Harborage Yacht Club and Marina wins IMBC honor

Harborage Yacht Club and Marina of Stuart, Fla. received the National Marina Day Marina of the Year award.

The award was announced at this week's International Marina and Boatyard Conference in Fort Lauderdale. National Marina Day is managed by the Association of Marina Industries.

In celebration of National Marina Day, Harborage Yacht Club and Marina held an all-day event that included tours of the facility, an in-water boat show, and dozens of land displays by area boatbuilders, yacht brokers and other marine-related organizations and businesses. The marina also encouraged its county commissioners and the City of Stuart to issue a proclamation declaring the day National Marina Day in MartinCounty.

"The deciding factor on choosing Harborage was their effective use of the media to remind everyone of the importance of marinas and boating to the area's economy and to their recreation. In every press release and interview given, the Harborage staff made sure the value of marine industries was in the forefront," said Michael Shanley, chairman of the National Marina Day committee, in a statement.

In addition to receiving a plaque and recognition for its efforts, the marina will also be the site of the opening event Aug. 8 for National Marina Day 2009.
