Šibenik – The first marina with «five golden anchores»

Šibenik – The first marina with «five golden anchores» The Mandalina marina in Šibenik of the nautical center Prgin and the Turkish Dogus Group, wil be the first Croatian marina with the right to carry the «five golden anchores» grade of the British Yacht Harbour Association – TYHA. According to TYHA, the marina in Šibenik is a `perfect location`, a naturally protected peninsula located in the middle of idyllic natural beauty and close to numerous islands and national parks as well as the historical town of Šibenik. It also states that it has 367 new berths for boats up to 75 m in length.

The «golden anchores» are usually not wide spread outside of Great Britain and so on the Mediterranean there are only around ten marinas which are compatible with their standards. The categories run from one to five golden anchores as an equivalent to hotel stars. Marinas themselves apply for grading but afterwards must pass a check test of all elements. Candidates are visited by «mystery shoppers» and in the end a survey is carried out among berth users.

Marina Mandalina is located in the centre of the Croatian part of the Adriatic, between two national parks – the Kornati Archipelago and the waterfall of the River Krka. Located at the very bottom of the Šibenik Canal Bay, the marina is naturally protected from all winds. Mandalina has 350 berths in the sea and 50 dry ones. It is able to accommodate vessels up to 75 m in length.

By the end of this year the construction of an additional 65 berths for mega yachts should be completed and by the end of 2013 a whole tourist complex with a five star hotel, kuxury vilas and sports facilities should also be constructed.
