Yacht charter in Abu Dhabi
Dufour — 460 Grand Large (2017)
Description of Gery's sailboat
Test yourself as a sailor or just have a relaxing day sailing in a Dufour 460GL
I'm offering sailing day trips on board a beautifully elegant Dufour 460 Grand Large out of Emirates Palace Marina which is the state of the art marina of Abu Dhabi's landmark, the Emirates Palace Hotel in the direct neighbourhood of the new Presidential Palace also known as Qasr Al Watan. On departure and arrival Guests will be able to have the best views for both Palaces and during the cruise they will blow their mind with Abu Dhabi's skyline and iconic buildings. The marina is also a spit away from the scenic Corniche which is the perfect spot for anchoring to offer swimming and hiking on the famous Lulu island after a fun load of sailing on in the open waters of Abu Dhabi. I will also offer Guests more adventure experience by allowing them to try basic actions of sailing a boat if they want whilst the boat is safely captained. I will offer soft drinks and water only (in line with the UAE's strict alcohol policy) and light snacks for the duration of the trip which I estimate to last about 4-6 hours depending on weather conditions and Guest fatigue levels and can comfortably accommodate up to 6 Guests. We would depart from Emirates Palace Marina, sail through Abu Dhabi open waters up to approx. 10 nautical miles offshore and around Corniche waterfront touching Lulu island. Anchoring will be possible at many locations but the default plan is to do it on the Corniche waterfront where the water is safe, calm, temperate and provides a scenic view for Abu Dhabi's skyline. Arrival back to Emirates Palace Marina not later than the sunset. I'm a professional airline Captain in a 5 star Gulf Airline who brings experience and hospitality from over 10 years of experience in the industry. Sailing is a hobby for me but I'm keen to share the peace, the harmony and the fun sailing can give whilst keeping the same safety levels as in an airline business. Safety is number one priority as always. I hold an internationally recognised certificate from the Royal Yachting Association, the Day Skipper license which entitles me to safely skipper a yacht as a recreational activity. I'm a proud owner of a beautiful Dufour 460 Grand Large sailing yacht, 46 feet in size which is perfect for a comfortable cruising adventure on the calm waters of the Persian Gulf.
