MDL Marinas have announced that Torquay Marina has been awarded the prestigious Five Gold Anchors by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA). The Gold Anchor Awards rate the service, quality and overall standards of a marina’s offering and they are deemed to be the highest award honour in the marine industry.
The marina, situated in the north-east corner of Torbay, is sheltered from the prevailing south-westerly winds, so it’s a safe haven for boats in all weathers. With modern facilities and outstanding blue-water cruising, it’s popular with yachtsmen from home and overseas.
The 440-berth marina is right in the centre of Torquay, giving easy access to shops, restaurants and bars. There are various marine tenants on site providing chandlery, boat brokerage and new boat sales. Torbay itself offers many attractive anchorages, with plenty of coves and beaches to explore, including Babbacombe Bay, Fishcombe Cove and Goodrington Beach.
