Global recognition for Wyndham Harbour Marina

Wyndham Harbour Marina (Vic) has received elevated Gold Anchor ratings from the Marina Industries Association (MIA) in recognition of recent facility and service investments.

Wyndham Harbour Marina was presented with a 5 Gold Anchor rating by MIA President Andrew Chapman, Vice President John Spragg and Director Stefan Borzecki. In presenting the award Mr Chapman commented, “The MIA applauds the investment of Wyndham Harbour in this wonderful community asset which is a great outcome for the local community and the boating public. The MIA is proud to present 5 Gold Anchors to Wyndham Harbour Marina as it signals to the boating community the Club’s commitment to the facilities and levels of service that the Marina offers its customers.”

On hand to accept the award was Marina General Manager Allan Cayzer, who said, “I am very proud to accept this award on behalf of Wyndham Harbour Marina. It is wonderful recognition of our achievements and great to know that our future investments will continue to be recognised in this way.

Wyndham Harbour Marina also increased its rating, being awarded 5 Gold Anchors. First opened in 2016, Wyndham Harbour Marina has been increasing the services and facilities on offer at the marina. A fuel dock opened in 2017 offering quality ULP and diesel fuels 24/7 through self-serve, pay at the dock bowers.

Earlier this year the marina took delivery of a hydraulic Roodberg trailer. Catering for vessels up to 35 feet and 10 tonnes, it is the perfect tool to pull vessels out of the water for maintenance or upland storage.

Allan Cayzer explained the future plans to create a vibrant boating hub at Wyndham Harbour, “Construction of our dry stack will commence later this year and will be suited to boats up to 30 feet and 10 tonnes. We have very strong demand and expect it will be very popular with the fishing community. We have recently renovated our wood fire pizza restaurant and added a Mexican food restaurant and Fish & Chip outlet. These restaurants offer expansive views out to Port Phillip Bay and beyond to the city of Melbourne skyline.”

Wyndham Harbour is attracting world class events and last month played host to Round 1 of the 2021 Offshore Superboat Australian Championships which attracted a large fleet of impressive boats competing over the weekend. And for the locals, the marina holds its annual ‘Hooked on Wyndham’ Fishing Competition which rewards the largest catch in several categories and includes a division for the under 13s.

Following the 5 Gold Anchor presentation, John Spragg, VP MIA and VP Bellingham Marine commented, “It is great to see marinas use the Gold Anchor Program to assist them make investment decisions around their facility upgrades. What is happening on this western side of Port Phillip Bay is tremendous for the Victorian Boating community, providing a great destination, a range of options and premium boating facilities”.
