Dubai Maritime City is carved into 6 prime zones:
1. The industrial precinct
This sector is a hub for ship repair facilities, yacht repair and manufacturing, as well as workshop units. The precinct will be overseen by the management of ‘Jadaf Dubai’. A 1,270-meter stretch of wet berthing has been made available in this precinct, alongside 42 dry berths of various sizes.
The inclusion of yacht building and repair facilities taps on a growing leisure boating industry. The large number of berthing spaces available here alleviates a space crunch for boats in Dubai. More than 100 workshops and warehouses complete the industrial precinct, offering a comprehensive range of facilities to businesses.
