Poole Quay Boat Haven is named the UK Coastal Marina of the Year, under 250 berths.
Poole Quay Boat Haven (PQBH), owned and operated by the Poole Harbour Commissioners (PHC), is celebrating after being named the Towergate UK Coastal Marina of the Year (under 250 berths) by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) at this year’s Southampton Boat Show.
Poole Quay Boat Haven is no newcomer to the award, this is the third time that the team has been honoured with this internationally recognised accolade. The Towergate Marina of the Year awards were established in 2014 to acknowledge the very best of over 160 Gold Anchor accredited marina’s from across the globe.
Kerrie Gray, Poole Quay Boat Haven marina manager, said: “We are delighted that PQBH has won the award for Coastal Marina of the Year (under 250 berths) category. The fact that this triumph is based upon the votes of our berth holders and visitors make this such a special achievement. We are so proud to have been recognised for the service we provide and would like to thank our loyal customers for their continued support."
Offering up to 125 berths for everything from jet skis to 75m superyachts, Poole Quay Boat Haven is a host to various nautical events as well as being home to 2020 Vendée Globe entrant Pip Hare and the award-winning Poole Harbour Boat Show.
