Khalil Abujaber, Marina Manager at Al Mouj Muscat, said: “Our new maintenance facility has been designed to service and support our members with repair or refurbishment of their yachts. It is operational now and we are already getting positive feedback from our customers, as the service provided by RAE Marina is not only reasonably priced, but the quality of service and standards of operations are second to none.”
Commenting on its new location in Al Mouj Marina, Ahmed Al Shanfari from RAE Marine, said: “Al Mouj Marina is the ideal place for our new workshop as it is the most vibrant and well-renowned marina in the country. As it is in the heart of Muscat, it is easily accessible for our clients and those in need of our services, and as we aim to become the leading choice for marine solutions we are confident that Al Mouj Muscat is the perfect platform in which to do this.”
Khalil Abujaber further added, “It is fantastic that an Omani company will lead this facility which reflects Al Mouj Muscat’s continuous support to Omani SMEs and entrepreneurship. We are currently working on the infrastructure around the maintenance facility, as well as the chandlery shop that will open soon, adding even further value to our members and visitors, and there is still plenty more to come to our thriving Marina.”
