D Marin Mandalina Marina retains its 5 Gold Anchor Rating 17-06-2014
Set in the City of Šibenik on the beautiful Dalmatian coast of Croatia is D-Marin Mandalina. Šibenik Bay is the most protected, natural harbour on the Adriatic Sea and located between cities of Split and Zadar.

The marina has 429 berths and 50 dry dockage and has a wide range of amenities for yacht owners, their guests and crew members. D Marin Mandalina is designed for yachts from 10 meter to 140 meters LOA and especially specialized in service to super yachts with special sub and superstructure for this purpose.

The marina offers its guests a comfortable, quiet and intimate atmosphere and upon entering the reception area, the staff provide a highly professional image.

The recently constructed hotel, yacht club, spa, fitness and shopping arcade will be operational as of April 2015 and will offer more to yacht owners and crew.

Artun Ertem CMM, the Regional Director / Marina manager, says of this achievement “ As being one of the 10 marinas of D Marin Marinas Group in the Mediterranean, we have become the first member of TYHA and first marina in Croatia awarded with 5 Gold Anchors. Our aim is to introduce this precious award to other marinas in the Adriatic coast of Croatia and increase awareness for the significance of international standards. I would like to state my kind and sincere thanks to all Mandalina Team for this successful result. We are very glad for retaining this award for another 3 years.”

TYHA’s assessor, Emanuele Rinaldi CMM, says “This marina is in outsanding condition, with excellent facilities and services and, not least of all, it’s location. I therefore feel that the marina deserves to keep its five Gold Anchor rating for another three years.”

The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) provides support for marinas and related business throughout the UK and internationally.

The Gold Anchor Award Scheme, which has been operating for 26 years is based on the TYHA Code of Practice for the design construction and operation of marinas. Ratings range from one to five gold anchors. Any award issued is a sure sign of a credible, quality marina with the number of anchors demonstrating the facilities and standard of service available to berth holders and full compliance with statutory regulations.

The Gold Anchor scheme was awarded Green Initiative of the year 2011 by Practical Boat Owner magazine.
