Jennifer BelinskiCanada’s first, purpose-built luxury yacht marina to feature dedicated 24/7 concierge service.

The $35 million Victoria International Marina, Canada’s first purpose-built luxury yacht marina, has just announced Jennifer Belinski as the leader of its 24/7 concierge service.

At the heart of the Pacific Northwest’s spectacular cruising waters, the Victoria International Marina is a dynamic marine destination for the boating community – and a marvelous place to explore.

“I am so proud to announce this very important and long-awaited addition to our team,” says Craig Norris, CEO of Victoria International Marina. “Chemistry Consulting, the Victoria firm hired to complete the search for the position, brought some serious competition to the position and the final decision was not an easy one, but we feel strongly that both our customers and our suppliers are going to love working with Jennifer. Her knowledge and experience in the yachting community is first-hand and first-class, this coupled with the fact that she is from BC, has us feeling truly lucky to have her on board.”

Belinski knows what the most discerning yacht owners are looking for. In her career, Belinski has served as yacht crew on numerous private and charter yachts (from 46’ sailing yachts to 350’ motor yachts) cruising the Caribbean, Mediterranean and US/Canadian waters. She has travelled across the Atlantic eight times and participated in classic yacht regattas. Throughout, the primary focus was on personalized customer service.

In her role as executive concierge, Belinski will be the gateway to the extraordinary diversity of experiences visitors can have in and around Victoria. The goal of the dedicated hands-on concierge service offered by the Victoria International Marina is to inspire visitors. Belinski and her team can create tailor-made, highly-customized experiences with local partners, according to the client’s personal tastes and preferences.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to promote BC to the international yachting community. Having spent my career cruising the world's waters with owners and crew, I know how truly remarkable they will find our coast. We are virtually uncharted waters to the superyacht world. Our region and lifestyle have all the raw resources large yachters are looking for, seemingly endless cruising water, adventure, rich cultural history, unparalleled natural beauty, tranquility, safe water and world-famous hospitality. My job will be to bring the best that the pacific marine lifestyle has to offer, to our customer, with the high-calibre service and support they are accustomed to.”

Victoria’s harbour is a well-situated hub for yachters to explore more than 25,000 km (15,534 miles) of coastline between Victoria and Alaska. Seven of the 28-slips at the Victoria International Marina (built to accommodate superyachts 65’ to 175’) are reserved for daily moorage (with a three-day minimum). Seven slips will be available for lease monthly (with a three-month minimum) and another seven available for annual lease. The final seven are being reserved for long-term tenants, with a 40-year lease. In addition to 24/7 concierge services, additional on-site amenities include state-of-the-art security and technology, 24/7 access to private office, boardroom and support services.

Luxury TaxOur industry needs everyone to raise their voice in opposition to the ill-considered Liberal Luxury Tax proposal.

The NMMA has shared results from the American introduction of a luxury tax in the early 1990s and the data should help persuade our government that this will be ineffective and overall, damaging to the industry and negative to their tax revenues.
