After a challenging year for many in the tourism industry in Australia, Coral Sea Marina are delighted to have been announced as Runner-Up in the ACREW Superyacht Business Awards 2020, in the category of Best Australasian Marina.
The Superyacht Business Awards is a global awards programme where captains and crew select the best businesses working in the superyacht sector. ACREW believe the most efficient and reliable way to discover the best businesses in superyachting, is to ask their consumers – the captains and crew.
The Best Superyacht Marina Award recognises selected marinas for providing the best standard of services and facilities to visiting yachts. Through the voting process marinas are celebrated for their willingness to assist Superyacht guests; ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Whether a home port or a destination marina, the recipients of these awards are loved and appreciated by crew.
Coral Sea Marina Resort is located at the heart of the Whitsundays on Australia’s Queensland coast offering wet berthing and superyacht facilities for vessels up to 80m/ 5m LAT. Offering unprecedented access to the cruising grounds of the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef, Coral Sea Marina has invested heavily in superyacht infrastructure over recent years to secure their position as marina of choice for yachts visiting the Whitsunday region.
Joscelyn O’Keefe, Marketing Manager at Coral Sea Marina explains “Coral Sea Marina is the only 5 Gold Anchor Platinum Marina in Queensland and we aim to always deliver memorable experiences that reflect quality and value. This is our first year entering the ACREW Superyacht Business Awards and we are delighted with the recognition as Runner-Up. A special mention should go to our industry partners Gold Coast City Marina & Shipyard as winners in this category.”
