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

No matter how far we venture or sail on “Eliza” our Halvorsen 42 Coastal Cruiser, it is always good to get back to our Berth at Soldiers Point Marina, where the facilities are second to none and, it is truly a home-away-from-home. We have a choice of two top Restaurants who are always welcoming, the Marina Centre is always on-hand to help with any problems with a hull or engine room and, we now have our very own grocery Boat Shed. The way in which the Marina telephone is answered; “How can I help you?” simply sums up the attitude of ALL THE STAFF. Is it any wonder then, that our Marina now proudly fly’s the Flag with 5 Golden Anchors. Congratulations on your well deserved award, well done and many thanks for providing an International Standard Marina right here in Port Stephens, our little piece of Paradise just got even better!
