Camper & Nicholsons and Saudi Arabian development NEOM have come together for Sindalah, the Red Sea's Pinnacle Yachting Destination

Camper & Nicholsons will collaborate with NEOM’s Sindalah development, bringing its expertise and providing its full suite of yachting services to the island.

Located at the gateway to the Red Sea, in north-west Saudi Arabia, Sindalah is set to open in March, and will introduce a whole new season within the yachting calendar. Sindalah emerges as a captivating winter retreat, seamlessly complementing the allure of the Mediterranean summer circuit, and promising an unparalleled yachting experience on a global scale.

Camper & Nicholsons, with a legacy spanning over two centuries, lends its yachting expertise to the project, while NEOM, a pioneer in sustainable urban development, adds a visionary touch, creating a destination that not only redefines sophistication but also preserves the natural splendour of the Red Sea, one of the last unexplored yachting frontiers.

With pristine waters that are home to some of the world’s best corals, flora, and fauna, Sindalah offers a visual feast for yacht clientele seeking unparalleled beauty and serenity.
Moreover, the landscape of yachting in the Red Sea is undergoing transformative changes. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s efforts to enhance regulations, including the establishment of the seamless platform for crews called ‘Ebhar’, coupled with the opening of new destinations within the Red Sea, are poised to bolster the growth of yacht traffic in the region.

“Sindalah is more than a destination; it’s an invitation to explore the untouched wonders of the Red Sea,” says Paolo Casani, Chief Executive Officer, Camper & Nicholsons. “The synergy between Camper & Nicholsons and NEOM has given rise to a yachting haven that perfectly encapsulates luxury amidst the breathtaking beauty of this unexplored frontier. Sindalah beckons those who seek a sublime yachting experience like never before.”

“We are delighted to partner with Camper & Nicholsons for Sindalah,” says Aayush Killa, Executive Director, NEOM. “This collaboration aligns perfectly with our vision at NEOM, combining luxury with a profound respect for the pristine environment of the Red Sea. Camper & Nicholsons, with their unparalleled expertise in the luxury yachting sector, brings an exceptional understanding of our clientele’s desires. Their commitment to excellence and sustainability resonates deeply with NEOM’s core values, making them the ideal partner to help us realize our aspiration of transforming Sindalah into a world-class yachting destination.”
