Industry & Award-winning shipyard & marina The Boat Works has been awarded 5 Gold Anchor accreditation in conjunction with the Superyacht Ready certification.
Formalises what visiting owners and superyacht Captains already know – The Boat Works is the region’s premier facility for vessels of all sizes, makes and models, offering a comprehensive choice of skilled marine professionals teamed with superior marine infrastructure and facilities, defining The Boat Works as the destination for vessel and superyacht activity.
“5 Gold Anchors is among the highest accolades that the industry awards and is reserved for marinas which offer their customers consistently high standards of service and facilities,” said Suzanne Davies, CEO at Marina Industries Association (MIA).
“The Boat Works is an impressive facility and is a worthy recipient of 5 Gold Anchors.”
The Global Gold Anchor is an international accreditation which requires a rigorous assessment of a marina’s services, procedures and facilities.
It involves an independent audit of 86 criteria across all areas of the business plus a customer survey. The accreditation aims to inform consumers as to the level of services and facilities at marinas and to provide marinas with a set of benchmarks to maintain and a pathway for continual improvement.
The Boat Works is a family-owned business run by a team of passionate boaties, all committed to the highest customer service ethics and proud of The Boat Works’ reputation for being the cleanest and most professional facility in the country – a reputation endorsed by their loyal cruising, superyacht and commercial clients.
On receiving the 5 Gold Anchor award Shane Subichin, The Boat Works General Manager said, “A wonderful achievement for our facility, marine trade partners and crew across the two yards.
“The collaborative commitment to provide the highest level of service within a clean and green facility is our priority. We congratulate our team as this success is only possible from their commitment and dedication.”
“We continue to raise the bar to expand to accommodate demand,” explained The Boat Works’ owner, Tony Longhurst.
“By the end of 2023, the North Superyacht Yard will have doubled in size with the new office complex, hardstand and sheds, and we have invested in a new 90-tonne machine which gives us additional capability for faster, more efficient haul out and storage.”
