Soldiers Point Marina takes home two Major Awards at Marina Trade Show on the Gold Coast...

  • Australian Marina Employee of the Year
  • Most Innovative Marketing by a Marina

Of all the thousands of marina staff in Australia, Soldiers Point Marina Supervisor Jim Duncan of Soldiers Point has been officially recognised at the marine15 conference on the Gold Coast tonight for his outstanding contribution to the marina industry by being announced People’s Choice Australian Marina Employee 2015-2016.

Jim has been employed at Soldiers Point Marina since 2000 and manages the day to day operation of the Marina. As a consequence, Jim is a hive of information, knowing every customer by name and every nook and cranny of the marina and its environs.  Jim’s duties are many but include ensuring boats are safe and secure, berths are rented, records to each berth are up-to-date and accurate and that all relevant Marina Rules and Regulations are observed. 

The marina also collected the Most Innovative Marketing Award 2015-2016 for its absolute commitment to meeting and exceeding customer expectations.

Congratulations also to Paul and Julie Simpson from The Point Restaurant who were named as finalists in Australian Marina Restaurant of the Year 2015-2016.

“This has been a very rewarding night for Soldiers Point Marina and in particular Jim Duncan. He is an outstanding employee and a very worthy winner of this inaugural award. Jim always has the welfare of our customers and their boats as his first priority” said Soldiers Point General Manager Darrell Barnett CMM.

Testimonial

A Marina for boaties that's an 'experience' not just a destination.

Soldiers Point Marina, Port Stephens was a destination much talked about and recommended by other sailing friends. It surpassed expectations. The berths are suited to the prevailing winds and generous in size so docking doesn't even require the assistance you'll get. Jetties are decorated with hanging flower baskets and interesting sculptures and are in themselves a tourist attraction. Once here, there is no need to leave although if you need to re-provision or sight-see you can do it in the courtesy cars - one is a Lexus. Coffee and papers are delivered in the morning and cocktails in the afternoon. There is a lot of theatre surrounding the delivery too.We happened to be there for Valentines Day so a rose was delivered to all the ladies. 

The bathroom suites gleam and are floor to ceiling marble, rivalling anything you'd find at the Sheraton. There is no detail that the owner hasn't thought of to make your stay the most relaxing and enjoyable possible. You'll find all the usual Marina facilities plus extras and it's all top notch. 3 types of award winning dining are available in the complex too, from waters edge coffee lounge through to a la carte. Light meals can even be delivered to your boat.

And if all of this doesn't persuade you that it's worth a visit in a beautiful physical location, their best asset is the staff who couldn't do more to help you have a fabulous, fabulous time. 

We stayed a week.
Still grinning!
