Without a Yas Marina pass at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, superyacht-goers won’t be able to step ashore and enjoy the on-land offerings. Read our guide to discover what passes are available, what they offer access to and how they can be upgraded for an even more exclusive experience.
If you charter a superyacht at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, you will be allocated a select number of Yas Marina guest and crew passes based on the size of your boat. The bigger the yacht, the more passes you will receive and be able to distribute to your guests.
Yas Marina Guest Passes
The standard passes distributed among superyachts berthed in the marina for the F1 fixture are known as ‘Yas Marina Guest Passes’ or ‘Yas Marina Daily Passes’. As the name suggests, one of these passes will be available for just one day at a time and will give access to the following areas:
- Yas Marina pontoon and boardwalk
- Oasis area of Yas Marina Circuit (not grandstand access)
- General admission access to the nightly post-race concerts at du Arena
- Thursday Yas Marina guest passes will provide access to the Pit Lane Walk
Visitors to the grand prix who would like fast-track entry into one of the Race-week after-race concerts, as well as front-row access, can upgrade their daily guest pass to include Golden Circle concert admission. For more details, read our exclusive after-race entertainment article.
Additional Guest Passes can be purchased at a cost of AED 1,365 for four days.
Yas Marina VIP Passes
To get even more out of your time at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, it is worth upgrading your standard guest pass to a Yas Marina VIP Pass. The privilege comes at an extra cost (AED 2,100 for four days) and includes the following additions:
- Friday support pit lane walk
- Palm Garden Rich List at Yas Hotel
A VIP pass lasts for four days, so holders will wear the same pass throughout the weekend.
Yas Marina Crew Passes
A number of ‘Yas Marina Crew Passes’, which allow access to the marina jetty and pontoons, will also be allocated to each yacht. Berth holders with yachts measuring 20 metres and above can purchase additional Crew Passes at AED 525 per pass.
Super Parks Pass
The ‘Super Parks Pass’ is a brilliant option for spectators at the grand prix who would like to venture beyond Yas Marina and experience some of the wonderful attractions available in Abu Dhabi. From Wednesday to Sunday, holders of a Super Packs Pass are eligible to visit the following:
- Ferrari World Abu Dhabi
- Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi
- Warner Brothers Abu Dhabi
A Super Park Pass costs AED 362.25.
