Sindalah yacht repair centre, first of many for Neom

SAUDI ARABIA: Superyacht maintenance company MB92 Group has entered into a partnership with Neom to establish a 10,000m² (107,600ft²) yacht repair facility at Sindalah on the Red Sea.

The partnership aligns with the imminent opening of Sindalah in 2024 and will be the first of several yacht repair centres in Neom, the futuristic and controversial green region that is being built from the ground up as a “living laboratory”. The yards are planned to meet the anticipated demand of a growing number of visiting and residential yachts in the region in coming years.
The new facility will provide yacht owners travelling to the Red Sea with access to MB92 Group’s experience in addressing the intricate repair demands of yachts and superyachts. It also mirrors Neom’s vision of building a maritime destination in the region, with both partners committed to offering dependable, efficient and sustainable solutions for maintenance or repair requirements. As such, the construction of the new centre will prioritise sustainable development within its design, processes and equipment.
Neom Islands executive director, Aayush Killa, said: “Teaming up with MB92 Group reflects our commitment to becoming a distinctive yachting destination. This venture embodies our dedication to delivering world-class infrastructure and services to support yachts visiting the Red Sea.”
Pepe Garcia-Aubert, chairman MB92, said the Group was extremely excited to be a part of the Neom project. “We envision this as merely the beginning of a lasting and meaningful collaboration, allowing us to provide the local yachting community with a world-class refit and repair service in this incredibly beautiful region with so much to offer.”
The centre will commence operations with a comprehensive repertoire of services including onboard electrical, mechanical and hydraulic system repairs. The centre will be capable of welcoming yachts of all sizes for in-water works and will extend its expertise to vessels of up to 40m (131ft) in length for drydock operations.
