Double success for Quay Marinas at The Yacht Harbour Association 2019 awards

After winning two The Yacht Harbour Association awards the marina teams at Conwy Quays Marina and Royal Quays Marina are celebrating. Sponsored by Towergate Insurance, the renowned international awards are voted for online by marina berth holders. 

Runners up in 2015 and 2018, Royal Quays Marina, North Shields, was this year voted “Marina of Year, Coastal – over 250 berths.”

Accepting the award on behalf of the team Matthew Simms, Marina Manager comments, “All the staff work really hard to provide a marina which we can be proud of, with the service to match. It is great not only to have this effort recognised, but also to be able to put the North East coast on the boating map. We have a fantastic marina, but what really makes it is the people: those who work here, and our loyal berth holders, visitors and other users all of whom combine to create a wonderful marina community. It is really satisfying to know that people enjoy using the marina and want to vote, so our thanks to all who supported us.”

John Mellor from Conwy Quays Marina was voted “Marina Employee of the Year.” Commenting on his award, Jon Roberts, Marina Manager of Conwy Quays Marina says, “This prestigious award is testament to John's work ethic and attitude to go that extra mile. We are very proud of his achievement. Our team’s focus is to help customers have the best boating experience possible and John’s award will no doubt provide further motivation to our staff to help make our marinas great places to visit and go boating. I am sure you will all join me in congratulating John on this thoroughly deserved award.”
