For the second year running, Church Minshull Aqueduct Marina has won UK Inland Marina of the Year as awarded by The Yacht Harbour Association at London Boat Show.
The Inland Marina of the Year award is voted for by marina berth holders and the award recognises the best of over 160 Gold Anchor accredited marinas from across the globe.
Robert Parton, Managing Director at Aqueduct Marina says, "We are delighted to have won the Inland Marina of Year award 2018. In an increasingly competitive market where customers have plenty of choice of marinas
and moorings around the inland network, it is particularly rewarding to win as a result of boat owners' votes."
Simon Haigh, Chairman of The Yacht Harbour Association, gave his praise to the Marina: "Many congratulations to Aqueduct in the NMU Marina of the Year Awards 2018. These awards have built huge momentum since they were introduced and really mean something because it is marina customers who are voting for their marinas, recognising the excellence of facilities provided and the level of service which they receive."
To commemorate the achievement, Aqueduct directors, Robert Parton, Andrea Parton, Jennifer Parton, Stuart Martin and Phil Langley were presented with an etched glass trophy and framed certificate by award sponsor NMU.
