Gladstone Ports Corporations (GPC) Marina has retained its four Gold Anchor status, joining over 250 marinas across the world with global accreditation.

Being in the top 80 per cent, GPC’s Marina was credited with excellent facilities, great staff attitude and pristine parklands to enjoy while visiting. 

Marina Industries Association Chief Executive Officer, Colin Bransgrove said the Gold Anchor assessment of Gladstone Marina highlighted its functionality and appeal as a user-friendly marina.

“Customer service is a key focus of the Global Gold Anchor program,” Mr Bransgrove said. 

“The survey of berth holders for example indicated a high level of satisfaction with the marina staff and the cleanliness of the marina amenities.
