IGY Marinas’ Yacht Club at Isle de Sol in Sint Maarten was named the 2017 Superyacht Marina of the Year by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) during the annual London International Boat Show.

“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,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas.

Yacht Club at Isle de Sol recently completed a dredging project that now allows vessels with drafts of up to 17.5 feet (5.3m).

For its 2017 International Marina of the Year, TYHA tapped Karpaz Gate Marina in North Cyrpus, which holds five gold anchors, the association’s highest accolade for service and operational standards available in the industry.

“Only five years ago, the potential of North Cyprus as a yachting destination was largely unidentified,” said Deniz Akaltan, the marina’s harbour master. “It was a huge challenge to introduce this piece of heaven on earth to the yachting community, so we are delighted to have achieved this and that our clients share our enthusiasm.”
