New Gibraltar Marina Receives 5 Anchor Award

by Jason Gorringe,, London

24 August 2012

Alcaidesa Marina, based in Spain but just ten minutes walk from Gibraltar Airport, has become the first Spanish marina to be awarded the five gold anchors accolade from the Yacht Harbour Association in recognition of the facilities it offers to its yachting clientele.

The marina, opened in 2010, is located in the natural Bay of Gibraltar and offers 325 deep water berths able to cater for vessels up to 80 meters length. It features many modern facilities including a 75-tonne boat hoist, comprehensive boatyard services, fuel sales, and security. With the famous Rock of Gibraltar overlooking the marina, the area has a rich history and is a popular tourist destination. Due to its proximity to Gibraltar airport, and its close links to western Europe and the Mediterranean, the facility has attracted interest as a home port for many wealthy yacht owners.

Mieke Vleugels who assessed the marina on behalf of TYHA, said: “This marina is an efficiently and well-run, full-service marina and is extremely customer focussed. Alcaidesa Marina is preparing for its future and ready to offer a further 300 berths, with further enhancements to be carried out in the near future. This marina's location is truly worthy of their statement of being at "The Gateway to the Mediterranean".

Tony Valbuena, the Marina Manager says of this award: "We take great pride in being awarded with the 5 Gold Anchors as we believe it’s a reflection of our staff’s commitment to deliver the highest level of customer service, security and privacy along with our continuing investment programme."

"The opening of the boatyard at the beginning of the year demonstrates our commitment to enhancing the services. We have an exciting programme of events over the summer and we look forward to welcoming new and old customers during the summer months and we will be pleased to show them our new 5 Gold Anchor award! There are a number of other well known and popular marinas along this beautiful and popular coastline yet we are the first to be recognised in this way for which we are very pleased."
