Revealed: Futuristic design for luxury yacht club and marina in the Middle East

23 May 2022 • Written by Katia Damborsky

Named Triple Bay Yacht Club, the renderings for an ambitious new project set across three natural bays along Saudi Arabia’s north-western coast have been unveiled for the first time.

The project is on track for completion in 2024, and it is expected to play a significant role in enhancing yachting activity around the Middle East and the Red Sea.

Features include a 10-hectare basin for hosting yachts of up 130 metres in length, plus an 80 metre Quai d’honneur for accommodating events including yacht shows, regattas, and other yachting events.

The design features an infinity pool that gives the illusion of the Red Sea flowing into the pool

The full-service marina will offer 120 berths in total, and it will be supported by a unique porte-cochere for discreet arrivals by tender.

The yacht club component of Triple Bay Club will cover 7,900 squares metres and cascade across four storeys, with features including a terrace restaurant, infinity pool deck and rooftop cabana lounge. Its distinctive look is inspired by the natural erosion of stones, and international architecture firm HKS is responsible for the design.

The interior features a rich palette of locally sourced materials such as stone, timber and leather

Work on the project is already well underway, with luxury development firm Amaala leading the project. Amaala is managed by The Red Sea Development Company and forms part of the Saudi Vision 2030 program.

“We anticipate that Amaala will become an international hub for luxury yachting, and as such, the yacht club required a world-class design, influenced by the surrounding natural elements and Arabic heritage, and underpinned by our commitment to sustainability,” said John Pagano, chief executive officer of Amaala.

“Amaala offers an unparalleled opportunity to shape a new tourism destination, and a new home for yachting on the Red Sea. It is a privilege to be involved as designers of this iconic yacht club, which is a centrepiece for the marina and set to evolve guest experience,” said Kevin Underwood, global head of hospitality at HKS.

To reduce its eco-footprint, the development is targeting a minimum LEED Gold standard for environmental sustainability.
