RAK Maritime City, RAK’s fifth port facility and the UAE’s newest maritime free zone, was officially launched on Monday, the 16th of May 2011 by His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah (RAK).

The launch event also had the presence of Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Crown Prince of Ras Al Khaimah, and several other sheikhs, members of the diplomatic corps, senior officials and business leaders, including Gulf Craft.

Set up with an investment of Dh520 million and spread over an area of 800 hectares (8 million sq metres), the new maritime industrial park boasts a new dedicated harbour covering 820,000 square metres of water, and almost 5 km of new quay wall with private/exclusive use jetties.

Gulf Craft was proud to attend an event like this, example of the significant and continued government investments in the marine industry in the Gulf, and in the United Arab Emirates in particular.
