Royal Phuket Marina Earns Prestigious Five Gold Anchor Award (04 Aug 2005)
Already an award-winner - months prior to completion
(Phuket, Thailand. August 4, 2005) -- Asia's newest and most sophisticated, high-tech yachting haven, Royal Phuket Marina has become an award-winner four months prior to its completion date (December 2005).
The state-of-art marina has just been awarded the prestigious "Five Gold Anchor" by the Yacht Harbour Association, an arm of the British Marine Federation.
Five Gold Anchors is the highest of three honours a marina can earn in The Gold Anchor Award Scheme, which was established to improve the standard of facilities for boat owners worldwide and indicates the level of available facilities.
Royal Phuket Marina is one of only two marinas in Asia to rank in the top category.
Double the size of any other yachting haven in Phuket, Royal Phuket Marina is part of a new US$150 million "luxury lifestyle marina community" on the paradise island's eastern seaboard in Phang Nga Bay.
With 350 berths and 400 luxury villas, penthouses and condominiums, it is also the island's only marina with a boat lock, non-tidal deepwater basin and private moorings on the doorstep of residences.
The marina can accommodate vessels of up to 35 metres and has just started welcoming its first yachts following the Thai government's decision to abolish import duty on boats.
"As a result, owning a yacht or boat is a far more realistic proposition in Thailand, where the marine industry is still in its infancy," said Andy Stephens, Marina Manager.
The marina is being built in two phases. Phase 1, the 31,000 sq metre outer marina, comprises 85 wet berths, 120 dry berths, complete with a 60-tonne travel hoist and hardstand for maintenance, for both public moorings; private berths for homeowners; and a select group of commercial operators. The marina is protected from both wind and waves, with 24-hour surveillance.
Phase 2, the inner marina, is for exclusive use of private marina residents, with a sophisticated lock system for access.
Phuket is home to the region's most prestigious annual regatta, The King's Cup, held annually in early December and which Royal Phuket Marina is a main sponsor.
The official opening is scheduled for December 2005. The entire project is due for completion in 2007. A 5-star boutique hotel is also included in longer-term plans.
