Yas Marina receives 5 Gold Anchor Platinum accreditation

ABU DHABI, September 22, 2021

Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi’s lifestyle destination to dock, dine, and discover, has been awarded the 5 Gold Anchor Platinum accreditation by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA), the industry’s oldest marina association. 
The award positions Yas Marina as the first marina in the UAE and GCC to be awarded with the industry’s highest accolade with TYHA having only awarded five other marinas the distinguished accreditation.  
General Manager Billy Canellas said: “The reward is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team at Yas Marina to deliver the highest standard of service to its members and visitors, as well as the state-of-the-art facilities we provide."  
TYHA General Manager Jon White said: “The 5 Gold Anchor Platinum standard was originally designed to recognise a small number of luxury marinas in the world that deliver the ultimate marina experience to a very discerning customer base. 
"Following significant investment and work in recent years, Yas Marina definitely deserves this recognition and accolade. I wish Yas Marina and the team every success in the future and look forward to the opportunity to visit soon to congratulate everyone and celebrate their accreditation with them.”  
The Gold Anchor Award scheme has been recognised as a leading worldwide marina accreditation programme for over 25 years. It follows a rigorous auditing process including onsite assessments, compliance with local and regional regulations, member satisfaction surveys, concierge services, premium facilities and much more.  To retain the award, audits are conducted every three years to ensure the highest standards are maintained. 
Gold Anchor Assessor Tony Dye said: “It has been a pleasure to work with the team at Yas Marina since 2017 when they achieved 5 Gold Anchors at their first assessment and is testament to how the structure of the marina was set up initially. 
"It has been the aim of the management to be the first marina in the UAE to achieve 5 Gold Anchor Platinum and demonstrate to their customers the will to become the best marina in the UAE not only for facilities but customer service also.”-TradeArabia News Service
