The IGY-managed Blue Haven Marina in Turks & Caicos has been awarded 5 Gold Anchors by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA).

The Gold Anchor Award Scheme is a voluntary assessment program focused on customer service and providing quality moorings. The ratings range from 1 to 5 Gold Anchors and provide assurance of the credibility and quality of the marina when assessed against the technical criteria based on TYHA’s Code of Practice for the design, construction and operation of marinas.  “Blue Haven Marina is the fourth marina within our IGY network to have achieved 5 Gold Anchor,” said Kenny Jones, executive vice president for IGY’s operations. “I am very proud of each of these marinas and to see them gain this recognition is fantastic.”

Blue Haven Marina is open to yachts up to 220 feet and a draft of 8.5 feet. The facility opened in 2013 within the Blue Haven Resort, which marina guests have full access to.

“We are very proud to be one of only four marinas in the Caribbean to have received the 5 Gold Anchors,” said Adam Foster, general manager of Blue Haven Marina. “We hope that this will help to further elevate yachting in Turks and Caicos.“

In other company news, IGY Marinas has implemented HavenStar marina management software that provides centralized sales and marketing across its international network of marinas.

Because customer information will be readily accessible across the network, IGY staff can share customer preferences and desires amongst marinas and enhance the customer experience, particularly arrival procedures, the company said.
