On the final day of the ICOMIA World Marina Conference in Athens, Flisvos Marina was awarded 5 Gold Anchor Platinum accreditation, the highest level of the scheme and distinguishes the marina as one of the best in the world. Flisvos Marina is the second superyacht marina in Europe to receive the 5 Gold Anchor Platinum accreditation, and simultaneously the first marina in the Southeastern Mediterranean.
The accreditation recognizes the small number of marinas in the world the cater for the most discerning customers who expect the highest levels of facilities, infrastructure and customer service.
The special award ceremony took place on Saturday, October 27, 2018 on the classic boat “Neraida” which featured in Sophia Loren’s English language debut in the 1957 film ‘Boy on a Dolphin’; now fully restored to its former glory the boat is a floating Museum.
LAMDA Flisvos Marina A.E. Managing Director, Stavros Katsikadis said: "This accreditation is of great importance to us, as it recognizes the continuous effort of our marina to demonstrate the high quality of yachting services in Greece. Through this, it is now proven that Flisvos Marina is one of the most distinguished marinas in the world, a perfect example of operation for customers and visitors too. Being the second marina in Europe to have won this accreditation is a testament to our commitment to efforts that aim the continuous improvement of our facilities, services and benefits".
Mr. Katsikadis continued: “I would like to thank the marina’s team who worked hard to reach the level of 5 Gold Anchor Platinum accreditation”.
The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) General Manager, Jon White, commented: “I am very pleased to confirm the Global Marina Accreditation award of “5 Gold Anchor Platinum” to Flisvos Marina. And I would like to congratulate Stavros Katsikadis and his marina team for this significant achievement. To achieve this level of accreditation Flisvos Marina was required to achieve an almost perfect score in each of the 89 separate Gold Anchor criteria covering all areas of the marina operations with a particular focus on customer service. Since 2014, significant improvements have been made at the marina and following the assessment in June 2017, the Flisvos team worked hard on some final key actions required to succeed in achieving this demanding standard”.
