Everett Wins Marina of the Year

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Everett Marina was recently named the 2019 Marina of the Year in the large marina category (250+ slips) by Marina Dock Age magazine. The announcement was made during The Docks Expo in Nashville, Tenn.

The Port of Everett Marina – the largest publicly run marina on the West Coast – was one of more than 20 US facilities considered for the award.

The facilities are scored based on several factors, including business operations, facility improvements, advertising and marketing, environmental responsibility and community involvement. “Recent in-water and upland developments, quality customer service, high environmental standards, community and industry engagement and unique special events were among the attributes bringing Port of Everett’s ranking to the top,” according to the release.

“The Port of Everett is so much more than its 2,300 slips, which is an incredible amount of boaters to serve,” Marina Dock Age Editor Anna Townshend said. “Beyond all those vessels and the boatyard, it’s a local public treasure for anyone that wants to enjoy the waterfront. Not many marinas may be as big as the Port of Everett, but everyone can take away something from its amazing operation.”
