WORLD NEWS First 5 Anchor win for Malaysian marina MALAYSIA: Sutera Harbour Resort in Borneo has been accredited as a 5 Gold Anchor marina under the Global Gold Anchor Scheme. The resort includes a 104 berth marina, 27 hole championship golf course, a country club and two 5 star hotels. The Global Gold Anchor accreditation scheme includes site and desk top assessments plus phone interviews with berth holders in the marina. The evaluation criteria covers 87 specific items across the areas of lay-out and design, administration and management, customer service, environment and on-water and on-land facilities and infrastructure. Marina Industries Association (MIA) chairman and president, Andrew Chapman, said Sutera Harbour Resort was setting the benchmark in Malaysia for marina standards. “I note the assessor’s comments about the strong commitment to maintenance and customer service and I applaud management for the specific focus on these very important aspects of the business.” Sutera Harbour Resort opened in 1998 and is located in Kota Kinabalu in Sabah. The marina can accommodate superyachts of up to 90m (295ft) in length and is home to an extensive fleet of tourism day trip vessels catering for the international tourism market. It is also popular with local boaters and western registered boat owners sailing through SE Asia. General manager, Rick Blackie, said the marina was extremely proud to have achieved this internationally recognised accolade. “We are currently the only 5 Gold Anchor rated marina in Malaysia and the first in Borneo. Our continued aim is to provide a secure, safe, fully functioning and fun location for all boaters. I would like to thank the team here for their tireless work maintaining the structure of the marina and their unending helpfulness and ready smiles. Also, thanks to MIA for their guidance and advice throughout the accreditation process,” he commented. Jebel Ali invests in all-new marina package UAE: Jebel Ali Resort in Dubai has contracted UK-based Walcon Marine to supply a complete package of marina walkways, finger pontoons and an access bridge to replace its 35-year-old facility. The new marina comprises a main 119m (390ft) long walkway from which three piers of 50-62m (164-203ft) extend. Thirty finger pontoons of varying specifications provide berths for 60 boats up to 15m (49ft). Larger yachts can berth at three longer pontoons and against a 46m (151ft) stretch of open walkway. Walcon’s aluminium System 2000 pontoons will be used throughout to provide excellent resistance to the high levels of corrosion that can occur in a tropical climate with high levels of salinity. The pontoons will be manufactured by long-standing Walcon partner DBB Contracting, which will also undertake removal of the old pontoons and the piling. A team from Walcon will complete the installation, with assistance from DBB. Work is expected to begin in the early summer. Walcon has a long history of working in the Middle East and has worked on previous projects with the Jebel Ali Resort. In 2011 it designed and built a floating facility to host a fuel dock and a special berth to accommodate a floating restaurant (below), together with all the necessary utilities and facilities. www.marinaworld.com - May/June 2018 7
