Chapman believes Nansha Marina can be justifiably proud to have retained its five Gold Anchor rating. 

“Nansha Marina is the highest level five Gold Anchor marina due to its excellent infrastructure, facilities and services,” says Chapman. “The owners and staff have obviously worked hard to ensure the experience for marina users is first rate. The land side infrastructure is of a very high standard and the docks are well maintained and serviced to the satisfaction of the boat users.” 

Nansha Marina includes 136 floating berths, a hardstand serviced by a 75 tonne travel lift and high-class dining and lounge facilities.

“It was an honour for Nansha Marina to have once again re-validated for the five Gold Anchor Award,” says Fok. “We are always committed in providing excellent services and facilities for our members and the boating community at large.”

Chapman explained that the independent audit of the marina highlighted its strength across the 10 audit assessment areas including marina design, construction, land facilities and services.

The MIA delivers Gold Anchor accreditation exclusively across the Asian region. The Gold Anchor Rating Scheme has been devised to encourage the development of service standards at marinas and to promote the benefits of Gold Anchor rated marinas to the boating public.
