The small but modern Waterford city marina is located on the quays of Waterford on the river Suir joins Castlepark marina in Kinsale that earned four gold anchors in February and Royal Cork marina in Cork harbour that took the maximum five Gold Anchors from the YHA in the same month.
Waterford City Marina marina has over 100 berths with all relevant features and is fully owned and operated by the City Council, managed by superintendent Johnny Codd.
The city of Waterford has much to offer as visitors can view the surviving Viking city walls, various museums, shopping streets, a park, sports centre, golf course and much more. Lovers of history and arts will especially be thrilled by Waterford's sights.
The Gold Anchor scheme is a voluntary assessment programme which is focussed on customer service and providing quality berths for the boat owner. Ratings range from one to five Gold Anchors and provide assurance of quality and credibility of the marina. Qualifying technical criteria is based on TYHA's Code of Practice for the Construction and Operation of Marina and Yacht Harbours.
