Abu Dhabi Yacht Charter Guide

Where enigmatic desert lands fuse with innovation, ambition and luxury.

The largest emirate of the United Arab Emirates, in recent years Abu Dhabi has begun to emerge from the shadow of its neighbour Dubai. Just 50 years ago it was a quaint fishing village comprising a fort, a few coral buildings and a smattering of barasti huts yet today it is one of the globes most exciting and ambitious destinations while still retaining a relaxed and traditional feel.

One of Abu Dhabi’s most famous and successful accomplishments has been the Yas Island development. Desinged by the renowned Grand Prix architect Hermann Tilke, the ground-breaking Yas Marina circuit each year plays host to the prestigious Abu Dhabi Grand Prix that has quickly become a leading Formula One event. This is an ideal way to incorporate an event into a private yacht charter and join the armada of spectacular superyachts that congregate in the marina to enjoy trackside views of the action. Other notable events in the region are the Abu Dhabi Film Festival and Gourmet Abu Dhabi which have also made their highly acclaimed debuts in recent years.

The picturesque Corniche is the perfect spot of an early evening stroll, finishing up at the beautiful Heritage Village - an ersatz old fortress that tries to recreate the Abu Dhabi of yore through camel enclosures, Bedouin tents and traditional artisans. The Corniche Beach is endowed with powdery sands, translucent sea and has ample watersport opportunities that take full advantage of the Arabian Gulf surroundings.

Follow this by dinner at the Emirates Palace Hotel, said to be the most expensive hotel ever built.  It is home to the stylish Hakkasan restaurant-lounge and a long list of delicious cocktails including the Hakkatini (orange flavored vodka, Campari, Grand Marnier, apple juice). For more traditional cuisine try Mezlai, a selection of outdoor tents serving local specialities such as shark velouté and lamb nachif.

An Abu Dhabi yacht charter wouldn’t be the same without indulging in some retail therapy amongst its designer boutiques and bustling souks. Arabia meets Avant Garde in a winding maze of coloured glass and wood in the vibrant Souk at Central Market whilst the Souk Quaryat Al Beri sprawls in all directions with canals, boutiques, restaurants and buzzing nightspots.
