Unique busi­ness sails to vic­tory

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Escape’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Trevor Rees was hon­oured to win the Unique Ac­com­mo­da­tion gold for the sec­ond year run­ning on Satur­day night.

The char­ter boat com­pany, spe­cial­is­ing in ‘skip­per-your­self’ boat­ing hol­i­days, also won the same prize in 2010.

“It has been a very tough year,” Mr Rees said.

“Yet, with the sup­port of our great staff, we have seen our busi­ness grow from strength-to-strength.

“We are very con­fi­dent about the long-term future of Whit­sun­days, par­tially in light of the re­cent govern­ment fund­ing.”

Mr Rees also said he was hope­ful that a num­ber of Whit­sun­day op­er­a­tors would be recog­nised at the up­com­ing Queens­land Tourism Awards.

The Whit­sun­day Escape char­ter base is lo­cated at Air­lie Beach with 33 boats on offer and count­less an­chor­ages.

Reser­va­tions man­ager Alita De Brin­cat said the team mem­bers were at the heart and soul of the busi­ness suc­cess.

“Every cus­tomer in­ter­ac­tion, from the first phone call to the fi­nal good­bye is ex­em­plary and we wouldn’t have won the award with­out it,” she said.

So what makes the busi­ness so unique?

“It’s all in one, in that you get your ac­com­mo­da­tion as well as tours all to­gether in one fab­u­lous hol­i­day,” Ms De Brin­cat said.
