BWA YACHTING PARTNERS WITH SINDALAH, AS THE RED SEA’S FIRST SUPERYACHT DESTINATION GEARS UP FOR OPENING IN 2024
NEOM, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, 26 June, 2023 – BWA Yachting has today announced that it will establish an office at luxury island development Sindalah as the ‘Key partner superyacht agency in NEOM’. The office will provide services for the world’s most spectacular vessels, as Sindalah becomes the Red Sea’s long awaited first ultra-prime super yacht destination.
Rising out of the crystalline waters of the Red Sea off Saudi Arabia’s northwestern coast, Sindalah will define a new dimension of exquisite luxury travel. The island will be the first iteration of NEOM to be unveiled – introducing the world to the future of civilization – offering its inhabitants an idyllic lifestyle. Including Sindalah, NEOM will include 39 islands that will be a world leading yachting ecosystem with more than 5,000 yachting berths across.
BWA Yachting will assist on operations at Sindalah’s international superyacht marina, providing world-class services to the island’s yachting clientele. The office will be staffed by BWA Yachting team with decades of experience in the yachting industry to support captains, managers, and crews with anything they need to manage a superyacht, from customs and clearance procedures to provisioning, logistics, shipping, concierge and financial services. Onboarding the BWA Yachting team will ensure a seamless premium experience for customers as Sindalah becomes the new destination on the yachting calendar with six months of Winter sun a year.
Opening in early 2024, Sindalah will be a glamorous gateway to the wonders of the Red Sea and a sterling new destination for the world’s luxury travelers. The ultra-prime marina will offer 86 berths for yachts up to 75 meters and additional serviced offshore buoys for superyachts up to 180 meters. On land, Sindalah will be home to one of the most exotic golf courses in the world, restaurants with cuisine curated and managed by global Michelin star chefs as well as designer fashion and luxury retail with futuristic and experiential offerings.
For leisure seekers, Sindalah’s beach club will be like no other, hosted by the region’s top entertainment icons, while the Marine Activities Center will provide adventures to experience the magical marine life below the depths of the Red Sea. Three luxury hotels including a Four Seasons Resort and Saudi Arabia’s first Marriott International Autograph Collection Hotels property will offer exquisite accommodation experiences never before seen.
Surrounded by a diverse marine environment, Sindalah is also, importantly, being developed sustainably. Led by Italy’s Luca Dini Design & Architecture, the island’s design is inspired by the very coral reefs and waterscapes of the Red Sea surrounding it.
Antoni Vives, Chief Urban Development and Islands Officer at NEOM, said: “Sindalah will redefine the luxury island experience and become the most sought after yachting destination in the world, offering six months of Winter sun and less than a day’s sail from the ports of the Mediterranean. Working with BWA Yachting will allow us to tap into their expertise and provide the unparalleled yachting ecosystem and elevated experience for which Sindalah will become synonymous. This partnership represents an important step as we invite the world to set sail for Sindalah.”
BWA Yachting has strong experience working with superyacht owners and captains around the world, with a global network extending through the Mediterranean and Northern Europe to the Caribbean and the Americas to provide a seamless end-to-end experience for clients. BWA Yachting is also an official partner of the America’s Cup and other top superyacht events, and will support NEOM in the planning and organizing of exclusive events as part of a curated social calendar for the superyacht community.
Paschalis Patsiokas, CEO at BWA Yachting said: “We are honoured and excited to be invited by NEOM to establish our presence within this groundbreaking project. At BWA Yachting we are committed to providing world-class services to superyachts visiting Sindalah and eagerly look forward to creating captivating Neom itineraries, delivering extraordinary experiences for our clients in this spectacular new destination.”
Sindalah is currently in a rapid construction phase and is due to open in early 2024.
