New Marina Standards From TYHA

Marina Projects Ltd has recently acted as a specialist consultant to the British Marine Federation on The Yacht Harbour Association’s (TYHA) 7th Edition Code of Practice, designed to offer a guide to best practice for any marina designer, developer or operator.

The Code of Practice, which is supplied free of charge to all TYHA members takes into consideration the needs of TYHA’s expanding international membership, new industry guidelines and with an increased emphasis on the operation of marinas.

This 7th Edition contains over 4,000 technical updates which have been independently reviewed by legal, health and safety experts and in conjunction with specialist marina consultancy, Marina Projects.  The guidelines found within the 6th edition were considered of such gravitas that the Cypriot government applied it as statute.

Gareth Turnbull, General Manager of TYHA said:

“We are really excited for the launch of the 7th Edition Code of Practice…The Code draws on the best regarded practices in the industry, making it essential reading for avoiding serious risks and implementing the most proven solutions to technical issues.”

Mike Ward, Project Director at Marina Projects, TYHA’s key consulting partner on this project, commented:

“The TYHA Code of Practice provides an invaluable reference document for anyone embarking on a marine leisure related development. It is a useful starting point for the design process, identifying essential principles as well as highlighting key issues and areas of complexity. It is our experience that its reach extends well beyond the UK and it is particularly well used in new and emerging markets.  We were delighted to provide assistance as a consultant to TYHA with the latest revision of the Code.”

Nick Horton from Dorade Law stated:

“The TYHA Code of Practice is used throughout the world as a definitive guide to best practice. It is a document which every marina operator should read through to understand industry best practices.”
