The Saudi Arabian island resort is set to launch in 2024
NEOM has appointed JLS Yachts as a "key partner superyacht agency" for luxury island development Sindalah.
Located in the Red Sea off Saudi Arabia’s northwestern coast, Sindalah is one of NEOM’s 41 islands and will be home to a yachting ecosystem with more than 5,000 berths.
NEOM’s partnership with JLS Yachts will support Sindalah’s vision of becoming a global yachting destination, with the island located just 17 hours’ sailing from the Mediterranean.
The agency will provide a comprehensive range of services for the yachting community, including berthing, provisioning, bunkering, customs clearance, transportation and travel arrangements.
NEOM chief Urban Development Antoni Vives said: “Sindalah will demonstrate to the world another level of seamless luxury and invite the yachting community to a new seasonal destination in 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.”
JLS Yachts CEO Captain Stephan Corbett added: “As the largest and most experienced superyacht agency in the Middle East and northern Indian Ocean, we look forward to bringing our services to the Red Sea.
"With our new operational offices based in Jeddah and Riyadh, it offers us great exposure and services to our VVIP owners, captains and crew."
Sindalah will offer 86 berths for yachts up to 50 metres and additional serviced offshore buoys for superyachts up to 180 metres.
The partnership with JLS Yachts follows the June 2023 announcement that Monaco-based BWA Yachting will be establishing an office at the Sindalah marina.
