Perfectly positioned as a glamorous gateway to the Red Sea, Sindalah will be the closest ultra-prime superyacht marina to Europe and the Mediterranean. Expected to become an iconic destination for the world’s yachting community, the maritime facility will offer 86 berths for yachts up to 50m (164ft) and additional serviced offshore buoys for superyachts up to 180m (590ft).
“Sindalah will be one of the most alluring and vibrant yachting destinations in the world thanks to its strategic location, outstanding amenities and stunning natural landscapes,” said Antoni Vives, head of urban development at NEOM. “This partnership with IGY is one of many steps we are taking to achieve our vision of reshaping the global yachting calendar, with NEOM located one day’s cruising distance from the Mediterranean Sea.”
IGY’s unique position and expertise will help Sindalah realise this goal and set a benchmark for premium customer experience. Once established, the marina will join IGY’s international superyacht marina network of 23 marinas across 12 countries – the only network of its kind in the world – as well as its exclusive superyacht membership programme IGY Trident.
Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas, commented: “Sindalah perfectly integrates with IGY’s global vision to connect the world’s most incredible destinations across our growing marina network. The addition of NEOM to the IGY platform provides superyacht owners, captains and charter guests unrivalled destinations, service and convenience. IGY is tremendously excited about the opportunity to promote this amazing new destination to the international yachting community.”

The Red Sea is home to over 2,000 marine species, 600 of which are endemic to its waters and cannot be found elsewhere in the world – from dolphins, turtles, dugongs, manta rays and whale sharks, to rare corals and colourful reef fish. On land, visitors to Sindalah will enjoy a redefined luxury island experience, with high-end premium hotels including Four Seasons and The Luxury Collection by Marriott, groundbreaking retail offerings, culinary dining from Michelin starred chefs and an exotic golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones and operated by IMG.
A visionary project comprising four exceptional regions – The Line, Trojena, Oxagon and Sindalah – NEOM aims to be a world leader in environmental conservation, with thriving businesses and outstanding residential offerings.
