Record results for UK TransEurope members

Manager Alison Wakelin and her team from Emsworth Yacht Habour with their trophy for Marina of the Year

TransEurope Marinas members win all of the Coastal awards for Marina of the Year, in addition to Employee of the Year!

TransEurope Marinas members based in the UK and part of the rigourous Gold Anchor Scheme, a marina management certification system, have the opportunity to enter The Yacht Harbour Association’s “Marina of the Year” competition. A total of 160 marinas are accedited via this method around the world.

The process requires berth holders to send in their vote in recognition of those marinas that go the extra mile to offer outstanding quality and service to their berth holders and visitors.

The winners this year were as follows:

Towergate’s Coastal Marina of the Year 2022 – Under 250 Berths
Winner: Emsworth Yacht Harbour
Runner-up: Poole Quay Boat Haven

Towergate’s Coastal Marina of the Year 2022 – Over 250 Berths
Winner: Royal Quays Marina – Boatfolk
Runner-up:  Troon Yacht Haven

Towergate’s Marina Employee of the Year 2022
Winner- John Selman – Beaulieu Marina

For Emsworth Yacht Harbour, a charming family-run marina in Chichester Harbour, this makes two consecutive years in the top slot; a convincing recommendation for boaters seeking a service-led base.

Manager Alison Wakelin commented on the result:

We are delighted to receive the Towergate Coastal Marina of the Year award for under 250 berths, for the second consecutive year. It is a real boost to the hard working team here at Emsworth Yacht Harbour to know that their efforts are recognised by our customers. Our thanks to everyone who is part of our wonderful community here in Emsworth and to those who took the time to vote for us, we really do appreciate it.

On behalf of TransEurope Marinas, we sincerely congratulate all of the winners.
