Nautilus Marine teams up with Marina Industries Association | Insurance Business Australia
Marine insurance specialist Nautilus Marine has entered a long-term partnership with the Marina Industries Association (MIA), the peak body representing the interests of marinas, boatyards, and industry suppliers in Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region.
Starting on August 01, the multi-layered partnership was designed to support MIA members and the broader marine industry by allowing Nautilus Marine to recognise MIA's accreditation programmes Gold Anchor and Clean Marina when assessing a marina's risk profile.
Gold Anchor and Clean Marina provide a thorough independent assessment across several criteria. Participation in such voluntary programs can provide insight into the marina's attitude towards environmental and operational risk management.

Lyndon Turner, the chief executive officer of Nautilus Marine, said the company aims to grow with MIA and support its initiatives and training programmes.
“All of us at Nautilus Marine Insurance are very excited to be partnering with the MIA. This partnership is a fantastic extension of our ongoing support of the marine industry and a logical fit, given our reputation as the leading supplier of specialist insurance products for the marine industry,” Turner said.
“Well-run marinas provide support and first-class experiences for boat owners, and at Nautilus Marine Insurance, we believe this should be recognised and rewarded. Through this partnership, we will be able to provide MIA members with greater awareness of their insurance risk. The partnership will also facilitate the sharing of key insights to allow both Nautilus Marine Insurance and the MIA to stay ahead of industry trends both locally and worldwide.”
MIA CEO Suzanne Davies said the partnership will improve MIA's ability to provide information, thought leadership, guidance, and support to its members in a complex and necessary area of their business management.
“We are absolutely delighted to partner with Nautilus Marine Insurance. Marina managers are asked by their customers daily to advise on vessel insurance. But the greatest risks that our members need to insure are their assets, businesses, and public liability,” Davies added.
MIA president Andrew Chapman added: “We have always had great relations with Nautilus Marine Insurance as long-time members, and we are now pleased to be forging a strong working partnership with Lyndon and his team. On behalf of the industry, I thank Nautilus Marine Insurance for this very strong show of support and commitment to the industry.”
