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

We have been at the marina for 2-3 years now and it is an experience to be moored there. The on wharf staff are absolutely fabulous and whenever there is any sort of incident, ie bad weather, you know that they will attend to your boat without you having to race down there. They will also help you get out of the marina or moor up in bad weather or a high tide running, which is a great help to amateur mariners. The added bonuses are of course the wonderful bathroom facilities, access to two great restaurants, the early morning coffees and the sunset cocktails. All in all, a great experience.
