Sanctuary Cove Marina on Queensland’s Gold Coast has been awarded Platinum Gold Anchor
accreditation by the Marina Industries Association (MIA). This Global accreditation is the highest
accolade that the industry awards and is reserved for marinas which offer their customers a
comprehensive unique marina experience by providing tailored personalised service and an outstanding
array of high-quality facilities and amenities.

Sanctuary Cove Marina is a 303-berth marina at Sanctuary Cove, a premier lifestyle destination on the
northern Gold Coast that has recently undergone a $10 million redevelopment. The precinct offers
recreational vessel berth holders premium marina facilities, access to the five-star InterContinental
Resort, Golf and Country Club memberships and a vibrant dining and shopping hub.
The award was presented to Sanctuary Cove Marina General Manager Steve Sammes and parent
company Mulpha CEO, Greg Shaw by MIA Director John Hogan and CEO Suzanne Davies.

Suzanne Davies commented, “Sanctuary Cove Marina has been a 5 Gold Anchor Marina for many years,
but the recent marina expansion and the integrated services offered through the hotel, resort and
country club make it a worthy Platinum recipient and we are very proud to make the award”.
In explaining the detail of the program, John Hogan said “The Global Gold Anchor rating system is
designed to provide boat owners and marina users with an easy reference system like hotel star ratings.
Marinas are independently assessed against over 100 separate criteria which cover management
processes, the condition and maintenance of the marina, environmental practices and the ancillary
facilities and services. The assessment also involves an anonymous customer survey to further ensure it
delivers on its promises.”

Mulpha CEO, Greg Shaw said, “This is a tremendous achievement for the marina team’s commitment to
provide an unparalleled level of marine experience. Sanctuary Cove has been recognised as a boating
and lifestyle destination for more than three decades and this award recognises Mulpha’s dedication
and investment in delivering a world-class integrated resort precinct”.

Steve Sammes, General Manager of Sanctuary Cove Marina said, “It’s an absolute thrill to achieve
Platinum recognition and a reflection of the commitment by Mulpha to continue to invest in the marina
and Sanctuary Cove precinct to enable us to offer a truly exceptional marina experience. We are excited
to continue to raise the bar for our visitors to Sanctuary Cove”.
