IGY Marinas said its Blue Haven Marina in the Turks and Caicos Islands was recognized as a 5-Gold Anchor facility by the Yacht Harbour Association.

The accreditation is presented every three years. Blue Haven Marina also earned the distinction in 2014.

“We could not be more excited to have maintained our 5-Gold Anchor status, as it is a true testament of the hard work and dedication to customer service that our team upholds at Blue Haven Marina,” Blue Haven Marina general manager Adam Foster said in a statement. “We are humbled to have earned this distinction for the second time and look forward to exceeding the expectations of our discerning global clientele.”

For more than 25 years, the 5-Gold Anchor award program has been auditing marinas worldwide and is recognized as a credible source for determining marina quality. Facilities are rated through a series of tests every three years in the following categories: the marina audit; mystery shops; and berth holders’ questionnaires.

All Gold Anchor candidates must meet industry standards. IGY Marinas said the highest ratings mean that the marina houses luxury facilities and upholds its customer service as a top priority.

Surrounded by the third-largest barrier reef in the world, Blue Haven Marina has 100 slips with 45 megayacht berths accommodating vessels longer than 200 feet and all of the requisite electrical requirements. The marina sits adjacent to Blue Haven Resort, which boasts full amenities.
