The Port of Edmonds marina has been named Marina of the Year by Marina Dock Age magazine, a national publication dedicated to marina and boatyard management.

Chris Keuss, executive director of the Port, will accept the award on behalf of the Port at the International Marina and Boatyard Conference in Tampa, Fla., later this month.Marinas apply for the award which is granted to the one that rates highest in environmental responsibility, customer satisfaction and commitment to employees and the community. This is the first time the Port of Edmonds has won the honor, according to Keuss.

Keuss said 2006 was an exciting year for the Port, with the introduction of the weather center offering real-time weather information 24 hours a day; the Destination: Port of Edmonds merchant/boater program; acquisition of buildings in Harbor Square; and steps toward redevelopment of the area under a public/private partnership.
