Al Jazeera Port

Conveniently located to the south of the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah just 5 kms from the end of the E311 inter-emirate highway and in very close proximity to the Free Zones of RAKIA / RAKFTZ / Technopark, Al Jazeera Port and Shipyard offers  a comprehensive range of services and facilities to a wide cross section of the marine community.

The complex houses a Shipyard Area served by a synchro-lift and dry docking facility, numerous wet berths as well as warehouses, covered workshop space, open yard space, and offices. The Shipyard has it’s own Repair Division but a flexible and business friendly approach means owners, operators and repairers can rent their own berth and carry out the works under their own banner.

The Shipyard has a loyal core of resident operators, repairers and builders of all types of commercial vessels and craft and is attracting growing interest from the leisure sector for repair and newbuild facilities.

Also contained within the site is an ISPS controlled  Port Area which is well connected by road and sea to handle a wide variety of bulk, general and project cargoes and is very well served by a highly competent and proficient Stevedoring Division

All callers to the Shipyard or the Port can avail of Al Hamra Ships Agency which offers the full range of cargo and vessel clearance procedures through Customs, Immigration and Coastguard.

And, in keeping with the flexible business approach all other registered agencies can take a license to handle their clients calling here.
