NEOM Partners with MB92 Group for Yacht Repair Centre at Sindalah

NEOM, in collaboration with MB92 Group, unveils plans for a state-of-the-art 10,000sq/m yacht repair facility at Sindalah on the Red Sea.

NEOM has partnered with the prominent superyacht maintenance company, MB92 Group, to introduce a cutting-edge yacht repair facility spanning 10,000sq/m at Sindalah, a luxurious island and yachting hub located on Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coast.

Scheduled to coincide with the opening of Sindalah in 2024, this will be the first yacht repair centre among several planned within NEOM. The move anticipates the growth of visiting and resident yachts in the region over the next few years.

This new facility promises yacht owners travelling to the Red Sea access to MB92 Group’s extensive expertise in handling the intricate repair needs of yachts and superyachts. It mirrors NEOM’s vision of developing a maritime destination, with both partners committed to providing reliable, efficient and eco-conscious solutions for maintenance and repair requirements. Notably, the construction of the centre will prioritise sustainability across its design, operations and equipment.

“Teaming up with MB92 Group reflects our commitment to becoming a distinctive yachting destination,” said NEOM’s Chief Urban Planning and Islands Officer, Antoni Vives. “This venture embodies our dedication to delivering world-class infrastructure and services to support yachts visiting the Red Sea.”

Echoing Antoni Vives’ sentiments, MB92 Group Chairman, Pepe García-Aubert, said: “We are extremely excited to be a part of the remarkable NEOM project and embrace the opportunity that this partnership represents. 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 repair centre is set to kick off operations, offering a comprehensive array of services, including onboard electrical, mechanical and hydraulic system repairs. Capable of accommodating yachts of all sizes for in-water works, the centre will extend its specialised services to vessels of up to 40m in length for drydock operations.
