Coral Sea Marina Goes Platinum

Coral Sea Marina Resort has started 2023 on a high by once again being awarded the 5 Gold Anchor Platinum accreditation.  

The Platinum level accreditation is the highest possible accolade under the Marina Industries Association’s (MIA) Global Gold Anchor Scheme and is reserved for marinas that provide exceptional guest experiences, high-quality facilities and outstanding service.

“Coral Sea Marina Resort again sets the bar for Gold Anchor marina standards, with service and facilities that continue to exceed the expectations of its tenants and guests,” said Marina Industries Association CEO Suzanne Davies.

“What’s so impressive is that the marina team continue to look at ways to better their facilities, whether it be the service they provide, the facilities or their environmental and community initiatives.”

This spectacular start to the new year comes off the back of a hugely successful 2022 when Coral Sea Marina won the prestigious ACREW Superyacht Business Award for World’s Best Superyacht Marina 2022.

After record-breaking marina occupancy levels during the winter cruising season, the year finished with a bang with Coral Sea Marina also becoming one of the first marinas in Australia to accredit under the Marina Industries Association’s newly launched Superyacht Ready Scheme.

“Superyacht visitation to the Whitsundays has grown exponentially over the last three years and our Superyacht services and facilities have likewise been enhanced to meet that demand,” said Coral Sea Marina CEO Kate Purdie.

“The addition of our new MIA Superyacht Ready accreditation gives captains and owners that extra vote of confidence that they have chosen the premier Superyacht marina in the region to accommodate their needs.”

Bookings for 2023 are stronger than ever and the marina is ready to showcase why the Whitsundays is the destination of choice for boating enthusiasts on Australia’s east coast.
