SERVICES AND SUPPORT TO THE INDUSTRY

It is fantastic to see the yachting industry being recognized in a supporting role to the overall Fiji tourism industry. The benefits that the yachting industry brings into the economy is many and varied. On average, an international yacht stays in Fiji for 180 days and spends an average of $32,000 with a spend-distribution which basically extends throughout the entire country. The majority of the income spent by visiting yachtspeople is foreign reserves pumped directly into the country.

VISITOR DINING EXPERIENCE

To be shortlisted with such an extensive list of well respected, internationally owned and operated restaurants is a great honour. Vuda Marina’s Boatshed Restaurant and Bar is the only standalone restaurant that is not associated with a resort amongst the shortlist. The Marina and its associated restaurant is 100% locally owned and is operated with an entirely local team. Being nominated against such restaurants is especially encouraging for the Marina given the broad financial and managerial backing of the other nominees.

ABOUT VUDA MARINA

The privately owned Vuda Marina Fiji has been in operation since 1996 and has inwater berthing for 78 vessels, hardstand working area for 30 vessels and 45 cyclone pits for a potential of 153 yachts at any one time. Vuda Marina is a recognized cyclone and storm shelter located just south of Lautoka city at 17° 40’ 54” S and 177° 23’ 09” E and is only 20 minutes from Nadi International Airport.

Vuda Marina won the award for “Services and Support to the Industry” and “Best Restaurant – Quality and Service” in 2014 and has once again been shortlisted for these same awards. Additionally the Marina and Restaurant have both been the recipient of Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence awards over the past 3 years.
