Superyacht Ready

Superyacht Ready is an accreditation available to marinas that have the minimum capacity and capabilities required to provide safe and adequate berthing for Superyachts. Superyacht Ready is available to Global Gold Anchor accredited marinas that satisfy the program’s assessment standards.

The Superyacht Ready criteria is based around the suitability of the marina’s infrastructure to accommodate superyachts, accessibility for superyachts, security measures and service availability. The program is designed to help skippers and owners identify suitable marinas for their vessel.

Superyacht Ready indicates that the marina is equipped to provide berthing for a superyacht and the Gold Anchor rating will give an insight into the extent of the facilities available at the marina, the service levels and the overall ambiance and opulence that one can expect.




   The Marina Industries Association Limited’s (MIA) Superyacht Ready accreditation is designed as a tool to identify marinas which have the minimum capacity, capabilities and infrastructure to provide safe and adequate berthing for superyachts. The Superyacht Ready accreditation does not consider the extent, quality or availability of the general facilities and amenities of a marina. The MIA’s Gold Anchor accreditation may provide further guidance as to a marina’s service, presentation, and amenities. The MIA recommends that those responsible for the berthing of a vessel make their own enquiries directly with the relevant marina regarding berthing suitability of the marina for the vessel in question as well as the level of service, presentation, and amenities provided at the marina.


  Superyacht Ready accreditation is self-assessed by participating marinas against the MIA’s guidelines. As such, the information used to accredit a marina is provided by that marina’s authorised representatives and the MIA does not guarantee the accuracy and/or reliability of that information or a marina’s self-assessment. The Superyacht Ready accreditation is provided for general information purposes only and should not be relied on. Participating marinas and each user of the Superyacht Ready accreditation program are responsible for making their own enquiries and should verify all relevant representations, statements and information related to Superyacht Ready accreditation.

The MIA does not warrant or accept any liability in relation to the quality or accuracy of a marina’s Superyacht Ready accreditation and disclaims, to the extent permitted by law, all express or implied warranties or representations with respect to such accreditation. Any person who seeks to access and/or use any information or material made available as part of the Superyacht Ready accreditation program acknowledges that they do so at their own risk and hereby agrees to release and indemnify the MIA as well as its employees, agents, servants and advisors against any and all liability for any claim, loss, damage, cost or expense (whether direct, indirect, consequential, contingent or special) whatsoever and howsoever arising in connection with your access to, and use of, such information and/or material.
