Displaying items by tag: Top Five UK marinas
#Top5UK - Milford Marina, south Wales was among the top five marinas in the UK announced at the Southampton Boat Show having been voted by magazine readers of the 'Sailing Today' Awards.
The 328 berth marina at Milford, Pembrokeshire, was shortlisted in the UK Marina/Harbour category, along with Hamble Point, St Helier Harbour, Titchmarsh Marina and Cowes Yacht Haven claiming the title.
The judges recognised Milford Marina for its multi-million pound investment in new lock gates which has created more frequent access times for visitors and berth holders, as well as its accolade as the only four Gold Anchor facility in west Wales.
The marina is owned and operated by Milford Haven Port Authority (see new pilot cutters) and is at the heart of the £70 million Milford Waterfront Development. This will see the area transformed into a vibrant waterside destination focused on retail, leisure, residential and fishing.
Berth holders at Milford Marina already enjoy a range of first class facilities including an exclusive Gold Card and the opportunity to join Europe’s largest cruising network, the Passeport Escales programme.
Neil Jenkins, the Port’s Destination Director, said “It was an honour to be shortlisted for this award, among such good company".
Milford Marina celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and with the developments planned to enhance the area, we are sure that we’ll be nominated again in the future. Congratulations to the winners of all of the categories.”
