P&O Marinas is DP World’s collection of world-class luxury marinas and picturesque harbours, leading the way in establishing Dubai as the capital of boating and yachting destinations in the Middle East. Its beautifully crafted marina portfolio caters to a variety of vessel types including sailing yachts, motor yachts, cruise ships and several of the world’s most extravagant superyachts. 

Bringing together the national and international elite who share a passion for luxury yachts and the accompanying lifestyle, P&O Marinas was launched with the global hub Mina Rashid Marina. The company has since extended their management and operations to further marinas in Dubai, all with open sea access located along the azure coast of Jumeirah. 

Mina Rashid Marina is the busiest Marina in the Middle East and can accommodate the highest number of superyachts. 

As COO of P&O Marinas, DP World’s company, Hamza Mustafa is responsible for overseeing all strategic initiatives, partnerships, and international expansion plans, as well as creating, implementing, and driving forward the company’s vision and mission. The occupancy of all marinas under his management have reached up to 90% 

He is also overseeing and managing the middle east leading Cruise Terminals in Mina Rashid both of which have been winning multiple global awards. Since Hamza has joined, the Cruise Terminals have managed to welcome over 1 Million passengers from various countries. All major Cruise Lines are calling in Mina Rashid. 

The Cruise Terminals of Mina Rashid have hosted in November 2022 the first and biggest Sailing Event in the UAE and region, the Dubai Grand Sail Prix by SailGP. The event has attracted over 20 Superyachts from all around the world and over 2000 spectators. 

Prior to joining P&O Marinas, he has served as CEO of PCFC Investments, a wholly owned subsidiary of PCFC (Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation), a Government of Dubai organisation. Where, he oversaw the investments and management of assets spanning real estate, hospitality, and retail, including the successful turnaround and
