Dubai developer Nakheel is spending $4.1m (AED15m) to develop two marinas at its Palm Jumeirah development.

The marinas will increase Palm Jumeirah’s boat mooring capacity, and bring the total number of berths on the island to 600.

Majestic Marine Engineering will build the new facilities, and Applied Technology and Management Inc is the project’s consultant.

Upon completion this year, the marinas at Nakheel’s Azure Residences complex and The Pointe will accommodate 44 boats and yachts up to 30m long.

They will add to Nakheel’s two operational marinas on Palm Island, which are located at Palm Views East and West, and are running on full capacity with 556 moorings.

Away from Palm Jumeirah, Nakheel is building six marinas, worth $45m (AED165m), at its waterfront master planned development, Deira Islands.

“Between them, they will accommodate 614 boats and yachts up to 60m long,” Dubai Media Office reported.
