The partnership has been announced and will put the island on the yachting map.
Neom is one of Saudi Arabia’s most ambitious megaprojects. The development aims to redefine urban living, and includes futuristic as well as luxurious projects. Now, Sindalah has announced that JLS Yachts, a leading Middle East-based yacht agency and concierge provider, will be the superyacht partner.
Sindalah’s island development will be located in The Red Sea in northwest Saudi Arabia. Scheduled to open in 2024, the island will be Neom’s first tourism destination, and is a 17-hour sail from the Mediterranean. Upon completion, the site will include 41 islands and a luxury yachting ecosystem with more than 5,000 berths. Plus, 86 berths for yachts up to 50 meters, and buoys for superyachts of up to 180 meters.
Neom has partnered with JLS Yachts, as it aims for Sindalah to become a global yachting destination. The site plans to create a yachting community and provide berthing, provisioning, bunkering, customs clearance, transportation and travel arrangements.
Antoni Vives, Chief Urban Development at NEOM, explained: “Sindalah will demonstrate to the world another level of seamless luxury and invite the yachting community to a new seasonal destination in the majestic waters of the Red Sea. JLS Yachts is a partner to help realise the bold vision of Sindalah as we welcome the world to the first physical showcase of Neom.”
Captain Stephan Corbett, CEO at JLS Yachts added, “We are very pleased and honoured to be selected as a key partner for Neom’s magnificent Sindalah Island on Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coastline. With our new operational offices based in Jeddah and Riyadh, it offers us great exposure and services to our VVIP owners, captains and crew.”
