aqueduct marina wins inland marina of year

Church Minshull Aqueduct Marina has won the UK Inland Marina of the Year 2018 at London Boat Show For the second year running.

The marina, in the heart of the Cheshire canal network on the Shropshire Union Canal, was exhibiting for the first time with their own stand at the London Boat Show.

The award is voted for by marina berth holders, backed by insurers NMU, and recognises the best of more than 160 Gold Anchor accredited marinas across the globe.

Robert Parton, managing director at Aqueduct Marina, said: “We are delighted to have won the Inland Marina of Year award 2018.

“In an increasingly competitive market where customers have plenty of choice of marinas and moorings around the inland network.

“It is particularly rewarding to win as a result of boat owners’ votes.

“Our thanks go to all those who voted for Aqueduct Marina, The Yacht Harbour Association for organising and to NMU for sponsoring.”

Simon Haigh, chairman of The Yacht Harbour Association, praised the marina.

He said: “Many congratulations to Aqueduct in the NMU Marina of the Year Awards 2018.

“These awards have built huge momentum since they were introduced and really mean something because it is marina customers who are voting for their marinas, recognising the excellence of facilities provided and the level of service which they receive.

“Aqueduct has been endorsed by customers in the best possible way – to become Marina of the Year in their respective categories, which must be a hugely motivating and satisfying achievement.”

Aqueduct directors Robert Parton, Andrea Parton, Jennifer Parton, Stuart Martin and Phil Langley were presented with an etched glass trophy and framed certificate by NMU.
