Isle de Sol wins super yacht marina of the year award

IGY marina awardFORT LAUDERDALE– IGY Marinas’ 5-Gold Anchor Yacht Club at Isle de Sol in St. Maarten, received the 2017 Super yacht Marina of the Year award. The company – which also received the prestigious accolade in 2016 for Yacht Haven Grande – was presented with the honor by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) during the annual London International Boat Show.

“IGY Marinas is truly humbled to once again be recognized by our customers for this renowned award,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas. “At IGY Marinas, we strive to provide an exceptional guest experience at each of our destinations.  This incredible distinction showcases how our marina guests value our caliber of service, and is a testament to our staff’s dedication and hard work at Yacht Club at Isle de Sol.”

TYHA once again teamed up with partner GJW Insurance to encourage customers from around the world to vote for their favorite marina among more than 80 destinations, which culminated in more than 4,000 casted votes. The awards are only open to Gold Anchor-accredited marinas that are considered the best-of-the-best by their customers worldwide.

This award for Yacht Club at Isle de Sol builds on the momentum of the marina’s recent completion of a major dredging project. The St. Maarten destination now offers its world-class service and facility to the wider class of super yachts with drafts of up to 17.5 feet (5.3 meters).
