Anthony Colin Philp was awarded the Visionary Award during the 2015 ANZ Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards.The award recipient is generally described as bold, taking risks to establish a business new to Fiji and despite the challenges has been outstandingly successful.

Mr Philp has been seen as a leader in his field and has invested in developing a niche segment of the tourism industry.

He first became involved in the marine industry and yachting tourism in the 1960’s.

He had the vision and foresight to invest in Savusavu and on Western side of Viti Levu near Lautoka, developing two successful purpose build marinas catering for international cruising yachts.

In addition to his marina developments, for more than 30 years, he has been manufacturing and supplying boats to the tourism industry.

He has helped bring to Fiji, organise and run international sailing events such as the Hobie Worlds and Windsurfer one design world championships along with supporting The President’s Cup yachting event.

All of which have contributed to increasing the awareness of Fiji as an international yachting and sailing destination.

His keen business acumen and commitments to Fiji have been the driving forces behind his success.

Thus, the Board of Trustees felt Mr Philp was a worthy recipient of the award
