There has been much activity over the summer months at the Fujairah International Marine Club (FIMC) to create new facilities for the upcoming season of marine sports.
One of the new features is the creation of an observation deck that gives a spectacular view over the Fujairah Harbour.
Major Ahmed Ebraheim Alblooshi, the Managing Director of the FIMC, said that when the first floor of his ship-shaped building was being renovated to accommodate a new Chinese restaurant it was decided to create an observation deck.
This high, large area will be a perfect viewing place, especially for VIPs to watch boat races on competition days. They will now have an outside viewing position as well as an inside area equipped with television sports channels.
When there is no racing the area will be used by the Chinese restaurant as an outside terrace for eating, drinking and shisha.
A staircase has been built to give external access to the observation deck without needing to enter through the building.
Major Ahmed said, “The substantial overhang will also be good for the Harbour Club Restaurant below by giving diners shelter from the sun. This could easily be glassed in and fitted with air conditioning to make it a comfortable all year round coffee spot with a fantastic marine view.”
