IGY opens fuel dock in Potomac

ADVERTISEMENT

IGY Marinas has opened a newly built fuel dock serving the upper Potomac region at National Harbor Marina. Now open to marina guests, the fuel dock features new fuel lines, a state-of-the-art piping system, and a new cloud-base authorization system that can accommodate up to four vessels at a time. The marina houses four pumps – two that offer 89 mid-grade unleaded gasoline with no more than 10% ethanol, and two that offer  ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel capable of fueling at 15 gallons per minute. Fuel rates are available by contacting the marina directly. Fuel dock hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday; and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday, including holidays. Appointments can be made for alternative times to accommodate the needs of guests.

“IGY Marinas is thrilled to once again offer fuel accommodations at National Harbor Marina, especially now that the Northeast is in high boating season,” Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas, said in a statement.

National Harbor Marina, an IGY destination, has more than 80 floating dock slips that can accommodate yachts in excess of 150 feet with up to a 9-foot draft. The marina offers complimentary Wi-Fi, cable, water and refuse bins; a security gate with pin code entrance; and private shower and laundry facilities.

Situated on the banks of the historic Potomac River in downtown National Harbor and 15 minutes from Washington, D.C., the marina is within steps of Tanger Outlets shopping and other tourist attractions, such as the Capital Wheel and MGM National Harbor Resort & Casino.

In other news, IGY’s Blue Haven Marina in the Turks and Caicos Islands was recognized as a 5-Gold Anchor facility by the Yacht Harbour Association. In 2014, Blue Haven also earned the accreditation, which is presented every three years. Blue Haven Marina has 100 slips with 45 megayacht berths accommodating vessels longer than 200 feet and all of the requisite electrical requirements.
