Yas Marina Launches Their 2016 Race Week Berth Packages

by Yas Marina, 20th April 2016

Yas Marina has announced their berthing rates and packages for the highly anticipated 2016 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX. Expressions of interest are now open to the general public and yacht owners are encouraged to register early for what is expected to be another sell out year.

Confirmed again as the last race of the 2016 Formula 1® calendar, the world’s only twilight race returns to Yas Marina Circuit on 25th, 26th and 27th November. Track view and non-track view berths at Yas Marina give motor sport and yachting enthusiasts front row seats to the hyper speed action on and off the track.    

Starting at just AED 13,150, Yas Marina’s Race Week berthing rates include a generous allocation of Yas Marina guests passes, which provide access to track side pontoons and the post-race evening concerts. Berth holders are again guaranteed a packed programme of entertainment, including world-class, A-list musical artists at the after-race concerts.

As the place to see and be seen during the race weekend, Yas Marina is set to be the epicenter of the social scene offering a plethora of entertainment onshore across the 7 licensed restaurants, lounges and bespoke after race parties. 

Race Week berth packages enable yachts up to 150 metres to berth in the Marina from November 20 until November 27. Renowned for being one of the best superyacht marinas in the world, personal service, attention to detail, marina standards and vessel support are intrinsic to Yas Marina. Captains and crew can take advantage of the turnkey solutions that Yas Marina provides over the race weekend, allowing yacht owners and guest to enjoy the race. These include:

  • Assistance with Customs and Immigration clearance for Foreign Flag vessels
  • Onsite boat maintenance, repair and chandlery services
  • Yacht provisioning including onboard catering services from approved suppliers for food and beverages plus ice delivery
  • Private club car hire to transport guests around the marina
  • Platinum car parking inside the marina
  • VIP Courtesy Shuttle service transporting guests from the parking lot to the marina

Cedric Le Rest, General Manager of Yas Marina, concludes: “Each year, we experience a huge demand for Race Week berths. Since 90 percent of berths usually sell out before the end of August we strongly encourage yacht owners to submit their Expression of Interest before August so that they can secure their berth.’’

Annual berths are a great option for those who would like to secure their Grand Prix slot early, as they offer a plethora of year-round benefits in addition to a Race Week berth. Benefits include discounts at partner venues of Yas Island as well as highly competitive shore power rates.”
