RSG, Monaco Marina Management in key deal for Amaala Yacht Club

MONACO, September 28, 2023

Red Sea Global (RSG), the multi-project developer behind regenerative tourism destinations The Red Sea and Amaala, is partnering with Monaco Marina Management (M3) to establish RSG’s Amaala Yacht Club as one of the world’s premier yachting destinations.
The partnership with M3, privileged partner of “La Belle Classe Destinations”, a certification owned and operated by the world-famous Yacht Club de Monaco, was confirmed during a signing ceremony at the Saudi Red Sea Authority stand at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Together, they will work to meet the criteria and standards to be certified as ‘La Belle Classe Destinations’ once in operation, a marker of excellence for yacht clubs and marinas around the world. The agreement also covers developing an exceptional event calendar, creating a sailing academy, supporting with training and recruitment, and providing seasonal, reciprocal opportunities for members, cadets and youth.
“The Amaala Yacht Club, with its signature architecture inspired by the rock formations that created our Triple Bay millennia ago, will be the stunning centerpiece of our marina development. With M3’s support, our facilities, operations, services and amenities will ensure our Yacht Club honors the striking landscape in which it is set and makes Amaala one of the world’s most distinguished yachting destinations,” said John Pagano, Group CEO of Red Sea Global.
‘La Belle Classe Destinations’ certification is awarded to yachting destinations that demonstrate a deep understanding of maritime ethics and etiquette, environmental protection, design aesthetics, educational and economic impact. Recipients become part of a global network of excellence, committed to building the future of sailing and yachting while maintaining these essential values.
“What excites me most about this partnership is the opportunity for training and knowledge transfer. Empowering Saudi nationals has always been at the center of our regenerative approach, and with our marina employees receiving best-in-class training both in Monaco and at Amaala, we are confident that we are fulfilling our promise to create destinations by the people and for the people of Saudi Arabia,”  Pagano added.
Designed by leading architecture firm HKS and sitting in a 10-hectare basin, the ultra-luxurious, four-storey Amaala Yacht Club boasts a 120-berth marina and can accommodate residents’ activities as well as yachting events, regattas, and launches. 
José Marco Casellini, CEO of Monaco Marina Management, said: “Red Sea Global’s vision for regenerative tourism closely mirrors our mission to promote sustainable yachting. We’re excited to help bring these ambitions to life and work together to put the Amaala Yacht Club and Saudi Arabia on the global yachting destination. Moreover, M3 being part of the collective “Monaco, Capital of Advanced Yachting” approach, we are glad to spread the initiatives of the Monaco Principality as a spearhead for responsible yachting”.
Phase One of Amaala – focused on the Triple Bay masterplan – is well underway, with the first guests set to be welcomed in 2025. It will consist of eight resorts offering upwards of 1,200 hotel keys. Once complete, Amaala will be home to more than 3,900 hotel rooms across 29 hotels, and approximately 1,200 luxury residential villas, apartments, and estate homes, supporting high-end retail, fine dining, wellness, equestrian and recreational facilities. – TradeArabia News Service
