The 5 Gold Anchors Platinum is the institute’s highest distinction, which places the Flisvos Marina among the most remarkable marinas in the world for its exceptional premises and excellent services.

Flisvos is the second mega-yacht marina in Europe to receive the Platinum accreditation, and simultaneously the first marina to have more than 5 Gold Anchors in the Southeastern Mediterranean.

To receive the award, the Flisvos Marina had to meet the demanding criteria set by the Global Gold Anchor Scheme and carry out a 15-month program to upgrade its facilities and services.
