Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City set for expansion
October 15th, 2014 – Doha, Qatar: Doha’s premier marina Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City has announced it will expand in response to increasingly high demand for more berths in Qatar.
Construction is now underway on 49 new modern floating berths, which will bring the marina’s total offering to 142 berths.
The expansion will create a larger display area for the upcoming Qatar International Boat Show 2014 (QIBS), which takes place for the second time at Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City from 11 – 15 November 2014.
The new berths will range between 8 and 10 metres initially to accommodate a higher number of small-sized boats, and will be available for agreements by 20 November 2014.
“We are delighted to announce this milestone expansion, which rounds off a fantastic year of achievements at Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City,” said Wayne Shepherd, General Manager of Mourjan Marinas.
“Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City has progressed quickly since construction work first began in October 2010, from being awarded Boat Owner Middle East’s ‘Most Interesting Marine Development’ in December 2013, to accruing Clean Marina accreditation in 2014.
“It is very pleasing to see an increasing demand for the boating industry in Doha, and we look forward to displaying the new docks when we welcome the industry’s leading exhibitors at next month’s Qatar International Boat Show 2014.”
Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City lies at the heart of the prestigious Lusail City development. Currently running at high occupancy, the marina is fast establishing itself as a thriving maritime hub for Doha and the region.
