Ready, willing and able
The Marina Industries Association (MIA) has launched its much-anticipated Superyacht Ready accreditation, designed to help skippers and owners identify marinas that have the capacity and capabilities required to provide safe and adequate berthing for Superyachts.
Superyacht Ready is available to Global Gold Anchor accredited marinas that satisfy the program’s assessment standards. The Superyacht Ready criteria is based around the suitability of the marina’s infrastructure to accommodate superyachts, accessibility for superyachts, security measures and service availability.
Within an hour of making the announcement to members, the MIA had received seven requests for the accreditation documentation.
Suzanne Davies, MIA CEO explains that the two accreditations are designed to work together: “Superyachts berth at marinas for varying reasons and duration. The style, location and facilities required at the marina will vary depending on the reason for berthing and who is on board, owners, charterers or simply the crew.
