REVEALED! THE FUTURISTIC DESIGN OF THE UNDER DEVELOPMENT LUXURY YACHT CLUB AND MARINA IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Combining luxury with art, culture and wellness, the Middle East will become the year-round destination, hosting an intriguing mix of heritage and state-of-the-art facilities catered to offer the most exceptional experiences.
With the idea of eco friendly in mind, Amaala will be powered by renewable energy and will be home to more than 25 luxury hotels, 900 residential villas and estate homes, as well as the top-of-the-line retail and fine dining facilities.
Concerning the under construction yacht club, named “Triple Bay Yacht Club”, for now we just have the stunning renderings to observe, which already give a great idea of what this ambitious new project across the natural bays along Saudi Arabia’s north-western coast will set to be like.
This project is on track for completion in 2024, and it is expected to play a significant role in enhancing yachting activity around the Middle East and the Red Sea.
Exceptional features rarely seen before will be included, such as a 10-hectare basin for hosting yachts of up 130 metres in length, plus an 80 metre Quai d’Honneur for accommodating events, yacht shows, and regattas. The full-service marina will offer 120 berths in total, and it will be supported by a unique porte-cochere for discreet arrivals by tender.
Envisioned by the internationally renowned architecture studio HKS, the yacht club – that spans 7,900sq/m across four levels – takes its shape from the unique rock formations on the Saudi coastline with its cantilevered terraces echoing the natural shape of the surrounding cliffs, eroded over time by wind and sea.
From an interior standpoint, a sea-meets-land concept runs through the bars, lounges and restaurant with intelligent interpretations of traditional Arabian homes that reveal a calm and confident palette of locally sourced natural materials such as stone, timber, leather and metal. Sweeping curves and artisanal finishes allude to the sun, sand, wind and water.
From a eco-friendly standpoint, there are also sustainable efforts that are being conducted. For example, to reduce its eco-footprint, the development is targeting a minimum LEED Gold standard for environmental sustainability.
Althaus Luxury Yachting is actively participating in this project and, given the company’s new acquisition, the company is currently expanding in the Middle East. For additional information contact us!
