Docklands’ Melbourne City Marina and Marina YE have both been awarded the highest accreditation at the Marine 17 International Conference and Trade Exhibition.

After being judged on ambience, policies, planning and procedures, customer service, environment and on-water and on-share facilities and infrastructure, the two marinas achieved Five Gold Anchors.

Melbourne City Marina short-term visitor marina has been established by the City of Melbourne to offer visitors berthing for vessels up to 25 metres from $50 a night and vessels up to 70 metres can be docked at the super-yacht facility.

A new portal was launched in August, enabling visitors to book a berth online.

The marina lounge, built with a part of the $3 million investment from the City of Melbourne in 2015, features shower and laundry facilities, Internet, barbecue and outdoor deck.

Councillor Nicolas Frances Gilley, City of Melbourne transport chair, said: “The City of Melbourne has worked hard to make both marinas as friendly, inviting, affordable and accessible as possible and this five gold anchor accreditation reflects years of planning and work.”

“Located in the heart of Docklands, Melbourne City Marina and Marina Yarra’s Edge are crucial to the continued growth of the area and in helping to drive more tourism into the city centre,” Cr Frances Gilley said.
