To Fulfill a Dream on Water
The Tel Aviv Marina is Israel's first marina and one of Atarim’s most known and significant projects. Since its establishment in the early 70s of the 20th century, the marina has been a home to sailing enthusiasts in Israel, giving the signal for the establishment of other marinas in waterfront cities in Israel such as Haifa, Ako, Ashdod, Ashkelon and Eilat.Turning Sailing Dreams to Reality
The Tel Aviv Marina was established to enable the many sailing enthusiasts in Israel to fulfill a dream - a safe place to dock their vessels and allow them to go to sea on a regular basis like any other sailing enthusiast in the world. The marina grew out of the Tel Aviv Sailing Club, which expanded until the need for a broader infrastructure that will serve boats and yachts arose. The Marina that Grew with Tel Aviv
The story of the establishment and expansion of the marina is the story of the growth of sailing in Tel Aviv and Israel as a whole since the 70s of the 20th century to our days.
After the initial construction of the docks, power and water infrastructure were gradually added turning the marina to a preferred home for boat and yacht owners. In 2010 it was decided to rebuild the marina and befit it to the needs of the sailing enthusiasts in Israel of the 21st century. Highly advanced floating docks were installed, as well as new and cost-effective electrical systems. The seawall was renovated to cope with high waves during storms, and a promenade that became a popular destination among visitors and tourists was formed. The marina prides itself in a high level of accessibility for the disabled with special parking and toilets, as well as a sailing club adjusted for the disabled.
‘Atarim’ continues to develop the marina with the goal of turning it into the Israeli maritime center in the fields of sailing, culture, recreation and leisure.The Tel Aviv Marina website
