director Amer Ali stated: "The new regulations form part of the Authority's vision of creating a vibrant, secure and world-class maritime sector via the integration of maritime safety, operational efficiency and secure navigation. Marine clubs, marinas and recreational marine vessels are integral to the growth of the local maritime sector which is regarded as a key pillar in achieving comprehensive and sustainable development in line with the directives of the UAE leadership."

"Through the implementation of the recently launched resolution, we look forward to making a difference in the regulation of recreational marine vessels and local marinas in Dubai. This will have a positive impact on the emirate's maritime sector and cement its position among the leading maritime destinations in the world," Ali said.
