AN organisation dedicated to preserving and sharing one of WA’s most important pieces of maritime history took out two gongs, including the coveted Business of the Year, at Friday night’s Fremantle Business Awards.

The Duyfken 1606 Replica Foundation won a rare double on the night, also picking up the Outstanding Community Event award.

The Fremantle Foundation also took home two awards, for Outstanding Personal Achievement and Corporate Social Responsibility.

Other winners included the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre for Outstanding Cultural Enterprise, OM ThreeSixty for Outstanding New Business, Fremantle Prison for Tourism Excellence and The National Hotel for Excellence in Hospitality.

Hosted by Matt Tinney, the awards night recognises the success of Fremantle businesses and the contribution they have made to the area in the last 12 months.
