Maritime City unveils new eco-friendly facility for boat lift, cleaning and maintenance services
Dubai Maritime City, the world’s first purpose-built maritime centre and part of the Dubai World Group of companies, has announced that boat owners can now avail of new services within the integrated maritime centre including boat lifts, hull cleaning, general below waterline maintenance such as anode replacement, and re-launches in less than one hour. The new range of services were unveiled after Palm Marine Yacht Services recently completed the installation and commissioning of Sealift2, a unique rolling deck, floating dry dock platform at Dubai Maritime City.
The Sealift2 platform joins Dubai Maritime City’s wide array of maritime services and amenities and strengthens the integrated maritime centre’s capacity to serve the rapidly growing maritime sector, which is poised to accommodate up to 55,000 new berths within the next few years, substantially impacting the demand for lift, clean and maintenance services. Owned and operated by Palm Marine Yacht Services, the Sealift2 platform will lift all types of boats – motor and sail – of up to 50 tonnes in less than five minutes.
