Geomac, a leading marina management company owned by Land and Water Group, is thrilled to announce that Campbell Wharf Marina has been awarded The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) Inland Marina of the Year 2023. The prestigious award was presented during the Southampton International Boat Show on September 20, 2023, and it marks a significant achievement for the marina.
Campbell Wharf Marina is situated in the idyllic Campbell Park, boasting a prime location along the scenic Grand Union Canal. Its proximity to central Milton Keynes offers boating enthusiasts the perfect blend of urban convenience and natural beauty.
Managed by Heather Graham Thompson and Mike Garforth, Campbell Wharf is operated by Geomac on behalf of the Milton Keynes Parks Trust, a registered charity.
Neil Warren, director of Geomac says: “I am delighted that Campbell Wharf Marina has won The Yacht Harbour Association Inland Marina of the Year Award, presented at Southampton International Boat Show. Well done to the whole team, it’s a fantastic achievement and something to be incredibly proud of.”
Jon White, General Manager of TYHA, says: "These awards are voted for by berth holders and celebrate the very best marinas both in the UK and overseas, providing a perfect opportunity to recognise those marinas that go above and beyond, offering outstanding quality and service to their berth holders and visitors."
Geomac has previously achieved the Inland Marina of the Year award in 2014 with Caen Hill Marina, in Wiltshire, which was also a runner-up in 2015.
At the September award ceremony, Paul Knox-Johnston, sales and marketing manager at Haven Knox-Johnston, noted: “Marinas play such an integral role in helping bring our boating community together. Congratulations to all the winners who have gone above and beyond to deliver such brilliant experiences and after a long day of sailing, help welcome so many of our customer's home.”
Campbell Wharf Marina's recognition as Inland Marina of the Year 2023 underscores Geomac’s commitment to providing a world-class experience for its berth holders and visitors. Other Geomac marinas include Shakespeare Marina, Caen Hill Marina and Northwich Marina.
