UAE celebrates 50th birthday with yacht parade

Yacht owners in the UAE have celebrated the UAE’s 50th birthday in the only way they know – with a stunning yacht parade across Dubai.

And yes, that is the most brilliantly Dubai thing we’ve seen for a while.

The two-hour luxury yacht parade featured more than 20 superyachts. And it also included more than 50 UAE flags being hoisted to celebrate the UAE’s golden jubilee. And, impressively, a 50m long UAE flag was hoisted close to Ain Dubai.

“The entire fleet will assemble in a circular formation at the time of the flag hoisting ceremony. Spectators will be able to witness the flag hoisting ceremony and other water sports activities from the coast and the yachts they are on,” said Captain Ali who helped organise the yacht parade.

The yacht parade took in the Dubai Marina and the UAE’s big landmark spots including The Atlantis.

This is the second time the yacht parade has been done in Dubai to celebrate UAE National Day. But this is the biggest yacht party yet, and a fitting way for the UAE to celebrate hitting the big FIVE-OH!

Happy 50th UAE National Day from the DubaiLAD team!
